New Mexico State vs. Bowling Green Expert Betting Predictions

Middle Tennessee State is a decent team but, at least on paper, this is a huge mismatch. San Diego State hung with teams like Air Force and Fresno State.

The Blue Raiders lost to teams like Louisiana Tech, UAB, and Texas San-Antonio. Again, those are decent football teams, but they wouldn’t be able to go toe-to-toe with a solid club like Fresno State the way SDSU did.

The real problem the Blue Raiders have is moving the football against the best defense they will face this season. San Diego State held a team like Toledo to 14 points.

Unless the Aztecs show up unprepared, they should have this in the bag. SDSU is the pick to win and cover.
