Free NCAAF Pick:

New Mexico Lobos +31.5

LSU has scored 39.7 points a game compared to 27.3 per for New Mexico. The Tigers hold a big edge in total offense per game as well, averaging 438 yards a game to the Lobos’ 286.3. New Mexico’s defense has played well, allowing just 263 yards a game, while LSU’s is allowing 314.3 yards on average. The Lobos will have their hands full trying to contain Daniels, and we expect the Arizona State transfer to have a big game. That said, -29 is a big number that maybe be too big to cover. Final Score Prediction: LSU wins but doesn’t cover 46-23.
