Free Point Train Pick

Saturday #211 New Mexico State +31.5 @ Washington State 10:00 PM Eastern

If you’ve dealt with us in the past you know we prefer ‘ugly’ teams over the media darlings. With that said, we like New Mexico State plus the points over Washington State. Last season the Cougars were 11-2 ATS and have a two-year record of 18-8 ATS at the betting window. That success doesn’t go un-noticed by the oddsmakers so there is an immediate correction in the opening numbers this season. Conversely, the Aggies were a dismal 2-9-1 ATS last season and cost anyone that bet them on a regular basis a lot of money last season. WSU had the best spread record in college football last year, but fifteen teams had a better average margin of victory than the Cougs. Washington State had a decent average margin of victory of +14.2PPG last year, but it came against the 50th ranked schedule.

Washington State had just two wins last year that were by more than the spread on their opener this season. New Mexico State struggled last season with a 2-9-1 spread record, but their average loss margin was 16.1PPG and they only lost by 34 or more points three times. New Mexico State returns 30 letter winners with 8 starters on offense back and 6 defensive starters. Two years ago, this team was 7-6 SU with a Bowl Win to end their season. The Aggies had a negative point differential of just -.4PPG and an offense that was 45th in the nation in yards per play at +5.7, while averaging 29.3PPG. With experience back at quarterback, a solid O-line along with plenty of depth defensively this Doug Martin coached team will be much better than they were a season ago. Washington State does return a bevy of talent from last year’s team with 39 lettermen, 7 offensive starters and 6 defensive starters but they are clearly over-priced here. Our computer analytics on this game have the Cougars favored by 26.9-points. We take the pooch and the points! Bet on New Mexico State!

2018 Best ATS teams in college football: Washington State 11-2, Utah State 10-3, Florida International 10-3, Syracuse 9-3-1, Troy 9-3-1, Fresno State 10-4, UAB 10-4

Friday NCAA Preview WSU vs. USC

Washington State at USC

Friday, Sep. 21 – preview courtesy of Point Train

Friday Night the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum will play host to Friday night football for the first time since the start of the new millennium as the upstart Cougars of Washington State travel into town to face a dejected USC Trojans squad looking to get back on track.

Washington State will open conference play Friday night in the City of Angels at 7:30pm local time as they look to take down the Trojans of the University of Southern California. Mike Leach’s Cougars have started off the year strong, 3-0 entering a tough road test in week four. In order for the Cougars to return to Pullman with a double U they will need a plethora of things to go their way. For starters, East Carolina transfer quarterback Gardner Minshew will have to play well on the road. Minshew has played well in the first three weeks, passing for 1203 yards, as well as eight touchdowns compared to only three interceptions. Minshew, coupled with a lethal wide receiving core featuring Davontavean Martin who already has 290 yards receiving and three touchdowns, can cause major problems for a battered and bruised USC secondary.

USC plays it’s second Pac-12 conference game of the season this Friday night as they play host the Washington State. The Men of Troy have not started out the season very well to say the least. Struggling offensively with true freshman quarterback JT Daniels, the Trojans have failed to break 20 points in two of their first three games to start the season. Clay Helton’s squad hopes to get back to their winning ways of week one and in order to accomplish this feat the Trojans will need better play from Daniels as well as everyone else really. Pac-12 conference football is a different animal than your week one non-conference UNLV, and the Trojans need to step it up this Friday or they will find them in a tough 0-2 hole in the Pac-12 South. It’s gut check time whether the Trojans like it or not, and they better figure something out quick.
