The Utah State Aggies are quietly riding a six-game winning streak and have covered four straight games as well. The New Mexico Lobos can't find consistent offense, have lost four straight outright and aren't covering numbers. Oddsmakers are telling us what they think of both teams here given the thick line. There's better betting options on a decent Wednesday CBB card, but if forced to pick this game, I'd have to side with Utah State and the chalk. These teams feel like they're heading in different directions.
