Sam Houston vs. NMSU Prediction
I’m picking New Mexico State to win and cover the spread at -3.5. I’m also predicting the game will go Under 42.5 total points.
Sam Houston is last in CUSA in terms of scoring on offense. In fact, NMSU has scored three times as many points (183) as the Bearkats (54) for the season.
I like Sam Houston’s defense, though, which is why I believe the two teams won’t quite combine for 43 or more points. But Aggies quarterback Diego Pavia, who leads the team in passing and rushing yards, should be able to lead NMSU to a seven-point victory.
