Colorado State at New Mexico odds, lines, picks and predictions


Colorado State 78, New Mexico 73

Money line

Colorado State (-320) will cost you nearly three-and-a-half times your potential return, and that’s just too risky on the road against a New Mexico (+250) side that is very tough at home.


Against the spread

Taking NEW MEXICO +7.5 (-115) on its home hardwood is the way to go. Colorado State -7.5 (-107) has been outstanding this season and is headed for the NCAA Tournament. UNM has been hot at home, including a 75-66 win against conference contender Wyoming last time out as a 5.5-point underdog. The Lobos have won four of the past five games overall and might be playing their best ball of the season.


The UNDER 154.5 (-115) is the lean in this Mountain West tussle. The Under is 5-2 in the past seven for UNM as an underdog, while the Under has hit in 11 of the past 16 games overall for Colorado State. The Under is also 10-4 in the past 14 games for the Rams as a favorite.
