Score: 70 - 55
Point Spread: -11/-115 New Mexico State
Yesterday the Tennessee State Tigers were blown out by a very bad Hawaii team. They were crushed by 30 points to open the season, and now have to face a talented New Mexico State team that will be playing with a chip on their shoulder after getting beat by Western Michigan by six points. The Aggies definitely have the motivation factor in their corner for this game.
New Mexico State returns two of its top four scores from last season, which includes leading scorer Daniel Mullings at guard and 7' 5" center Sim Bhullar. Bhullar is a matchup nightmare for Tennessee State and should have a very big game. The Tigers are without three of their top four scorers from last season, which includes both of their top rebounders. This is a very young, inexperienced team that will struggle down the stretch.
The Tigers are 0-4 ATS in their last four non-conference games. With the Aggies coming into this game as the more experienced team, the more motivated team, and simply the better team I don't think the Tigers have much of a chance at keeping this game close. Lay the points on New Mexico State because this game has blowout written all over it.
