Over Under Pick
Nevada and New Mexico both rank in the bottom defensively in the Mountain West Conference, as well as both teams in the top 30 in all of D1 for scoring. They are also the top two scoring teams in the Mountain West. Nevada’s last five games are a sign that they will continue to have their way in the scoring department vs New Mexico. And despite New Mexico’s lackluster scoring in their past five, they are now facing a bottom-tier defensive team in the conference. Expect both teams to do their fair share of scoring in tonight’s game. Take the over tonight.
