New Mexico is 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-5-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall while the over is 7-2-1 in their last 10 games overall.
I’m backing New Mexico here. Current bracketology reports have New Mexico on the outside looking in, so a sluggish performance here would almost be a death nail in their proverbial coffin. Fresno State has surprised in spots, but with New Mexico desperate here along with the fact that it’s senior night for the Lobos, I just think this is setting up to be a tough spot for the Bulldogs. I’ll side with New Mexico at home laying the points.
