The No. 22 San Diego State Aztecs look to put an end to the Boise State Broncos' winning streak when the two MWC rivals collide at Viejas Arena on Friday, Feb. 3.

Boise State enters tonight's contest riding a three-game winning streak, most recently defeating Air Force 59-52 on Tuesday. Meanwhile, San Diego State was on a four-game run before suffering a 75-66 loss to Nevada three nights ago.

Does Boise State have what it takes to extend its winning streak to four games? Or will San Diego State feed off the home crowd's energy to secure the victory?

San Diego State vs Boise State Prediction & Pick

I expect a competitive battle between the two teams at the top of the MWC standings. One reason why San Diego State and Boise State have had success is that they've been able to create separation from their opponents. The Aztecs currently boast a plus-7.2 scoring margin (No. 62) while the Broncos sit at plus-10.6 (No. 18).

Having said that, it's hard to doubt San Diego State at Viejas Arena, where the Aztecs are 11-1 so far this season. They've also had a decent amount of success against the Broncos at home, winning five of the last six matchups in San Diego. Furthermore, Boise State is only 4-3 on the road this season.

Boise State might also be shorthanded tonight as leading rebounder Marcus Shaver Jr. (ankle) is doubtful while Naje Smith (leg) is questionable. San Diego State has more than enough talent to take advantage of this situation and pick up the victory.

Final Score Prediction: San Diego State: 74 | Boise State: 71

San Diego State vs Boise State Best Bet

Although I expect San Diego State to win, Boise State should keep it closer than expected. The Aztecs might be 4-1 ATS in their last five games, but they're only 2-3 ATS against MWC opponents at home this season. In fact, they're 3-7-1 ATS at Viejas Arena overall.

Meanwhile, Boise State has covered the spread in six of its last eight games, also going 4-2-1 ATS on the road thus far. With the Broncos having a lot of recent momentum on their side, expect an even matchup tonight.

Bet: Boise State +5.5 (-102)
