The New Mexico Lobos and Colorado State Rams meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the Moby Arena.
The New Mexico Lobos look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 11 games. The New Mexico Lobos are averaging 80.6 points on 49.8 percent shooting and allowing 72.3 points on 43.2 percent shooting. JaQuan Lyle is averaging 17.4 points and 4.1 rebounds while Carlton Bragg is averaging 12.6 points and 10.3 rebounds. Corey Manigault is the third double-digit scorer and Makuach Maluach is grabbing 3.4 rebounds. The New Mexico Lobos are shooting 32.9 percent from beyond the arc and 72.4 percent from the free throw line. The New Mexico Lobos are allowing 32.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.4 rebounds per game. The New Mexico Lobos have split their first four road games.
The Colorado State Rams look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The Colorado State Rams are averaging 73.1 points on 46 percent shooting and allowing 70.6 points on 43.4 percent shooting. Isaiah Stevens is averaging 12.7 points and 2.9 rebounds while Nico Carvacho is averaging 12.6 points and 10.7 rebounds. David Roddy is the third double-digit scorer and Adam Thistlewood is grabbing 3.7 rebounds. The Colorado State Rams are shooting 32.9 percent from beyond the arc and 66.5 percent from the free throw line. The Colorado State Rams are allowing 33.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.8 rebounds per game. The Colorado State Rams have won four of their last six home games.
The Lobos are 58-27-3 ATS in their last 88 Wednesday games, 21-44 ATS in their last 65 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Rams are 6-13-1 ATS in their last 20 Wednesday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games. The over is 19-7 in Lobos last 26 road games. The over is 16-7 in Rams last 23 Wednesday games.
The New Mexico Lobos have probably been the better team overall, but they've run into issues on the road this season and the Moby Arena isn't an easy place to play. The Colorado State Rams bump their shooting percentage to 47.2 percent at home and win by an average of 7.2 points. The home team has won six of the last nine meetings between New Mexico and Colorado State. I'll lay the bucket because of home court advantage.
