The team has been struggling after a 14-game losing streak, including a recent 30-point loss to the Nevada Wolf Pack on February 17.

New Mexico Lobos vs. San José State Spartans. The NCAAB Pick for this outing is the New Mexico Lobos. In their previous matchup on January 28, the Lobos convincingly defeated the Spartans by a score of 86-70. On Sunday, as they take to the road once again, New Mexico is poised to repeat that victory and secure their third road win of the season. The Lobos boast a potent offense that averages an impressive 76.2 points per game on a 44.5% field goal percentage, and San José State’s defense, which has allowed an average of 73.4 points per game, is ill-equipped to stifle the Lobos’ scoring prowess. As such, it is predicted that the New Mexico Lobos will emerge victorious once again, with a final score of 80-71.
