Against The Spread Pick
Chicago State enters this one having gone 0-20 in conference and having 0 wins against D1 opponents this year. The Cougars are arguably the worst team in the country only averaging 61 points per game. Their defense is atrocious allowing 82 points per game and letting opponents shoot at a 48 percent clip. New Mexico State on the other hand allows the 5th least points per game in the country at 59 and they average 71.4 points per game. They shoot the ball really well and should absolutely steamroll the Cougars in this one. Last time they played the score was 71-49 and this should be similar if not worse. Take the Aggies with the points.
Over Under Pick
The Cougars are going to come into this one hard pressed to score points. They shoot the ball poorly and barely score as it is let alone against a team that plays very good defense. Chicago State has only scored over 60 points twice in their last 10 games. New Mexico State has only scored over 80 points twice in their last 10 games. The total has gone under in 8 of Chicago State’s last 10 games and in 15 of Chicago State’s last 20 games played on a Thursday. The total has also gone under in 5 of New Mexico State’s last 6 games played on a Thursday. Take the under with confidence.
