2021 New Mexico Lobos Football Betting Predictions

June 28, 2021

2021 New Mexico Lobos Betting Odds, Predictions, Preview

After last year’s disappointing 2-5 season New Mexico will look to bounce back and get back in bowl game contention. One of New Mexico’s biggest offseason decisions will be who starters at quarterback. With Terry Wilson coming in from Kentucky he would likely bring experience and grit to a team that needs a leader. Tevaka Tuioti started last year and has been impressive when he’s been able to stay on the field, a lingering concussion will limit him in preseason practice. New Mexico will also have to address the lack of forced turnovers on the other side of the ball along with addressing their cornerbacks who struggled in coverage last season.

My preseason best bet is New Mexico over 4 wins -159. While I do think they reach at least 4 wins this is far from a must bet considering the odds. The Lobos do have a tough schedule but there are enough layups along the way for them to cover this number. I think they probably beat Houston Baptist, UNLV, Colorado State, and New Mexico State at minimum.

Preseason Best Bet: Over 4 Wins -159

New Mexico Odds to win 2021 Mountain West Championship

Yes +20000

While I definitely think New Mexico improves and could even get themselves into bowl game contention this is a bit of a stretch. I could see them face some tough demoralizing losses against teams like Texas A&M after getting off to a hot start. They also have the challenge of facing San Diego State, Wyoming, Boise State, and Texas A&M all on the road. That’s an incredibly cruel decision from the schedule makers and the Obos are gonna have to fight through it all season long. Overall not interested in this number despite the nice odds.

Mountain West Conference Betting Odds

New Mexico Odds to Win 2021-22 College Football Playoff

Yes +500000

New Mexico would have to beat both Texas A&M and Boise State for this to be a reality and that’s probably not happening. A solid 6-6 season with a bowl game appearance would be great for New Mexico and should be their goal this season. No interest in this number despite the humongous +500000 odds.
