The Line: New Mexico Lobos +21.5 -- Over/Under: 59.5
The Air Force Falcons and New Mexico Lobos meet Saturday in week 13 college football action at Dreamstyle Stadium.
The Air Force Falcons look for another win to build on their five-game winning streak. The Air Force Falcons have won three of their last five road games. Donald Hammond III is completing 45.8 percent of his passes for 838 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions. Air Force quarterbacks have nine touchdown passes and five interceptions this season. Geraud Sanders and Benjamin Waters have combined for 932 receiving yards and nine touchdowns while Kade Waguespack has five receptions. The Air Force Falcons ground game is averaging 313.5 yards per contest, and Kadin Remsberg leads the way with 778 yards and seven touchdowns. Defensively, Air Force is allowing 20.9 points and 320.6 yards per game. Demonte Meeks leads the Air Force Falcons with 73 tackles, Mosese Fifita has 4.5 sacks and Milton Bugg III has three interceptions.
The New Mexico Lobos need a win here to snap a seven-game losing streak. The New Mexico Lobos have split their last four home games. Tevaka Tuioti is completing 53.8 percent of his passes for 1,425 yards, seven touchdowns and six interceptions. Sheriron Jones and Tuioti have combined for nine touchdowns and 13 interceptions this season. Jordan Kress and Marcus Williams have combined for 898 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Anselem Umeh has 19 receptions. The New Mexico Lobos ground game is averaging 191.9 yards per contest, and Ahmari Davis leads the way with 832 yards and seven touchdowns. Defensively, New Mexico is allowing 36.4 points and 492 yards per game. Alex Hart leads the New Mexico Lobos with 71 tackles, Jacobi Hearn has six sacks and Jerrick Reed II has one interception.
The Falcons are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 conference games, 4-10 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Lobos are 2-10 ATS in their last 12 home games, 5-16 ATS in their last 21 conference games and 7-20 ATS in their last 27 games overall. The Falcons are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 meetings and the underdog is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The under is 6-1 in Lobos last 7 games overall. The over is 38-18 in Falcons last 56 conference games.
The Air Force Falcons are 6-3 ATS in their last nine games as a double-digit favorite. The New Mexico Lobos are 1-5 ATS in their last six games as a double-digit underdog. The Air Force Falcons are riding high during this impressive winning streak and can win double-digit games for the third time since 2000 if they close out the season with two more wins. The New Mexico Lobos continue to have one of the worst defenses in college football, and now the offense has scored 10 or less points in three of their last four games. I simply want nothing to do with the New Mexico Lobos in their current form. It's Air Force in a blowout or pass.
