McNeese State Cowboys
It has been a pretty rough year for this McNeese State team in 2021. I have a very hard time seeing them turn it around.
The Cowboys last played on December 8th, where they lost to the LA-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns by a score of 83-68. Things will not get any easier for them when hit the road and play UTEP.
I would understand their poor record if they were constantly playing teams that were powerhouses, but that has not been the case. They are letting the average teams look excellent when they play against them.
Sometimes it is not easy to pinpoint why a team is struggling. For me, it is not that hard to figure out with this team. Compared to the other squads they play, they just do not have the talent that stacks up. That is never a formula for winning.
UTEP has been a hard team to figure out this year. I have liked the way they have played at times, but at other times, I have not been that impressed.
The Miners currently have a record of 5-4. After the final whistle blows on Thursday, there is no excuse why their record should not be 6-4.
This program beat the New Mexico Lobs on Sunday by a score of 77-69. It was nothing fancy, but they did just what they had to do in order to get a win.
In the win over the Lobos, the leading scorer was Souley Boum with 26 points. Also, Keonte Kennedy had 22 points and 8 rebounds. Overall, it was a good day for the offense in that game.

Free McNeese State Cowboys vs. UTEP Miners NCAAB Summary:
I look for UTEP to play a complete game in this one. There is really no excuse for them not to.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: UTEP ATS
The Miners cannot mess around here. They are the better team and they need to show it.
As the game gets going, I just do not know how the Cowboys are going to keep up. I think it could be a long day for the road team.
Laying the 15 with UTEP here does not bother me even though it is a high number. I feel like once they get in a groove, they can take control of this and make it uncompetitive.
Give me the Miners laying the points at home in this one.
