Liberty edges out New Mexico St. on the road.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: New Mexico St. +4.5
This is a talented Liberty squad filled with upper classmen, which is one of the reasons they are favored on the road in a cross-country game, but be weary as they might have just stayed in New Mexico the past week, which could have sluggish effects on them.
New Mexico St. has been dreadful for the most part, and even though they just picked up their first win, their offense has been pretty bad.
Liberty just proved they can win on the road, and I like them to repeat this week against New Mexico St., but I expect this one to be a close one, so I’ll take the points.
