Matchup History

Fresno State’s 71-67 win over New Mexico back on January 3rd, 2023, made it seven straight wins for the Bulldogs in this head-to-head matchup.


Fresno State is 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 Tuesday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 road games. 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.
