3* SMASH on New Mexico State +9

Nothing better than taking an underdog in an in-state rivalry game. You know the Aggies are going to have a chance to pull the upset here, they won by nine last year when the Lobos were favored by 12 at home. If you think that means New Mexico will get their revenge, they already did with a 20 point win later in the season. Instead what you find is a lot of value going against a team that has won their first 10 games of the season. Don't sleep on NM State as they have gone under the radar in covering four straight, their only loss in the past month has come by a single point at UTEP. Why is nine points too many? Because both points will be at a premium today. Both teams are allowing under 63 points per game while neither is wearing the nets out. When you get two slower paced teams that play good defense it's tough to win by double digits. Don't count on New Mexico doing that today so take the points.
