Point Spread: -3/-110 New Mexico
On Saturday the Mountain West Blowout Side is on New Mexico. Game 597 at 6:00 eastern. The Lobos are quietly ranked 2nd in the latest RPI Poll. They are a small favorite here against Air Force and have covered 8 of 9 here WINNING The last 5 By 10 Or more. Air Force has had a nice season. However I cant back a team that has last lost 9 of 12 vs top 50 teams when they are facing an opponent that is 18-1 vs any team ranked higher than 50 in the RPI Scale. Look for New Mexico to emerge with another win and Cover here tonight.
On Saturday the Pac 12 Power Play is on USC. Game 605 at 6:30 eastern. Both of these teams have had sub par years. However Washington St is laying points here and is ranked 186 in the RPI, Compared to 93rd for USC. The Cougars may be flat off their best win of the year, they knocked off UCLA last out after losing 15 straight here against them. That still leaves them at 1-16 vs top 100 ranked teams. USC is a solid 3-1 vs teams ranked from 150 to 200. Look for USC To spring the minor upset as a 2-3 point dog.
