New Mexico Lobos vs Nevada Wolf Pack prediction

You can make a case for either New Mexico or Nevada as they're both solid SU and ATS. The New Mexico Lobos also waxed Nevada a couple of weeks ago 89-55. New Mexico is 16-7 ATS on the season and Neavda is 15-8 ATS. I do expect Nevada to put a better foot forward at the Lawlor Events Center where they're 12-1 SU on the year. I'd need more points to consider the Lobos on the road. I'll lay the bucket with Nevada.
