New Mexico takes on Colorado State in Mountain West action on Saturday afternoon. The Rams are coming off a dominating performance against Air Force, winning 87-64 on Tuesday. The Lobos fell to UNVL at home, 80-69 on Tuesday. New Mexico crushed the Rams, 108-87 in their last meeting on Feb. 28, 2018.

Letdown at home

After upsetting the undefeated Nevada Wolfpack by 27 at home on Saturday, the Lobos had an obvious letdown in an 80-69 loss on Tuesday against UNLV. New Mexico shot just 41.8 percent from the floor and 22.2 percent (4-18) from beyond the arc. UNLV shot 50 percent from the field and 6-of-13 from beyond the arc in the defeat. Vance Jackson led the Lobos with 14 points, while Corey Manigault added 13 points and five boards. The Lobos couldn’t stop Kris Clyburn, had 25 points and nine rebounds.

This was a disappointing loss for the Lobos, who had won three straight after losing two straight. On the season, New Mexico is led by Anthony Matthis, who averages 15.9 points per game. Vance Jackson leads in rebounds (6.9), field goal percentage (44.7%) and steals (1.1). New Mexico has not struggled that much on the offensive end, averaging 78.3 points per game on 43.6 percent shooting (36% 3pt). The defense is the problem, as they allow 76.2 points per game (277th), 44.9 percent shooting (264th) and 33.7% 3pt shooting.

Rams roll over Falcons

Colorado State had lost five straight games heading into their home game against Air Force on Tuesday. Air Force proved to be the perfect remedy for what they needed on Tuesday night. The Rams shot 56.5 percent from the field and turned the ball over just seven times (Air Force committed 16) in their 23-point win. Nico Carvacho led the way with 27 points and nine rebounds, while Kendle Moore added 23 points and five assists for Colorado State.

Carvacho leads the Rams with 16.2 points per game and 12.7 rebounds on 60.5 percent shooting. The Rams have issues on the defensive end and they only outrebound teams by just 1.8 per game. On offense, they are averaging 75.4 points per game on 46.5 percent shooting (33.8% 3pt). They allow 76.5 points per game on 44.6 percent shooting (36.3% 3pt).

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Lobos learned their lesson after losing to UNLV at home. That was a massive letdown after shocking undefeated Nevada last Saturday. New Mexico is 4-1 on the road, so this road trip won’t be that big of a deal. The Rams had lost five straight before crushing Air Force. The Lobos get back on track with a win here at Colorado State.

Prediction: New Mexico

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

One of the keys to beating Nevada was an outstanding defensive effort by the Lobos, who held them to just 58 points. That defense was missing against UNLV, when they allowed 80. They’ll be back against a Colorado State team that struggles at times on offense. The under is also 12-4 the last 16 in this series. New Mexico is 7-1 Under their last 8 overall.

Prediction: Under
