MWC college basketball action pits the Fresno State Bulldogs against the New Mexico Lobos.

The Fresno State Bulldogs have been playing well with wins in four of five after a 65-63 victory against Boise State on Wednesday.

The normally potent offense of Fresno  State  was  held in check but the equally stout defense was able to pick up the slack.

Braxton Huggins was the Bulldogs top gun with 26 points and three yanks with Nate Grimes adding 13 points and hauling in 15 rebounds.

Deshon  Taylor gave  Fresno  State eleven  points  followed by Noah  Blackwell  who contributed  another  ten points.

The New Mexico Lobos are coming off of a 92-60  rout of visiting San Jose State on Wednesday as a 15 point favorite.

New Mexico has usually been able to score but their problems have been on the defensive end of the floor but the Spartans couldn’t take advantage.

The balanced Lobos saw 20 points and four pulls from Keith McGee followed by Corey Manigault added 17 points and six boards.

Makuach Maluach gave New Mexico 14 points and five pulls while Anthony Mathis came off the bench to score 16 points.

Fresno State Bulldogs are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and Fresno State Bulldogs are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Mountain West.

New Mexico Lobos are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and New Mexico Lobos are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up win.

Fresno State Bulldogs are 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings and over is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.

Fresno State is a top team in the Mountain West and I look for the season sweep here…

Pick:
Fresno State -3 (line drop to -1.5)

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
