FRESNO ST over New Mexico by 1
The West Coast Bulldogs were all but forgotten after being euthanized in early losses to Alabama and Washington, but that hasn’t been enough to blunt their emergence under new head coach Jeff Tedford. Since those blowouts, back-to-back Mountain West Conference wins have put 3-2 Fresno State in a tie atop the West Division with San Diego State. On the flip side, the Mountain Division race is wide-open with five teams – including the Lobos – within one game of the top spot. Recent series history favors Fresno as New Mexico is a putrid 1-9 SU and 2-6 ATS the last 10 meetings, including the last five. However, current form finds the Lobos off consecutive SUATS dog wins, with head coach Bob Davie trying for the hat trick here. UNM’s spotless success as a road dog after allowing 35 or more points has us reaching for the wallet but we can’t go all in against a Fresno State squad that’s been outstatting foes by 99 YPG this season. You’re on your own as this West Coast war looks too close to call.
