New Mexico Lobos +14.5

The New Mexico Lobos will travel to the CU Events Center to take on the Colorado Buffaloes this Saturday night and I think this is just too many points to give the Lobos in this one.

New Mexico is currently in rebuilding mode, however, they were able to hire Ricard Pitino in the offseason and bring in some impactful transfers, including Jaelen House & Jamal Mashburn Jr. who combined for 44 points in their season opening win against Florida Atlantic. New Mexico was solid offensively in the victory, shooting 53.0% from the field and 52.2% from beyond the arc.

Colorado has been solid over the past few years, however, I think this team is going to take a step back this season as they have a lot of unproven talent and not longer have their leader in McKinley Wright IV. Colorado was able to pick up a win against Montana State to kick off their season, however, they had to fight back from a 5-point deficit with under a minute left just to force OT.

The Lobos are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Buffaloes are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600, however, are just 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games.

Colorado is a tough place to play, however, the Buffaloes didn’t look great in their season opener and as I think the Lobos offense can keep this game competitive, I think the play here is to take the Lobos and the points.

Brett’s Pick New Mexico Lobos: +14.5 -105
