The New Mexico Lobos and the Nevada Wolf Pack meet in college basketball action from the Lawlor Events Center on Monday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


Nevada is listed as a 2.5-point home favorite with a ML price of -140. The total for this game is set at 147.5 points.


Braden Appelhans and Emmanuel Kuac are both out for the season for the Lobos while K.J. Hymes is out for the season for Nevada.

Matchup History

Nevada’s 79-72 win over New Mexico back on March 9th, 2022 made it 7 straight wins for the Wolf Pack and 11 wins in the last 12 head-to-head meetings.


New Mexico is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record and 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 Monday games while the over is 7-3 in their last 10 games overall. Nevada is 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 home games and 16-5-2 ATS in their last 23 games overall while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 home games against a team with a road winning percentage above .600.


I’m sticking with Nevada here. This may be the best Lobos team that Nevada will have to face over the course of their current win streak against New Mexico, but Nevada’s been flat out dominant at home and pretty much overall against the spread and I just don’t see that changing here. I’ll lay the points with Nevada in this one.
