New Mexico St. vs. Miami Pick
Can No. 6 Miami pick up another win out in Hawaii when the Hurricanes face New Mexico State tonight at 10PM ET?
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Miami is the favorite in this game, as the Hurricanes are getting odds of -9 points against New Mexico State. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 134.5 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Stan Sheriff Center in Honolulu, Hawaii and will air live on ESPN2.
Miami is coming off a 75-57 win over Hawaii last night to improve to 10-0 on the season. The Hurricanes are also a perfect 5-0 against the spread in their lined games. The Hurricanes are averaging 76.8 points per game on offense while allowing 56.4 on defense. Dewan Huell is averaging 13.6 points and 6.3 rebounds per game to lead Miami while Dejan Vasiljevic is adding 11 points per contest.
New Mexico State is on a four-game winning streak right now, including wins over Illinois and Davidson. The Aggies are 10-2 on the season and 3-0-1 against the spread in four lined games. New Mexico State is averaging 72.7 points per game on offense while allowing 66.8 on defense. Zach Lofton is averaging 18.8 points per game on offense to lead New Mexico State while Jemerrio Jones is adding 10.5 points and 11.1 rebounds per game.
These two have no recent meetings to consider for tonight’s game. Miami has been rolling along so far and I think the Hurricanes will have too much offensive balance and too strong of a defense for the Aggies. New Mexico State is just 3-8 against the spread in their last 11 games following a cover. Look for the Aggies to be overwhelmed quickly. The public betting is slightly with Miami tonight and I agree.
