FRESNO ST over New Mex­ico by 1

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 5 Octoberama Lts Football Special! -

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.
