Colorado State vs. New Mexico Prediction

I’m on New Mexico here. The Rams are a solid team, but the Lobos have been so good at home for the better part of the season and I’m just not in a spot where I want to go against that right now, especially with so much at stake in terms of seeding for the NCAA tournament and even sooner, the Mountain West conference tournament. I’ll lay it and play it with New Mexico at home in this one.
