New Mexico vs Nevada Betting Prediction

Both of these teams come into this matchup right in the middle of the Mountain West race, so this is a huge game for both teams. Nevada is on a three game winning streak and they beat San Diego State and Utah State in their last two games. New Mexico has dropped two of their last three, allowing 80 and 86 points in the losses. Nevada comes into this game with a bunch of confidence after their last two wins and I think they are catching New Mexico at a good time. Take the Wolf Pack here.
