2020 Mountain West Tournament Odds: San Diego State Are Huge Favorites
This is the Aztecs tournament to lose.
Can anyone challenge SDSU?
The 2020 Mountain West basketball tournament begins on Wednesday with the opening round games. The real focus will be later in the tournament as San Diego State is a huge favorite and looking to lock down a No. 1 seed if they can win the tournament.
The Aztecs have just one loss this year and are in a good position to claim stake to one of the four best teams. The odds that TeamRankings.com place on the tournament which goes round by round are basically chalk with San Diego State given the best odds to win it all at nearly 50 percent. Utah State is the only other team to be given double-digits to claim the Mountain West tournament title.
UNLV has some home-court advantage with these games being played on their home court at the Thomas and Mack. Yet, even with that, their fourth seed is also the odds they are getting to win the whole thing and just a hair behind rival Nevada from these oddsmakers.
If there are any upsets look for them to be in teh bottom half of the bracket.
KenPom has similar odds but the one difference is UNLV is given better odds to win the title over Nevada, but the Wolf Pack are nearly twice as likely to actually make it to the finals. That disparity is because the Rebels would have to beat San Diego State for the second time this year.
