We head to the Mountain West Tournament as the Fresno State Bulldogs come into the event on a 5-0 SU roll and as the defending tourney champions. They take on New Mexico in their opening game.

New Mexico vs. Fresno State

Fresno State is a very physical team, and it has found success lately by turning it up on the defensive side of the ball. The Bulldogs have cashed six 'unders' in a row, yet the betting markets really haven’t adjusted to their new trend of play. They’ve also won 5 straight coming into this game, which makes me think the team is buying in on the clamp down defense.

New Mexico, on the other hand, comes into this game on a 10-2 'under' run because its offense is struggling. The Lobos' second-leading scorer, Tim Williams, has missed extended time in the last month and a half, but did come back for their last game. While he and his 17.5 points per game is getting the rust off, I still like New Mexico to be very deliberate on offense in getting him involved.

NCAAB Free Pick: 'Under' 143
