The San Diego State Aztecs have failed to cover each of their last eight games as a double-digit favorite. SDSU hasn't covered a double-digit number since November of 2017. The New Mexico State Aggies have failed to cover seven of their last 11 games as a double-digit underdog. While New Mexico State is going to benefit greatly getting beat up by the big boys they schedule, the Aggies just aren't built to compete with them just yet. The San Diego State Aztecs should have a field day in the trenches and just bull their way with defense and a physical ground game. The San Diego State Aztecs finally cover a double-digit number.
