College basketball picks for Utah State vs. San Diego State

Before tuning into the San Diego State vs. Utah State game, you need to see the college basketball picks from SportsLine's advanced computer model. The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every Division I college basketball game 10,000 times. The model enters conference tournament week 76-51 on all-top rated college basketball picks this season, returning nearly $1,200 for $100 players. Anybody who has followed it has seen huge returns. 

For San Diego State vs. Utah State, the model projects that the Aggies cover the spread. Utah State has been the hottest team in the Mountain West since the middle of February, winning seven consecutive games to get into the title game. The Aggies beat Boise State by double digits twice during that stretch, including a 72-62 win in Friday's semifinal matchup as 2-point favorites.

Adam Seiko hit seven consecutive 3-pointers to open the game for San Diego State when it beat Utah State in January, but the Aggies made some adjustments and held him scoreless in the rematch. San Diego State has not been at its best during the conference tournament, shooting less than 41% from the floor in both of its wins. The Aztecs' lone double-digit scorer, Matt Bradley, was held to eight points on 3 of 10 shooting against San Jose State in the semifinals.

Utah State has more offensive firepower, with five players scoring in double figures. Junior guard Steven Ashworth averages 16.4 points, 4.6 assists and 3.3 rebounds per game, while grad transfer Taylor Funk is averaging 13.6 points and has drilled 78 3-pointers at a 38.8% clip. SportsLine's model thinks Utah State's scoring prowess will be too much for San Diego State to match the third time around, as the Aggies are covering the spread well over 60% of the time. Stream the game here.
