Fresno State faces New Mexico on Tuesday, January 25th, 2022 at The Pit for a college basketball Mountain West matchup. 

Fresno State is coming off a 77-73 loss to Nevada in its last game on the road on January 21st. Fresno State was a 2-point underdog in that game, therefore the Bulldogs did not cover the spread. Fresno State's three-game win streak was snapped with the loss and now the team is 13-5 overall, 3-2 in Mountain West play, and 12-5-0 against the spread. Fresno State will be playing in its second straight road game and the Bulldogs are currently 1-2 in conference road games. Fresno State's leading scorer and leader overall is F Orlando Robinson, who currently leads the team in points per game (19.7) and rebounds per game (8.9). G Isaiah Hill leads the team in assists per game with 2.9. Fresno State as a team has scored 67.0 points per game and has shot the ball at a 44.4% clip from the field. Fresno State has also allowed 57.6 points per game to its opponents. 

New Mexico is coming off a 93-91 loss to Wyoming in one of the higher scoring games of the season on January 22nd. The game did not go into overtime despite both teams scoring in the 90s, and New Mexico has now suffered its sixth straight loss to open Mountain West play at 0-6. New Mexico is 7-12 overall this season and has been a cover machine just as Fresno State has, posting a 12-5-1 against the spread record. New Mexico's leading scorer so far this season has been G Jamal Mashburn Jr, who has scored 17.9 points per game for the Lobos. G Javonte Johnson leads the team in rebounds per game (4.8) and G Jaelen House leads the team in assists per game (4.8). New Mexico as a team has scored 77.6 points per game and has shot the ball at a 43.9% clip from the field. New Mexico has also allowed 78.8 points per game to its opponents.

Fresno State is a 5-point favorite and the total is set at 139. I do not see a way that New Mexico's defense holds up here against Robinson and company. New Mexico's offense has been flashy, but not many teams have had a ton of success against this staunch Fresno State defense. I think Fresno State rolls here, even at The Pit, which is never an easy place to play in conference competition.
