Wednesday Late Action

Editor's Note: Kevin Rogers is the money leader in college basketball at +4,250. His five winners for tonight can be purchased on VegasInsider.com Click to win!

Both the Pac-12 and the Mountain West conferences get lost in the shuffle during tournament time with most of the focus falling on the East Coast and Midwest programs. Six teams inside the Pac-12 own at least 18 victories, while four clubs in the MWC have reached the 20-win mark already. We'll start the late look at the college card in Albuquerque with two rivals that are bound for the NCAA Tournament.

San Diego State at New Mexico - 10:15 PM EST

The Lobos begin this week ranked third in the latest RPI ratings, as New Mexico (23-4 SU and 14-10-2 ATS) seeks its fourth consecutive victory. Steve Alford's team improved to 10-2 in Mountain West play after knocking off Colorado State on Saturday, 91-82 to cash outright as six-point road underdogs. Kendall Williams lifted the Lobos to a strong second-half surge after trailing by three at halftime, as the guard put up 46 points, including 10 three-pointers.

The Aztecs (20-7 SU, 12-9-1 ATS) are fresh off consecutive home victories over Wyoming and Nevada by double-digits, but barely missed cashing in Saturday's triumph over the Wolf Pack as 13 ½-point favorites. San Diego State hasn't had the best luck on the highway, losing four of its last five away from Viejas Arena, including close setbacks to UNLV, Colorado State, and Air Force by a combined 11 points. Steve Fisher's squad is listed as a road underdog for the third time this season (eliminating the three times in neutral-site situations), as the Aztecs posted a 1-0-1 ATS record the first two times in this role.

San Diego State cruised past New Mexico in its first meeting this season in Southern California, 55-34 as 3 ½-point favorites. The 34 points was obviously a season-low for the Lobos, who shot a dreadful 25% from the field. New Mexico has lost each of the last two home matchups with San Diego State, but the Lobos own a perfect 6-0 SU and 5-0-1 ATS record at The Pit in conference play.

Colorado at Stanford - 11:00 PM EST

The Cardinal's hopes at an NCAA tournament bid are slipping away after losing three of the last four games, including a pair of home defeats to USC and UCLA. Stanford (16-12 SU and 11-14-1 ATS) returns to Maples Pavilion following a split in the Beaver State at Oregon State and Oregon last week, while getting thumped by 11 points in Eugene on Saturday.

Things don't get easier for the Cardinal tonight, who faces a Colorado (18-8 SU, 14-10 ATS) squad that seeks its ninth conference victory, while seeking a season sweep of Stanford. The Buffaloes pounded the Cardinal, 75-54 in Boulder on January 24 to cash easily as four-point favorites. CU grabbed a 15-point halftime advantage and never looked back as the Buffs held Stanford to 31% shooting from the floor.

Tad Boyle's club has won four of their last five games, with the lone loss coming at the buzzer in overtime to Arizona State. Colorado has cashed in four of five opportunities as a road underdog in conference play, including outright victories at Oregon, Oregon State, and Washington State over the last month. Nine of the last 10 games for the Buffaloes have finished 'under' the total, including six straight away from Boulder.

Arizona State at UCLA - 11:30 PM EST

Two of the squads seeking to catch Arizona atop the Pac-12 hook up in Los Angeles tonight as the Bruins are turning the corner. Since losing at home in overtime to USC to wrap up in January, Ben Howland's team is rolling with four victories in the last five contests. The Bruins (20-7 SU, 11-15 ATS) avenged the home defeat to the Trojans by blasting USC this past Sunday, 75-59 as short road favorites.

The Sun Devils (20-8, 14-9 ATS) wrapped up January with three consecutive victories, but ASU is just 3-4 SU/ATS the last seven contests. The 'under' has cashed in six straight games for Arizona State, while being listed as an underdog for the second time in the previous seven contests. ASU has cashed four of five times in conference play as a road 'dog, as the Sun Devils look for the season sweep of the Bruins after drilling UCLA, 78-60 in late January as three-point home 'dogs.

Since starting conference play at 2-0, the Bruins have failed to cover four of their previous five games at Pauley Pavilion. UCLA has alternated 'overs' and 'unders' in each of the last nine games, coming off an 'under' in Sunday's blowout of USC. The Bruins have failed to cover three straight contests this season, while posting a 2-8 ATS record off an ATS win.
