New Mexico Bowl Prediction - Marshall Vs Colorado State Football Odds

NCAA New Mexico Bowl Odds and Prediction

When: Saturday, December 16, 4:30 p.m. ET (ESPN)

Where: Dreamstyle Stadium, Albuquerque, NM

Who: Marshall Thundering Herd vs. Colorado State Rams

There's going to be a point that Mike Bobo is either going to get Colorado State back to the top of the Mountain West and ultimately use that as a platform for a Power Five job, or he'll end up becoming an offensive coordinator again soon. The Rams haven't done anything wrong, per se, but at some point, more than 7-5 is expected out of this club.

This year's team has definitely put some yardage up. Dalyn Dawkins was one of the top running backs in the MWC with 1,349 yards and eight touchdowns while Michael Gallup is one of the top receivers in the nation with 94 catches, 1,350 yards and seven scores.

The Rams haven't covered a spread since October 7, going 0-6 ATS since that point. They also lost four of their last five games SU, including a bad 45-28 loss at home against Air Force.

Doc Holliday came into this season on a bit of a toasty seat for the Thundering Herd off of a 3-9 season. He was given a pass after three 10+ win seasons in a row and was given the chance to get Marshall back to a bowl game. Holliday succeeded, leading this team to a 7-5 record, but one has to wonder what could have been in so many games.

The Thundering Herd were beaten three times in the last four games of the year, and those losses were by a combined eight points.

Don't think this team can play ball? The Herd hung in there against N.C. State in Raleigh better than a lot of ACC teams did, and they whooped up on Cincinnati by 17 points at Nippert Stadium in September.

New Mexico Bowl Prediction - Marshall Thundering Herd vs. Colorado State Rams

Opening Line: Colorado State -5.5

Preview: The Marshall Thundering Herd have had a rich history in bowl games. They've rarely played against the big boys, but they won't have to this year either in the New Mexico Bowl against the Colorado State Rams. Continue...

New Mexico Bowl Betting Tips
