Great Osobor (Forward) vs. Jamal Mashburn Jr. (Guard)


Great Osobor of Utah State has been one of the standout players this season in college basketball. Averaging 18.9 points and 9.6 rebounds per game while boasting impressive shooting stats like his 58.5% field goal percentage and 69.1% free throw percentage; along with 1.5 blocks and 0.9 steals per game Osobor is an effective presence that impacts both ends of the court.


Jamal Mashburn Jr. of New Mexico brings with him his scoring prowess – 16.5 points per game with an outstanding free throw percentage of 84.6 and an effective field goal percentage of 36 indicates his speedy scoring prowess; yet this matchup might require him to find more efficient scoring opportunities in order to be effective.

Osobor’s all-around game against Mashburn’s scoring ability will be one of many interesting storylines to keep an eye on; if Osobor can successfully defend Mashburn and reduce his scoring ability effectively enough, that would provide significant advantages to Aggies over rival teams.

Utah State Betting Trends


Utah State has been on an impressive winning streak lately, winning five games without being covered against the point spread over their five game run. Yet betting bettors need not expect them to always meet expectations as Utah State only boasts a 3-2 mark when covering point spreads over that span of time.


New Mexico Betting Trends


New Mexico has shown itself to be an impressive squad in their last five games, posting an exemplary 3-2 mark against Utah State while remaining competitive against their competition. While their road game performance may have left something to be desired, their record against the spread was less-than-stellar at only 4-for-7 against them; suggesting they may struggle when away from home.
