The New Mexico Lobos have fallen on tough times under Bob Davie. The former Notre Dame head coach enters his 8th year in Albuquerque. He started off strong, but has since had to deal with budget cuts, low recruiting rankings and attrition of top assistance, not to mention Davie himself was suspended for 30 days this offseason due to a criminal investigation involving the football program. He is having to replace both his offensive and defensive coordinators in a last gasp effort to hold on to his job in 2019.

Event: College Football Reg Season Wins – New Mexico Lobos
Sport/League: CFB
Play: Total under 4.5 (-130) Available at Bet Online

New Mexico enters the season on a 0-6 run to end the 2018 campaign, the losses averaging by more than 25 points per game. If that was not enough of a red flag, the Lobos were outgained -276 yards per game in the back half of the season. These metrics point towards a team that quit and when placing bets on a season win total under 4.5, a team that has already proved “quitting” is an option is a prime candidate to repeat the past poor efforts. The top offensive skill position player Marcus Hayes (1st-team Mt West) transferred out. The offensive line losing (2nd-team MT West) Aaron Jenkins. Plus, the defensive line which let up over 215 yards per game on the ground losses Codey Baker who had 17 tackles for loss.

The Lobos do start off with a FCS opponent before heading to South Bend to take on Notre Dame. Unfortunately, the FCS opponent is a top 25 FCS ranked Sam Houston St. After Notre Dame, the prime spot for the Lobos to rack up wins is in the middle of their schedule, but they are terrible travel spots, @Liberty (In Virginia) then the very next week @San Jose St on the other side of the country. After October 11th, it gets real bleak to find wins vs. stiffer Mountain West competition, where the Lobos were outgained by -180 in conference play last year. I strongly recommend an under bet on the New Mexico Lobos in likely Bob Davie’s final year as a FBS head coach.

With a athletic and financial background, Drew Martin and sports betting were the perfect marriage. After being a standout two-sport athlete in high school, Martin hung up the cleats and decided to focus his attention on a college education. His school of choice was Auburn and he quickly earned a degree is Business Finance and parlayed that into a full-time gig at JP Morgan. During his tenure at the investment banking behemouth, Martin spent his nights handicapping and betting on sports and after steadily building his bankroll, felt it was time to move on the next chapter of his life, full-time sports bettor and handicapper.In 2014, Martin joined the Sportsmemo team as the Customer Service Director and a handicapper. His financial background, love of numbers, and firm grasp of what it takes to be a successful sports bettor puts him in a great position for future success."My focus to sports betting has always been to find a balance between being proactive maintaining a simple fundamental approach. The understanding of teams in paramount but more important is having the ability to spot their even-changing value before the betting markets catch on. Every sport, every season, there are plenty of teams that under- and overachieve based on market expecations. Spot a few of them and couple that with a solid, every day handicapping approach, and all of a sudden you're sitting on some real profits."
