LINE: Auburn -5.5, o/u: 146
POINT TOTAL PICK: Over
Three pointers three pointers three pointers three pointers three pointers.
Yes, all you care about is your investment and getting it back dressed up in a bow, but sometimes, you want to have fun with your pick. This is one of those times when it will be worth it just so you can be a part of what this could and should be.
New Mexico State is eighth in the nation at taking threes, and Auburn is third. Auburn averages close to 80 points per game, and New Mexico State averages 78. And best of all, the Tigers are mediocre at guarding the three.
Of course, there’s always the chance that one of the teams goes cold and the threes aren’t dropping, but … Auburn leads the nation in the most three pointers made per game. New Mexico State is 24th.
146 isn’t that bad a number for two high-powered offenses – you need one side to get to 80. The Aggies hit that mark in seven of their last ten games, and got to 75 to 79 three times. Auburn got there in three of its last five games.
Don’t expect any slow and go in this one, and watch it rain.
