Free Week 9 NCAA Football Pick
Utah State handles their business at home against New Mexico.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: New Mexico +20.5
Utah State has been hot at home covering the spread in their last 5 contests, but New Mexico has been some road warriors this year going 3-1 ATS while they have also gone 4-2 ATS in their last 6 against Utah State.
Something also to consider is Utah State has been on a solid winning streak that includes road wins in BYU and now they are coming off of a big win in Wyoming with a possible look-ahead game in Hawaii.
I expect New Mexico to catch Utah State slipping and keep the score within the number.
