The Lobos are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games vs. a team with a winning home record & 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Aggies are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games & 9-4 in their last 13 Tuesday games.

New Mexico has been able to pick up some wins against easy competition early this season, however, the Lobos are 0-3 in road/neutral site games with their last two losses against UAB & Towson coming by a combined 28 points. New Mexico State has been solid outside of their blowout loss against Utah State and as I think their offense, which ranks 93rd in FG% & 63rd in 3P-FG%, will have success against a New Mexico defense that ranks just t-304th in scoring defense, I’m taking New Mexico State to cover this large spread at home. Good Luck!
