The New Mexico Lobos are the more talented team and should be favored, obviously, but they’re also hit or miss defensively, and it allows lesser teams to hang around. The Jacksonville State Gamecocks are also a decent defensive team, and we know they’ll be the more motivated side here. Jacksonville State doesn’t get these chances often against respectable programs. I’ll take my chances with the points.
