The New Mexico Lobos are set to host the Fresno State Bulldogs

Bulldogs hitting their stride

The Bulldogs have continued their push toward a bid for the NCAA tournament behind a strong season. This has seen them continue to stay on that path over the last five games earning four wins over that span with their only loss coming by one point in an 82-81 defeat to Utah State It has been a collective offensive effort that saw has seen them push forward sitting in third overall spot in the Mountain West Conference standings 1.5 games behind for the best record. The Bulldogs are coming off a thrilling 65-63 win inching past the Boise State Broncos that saw senior guard Braxton Huggins lead the way with a game-high 26 points with four 3-pointers made.

Huggins has picked it up over the last four games with more than 20 points scored and multiple made 3-pointers in each contest over that stretch. He has been the head of the snake offensively averaging a team-best 19.0 points per contest. Meanwhile, Nate Grimes has been a huge secondary factor as he poured in a double-double with 13 points and 15 rebounds, which marked his third double-double in the last four games played. Fresno State has found much success behind these two upperclassmen leading the way that should stay on that path against New Mexico on Saturday night.

Lobos hoping to build on recent surge

The Lobos has struggled to find consistency on the court over the course of the season currently sitting 5.5 games back in the Mountain West standings. New Mexico has had some forward progress in the last couple of weeks having won four out of their last five contests that have brought some momentum toward them possibly making a bid for the NCAA tournament with a strong run late in the season and upcoming conference tournament. However, it has come with them working their way out of a deep hole prior to that point.

Much of this has come from their offense stepping it up a notch scoring more than 80 points in each of the last five games with their lone loss over the stretch coming in a 98-94 defeat to New Mexico State. The Lobos have been led offensively by senior guard Anthony Mathis averaging a team-best 15.4 points. Mathis has scored more than 15 points four times over this recent span of games. If New Mexico hopes to stay on the same track, it will need them to maintain their offensive uptick in production to keep up with Fresno State on Saturday night.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Although New Mexico has picked it up as of late, Fresno State has shown continued consistency throughout the year. The strong play of Huggins should guide them to another crucial win on the road in their push to make a bid for the NCAA tournament. It should be noted that the Bulldogs are 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings against the Lobos.

Prediction: Fresno State
