According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Colorado State is favored on the road, as the Rams are getting odds of -7.5 points against New Mexico. The over/under total is listed at 60 points. Colorado State has won seven straight in this series and the two have hit the over in three of their last four encounters. The public is currently putting 82 percent of the wagers on Colorado State on the road. Friday’s game takes place from Dreamstyle Stadium in Albuquerque, New Mexico and will air live on ESPN2.

Colorado State is riding a three-game winning streak to improve to 5-2 on the season and 3-0 in the Mountain West. The Rams are 4-3 with the over, hitting it in three of their last four games. Colorado State has a great offense that is producing 34.9 points and 520.7 yards per game right now. Nick Stevens has thrown for 2,255 yards and 18 touchdowns to lead this offense while Michael Gallup has 59 catches for 948 yards and five touchdowns. Dalyn Dawkins is adding 684 rushing yards with four touchdowns. Defensively, Colorado State is allowing 24.6 points and 415.6 yards per game.

New Mexico is coming off a 38-0 loss at Fresno State to fall to 3-3 on the season and 1-2 in conference play. The Lobos are 5-1 with the under. New Mexico isn’t a great offense, averaging just 25.3 points and 410.8 yards per game. However, the defense is holding opponents to 26.8 points and 375.7 yards per game. Injuries have forced New Mexico to use all three quarterbacks this year. Lamar Jordan has thrown for a team-high 487 yards and three touchdowns. Richard McQuarley is the leading rusher with 321 yards and five scores. He is dealing with a wrist injury that has him questionable for the game.

Bet on Colorado State vs. New Mexico

The Rams are trending with the over, as they are 5-1 with it in their last six conference games and 5-2 with it in its last seven on the road. Colorado State has an offense capable of putting up a big number. While New Mexico has the better defense, I don’t see it stopping the Rams enough. The Lobos should be able to add in some scores on this CSU defense as well. New Mexico has managed to hit the over in 20 of its last 28 home games.
