Brigham Young San Diego State Betting – Mountain West Giants Tangle In Massive Game

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/6/2014 1:58:38 AM

The Brigham Young Cougars and the San Diego State Aztecs both want the same things, but only one of these two teams can claim them. A huge showdown will be staged this weekend.

Why To Bet On Brigham Young

The sports betting world is surely cognizant of the fact that BYU owns the best player on the floor in this game, which will decide the Mountain West regular-season championship for 2011. Jimmer Fredette is a top-three finalist for the Naismith Award as the player of the year in college basketball. Only Ohio State center Jared Sullinger and Connecticut guard Kemba Walker can compete with Fredette on a national scale. Fredette doesn’t play terrifically hard on defense, but his teammates and coaching staff acknowledge that he’s on the floor for one reason: to score and score often. Fredette possesses ridiculous shooting range, within 35 feet of the basket to be exact. His crossover is lethal, his dribble-penetration ability is formidable, and he can shoot the ball from all sorts of angles and positions. Fredette wasn’t stopped in the first meeting between these two teams, and although that game was decided by San Diego State’s inability to score, “The Jimmer” was still the player who impacted the flow of play more than anybody else. BYU coach Dave Rose might not be the same kind of tactician that San Diego State coach Steve Fisher is, but with Fredette, the calculus of this contest shifts considerably toward the Cougars. Fredette is a basketball equivalent of a prize NHL trade deadline acquisition. BYU has him, SDSU doesn’t. That will matter on Saturday in San Diego.

Why To Bet On San Diego State

Online betting experts will point out that San Diego State has a full week of rest in advance of this game. The Aztecs’ last contest came on February 19 against Air Force, while BYU has a Feb. 23 game against Colorado State to deal with. San Diego State began to feel the stress and strain of its schedule in recent weeks; the Aztecs barely won at Colorado State and UNLV, and they were less than fully convincing in a wobbly 68-62 win last week at home against an average New Mexico squad. San Diego State needed some extra time off, and now that the Aztecs will get a week off before this huge five-star throwdown against their foremost competitor, they should be physically fresh, but also mentally rejuvenated. San Diego State and BYU are both playing for a conference championship. They’re also both playing for a shot at a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. In a game like this, intangible advantages such as rest have a very good chance of affecting the outcome. If intangibles matter, SDSU has the edge.

How The Game Will Play Out

NHL trade rumors might be generating buzz in the hockey world, but BYU-San Diego State will be the talk of the college basketball world this weekend. San Diego State’s rest should matter, and the Aztecs should score a lot more than they did in their 71-58 loss at BYU one month ago in Provo, Utah. This will be a very close contest, but San Diego State should dig out a narrow win at home.
