Cooper Legas QB vs. Dylan Hopkins QB


Utah State’s quarterback Cooper Legas has been an invaluable component to their offense. Boasting an impressive 64.8% completion rate and having amassed 1815 yards through 64 passes with 19 touchdowns against 8 interceptions for an efficiency rating of 158.3; Legas has made sharp, accurate throws while reading defensive formations easily to make sharp, accurate throws; however his susceptibility to sacks – having been taken down 20 times- is cause for concern.


Dylan Hopkins of New Mexico may lag in completion percentage (57.8%) and passer rating (130.3), but has still amassed 1949 passing yards with 11 touchdowns despite falling short in both measures. Hopkins stands out by favoring longer throws than Legas; evident in his 7.8 average yards per pass attempt figure. Nevertheless, his resilience under pressure should be recognized, yet 9 interceptions indicate there is room for improvement when making decisions under pressure.

Utah State Aggies Betting Trends


Utah State’s betting trends are uneven. While they have posted four straight victories against the spread in their last six games, signaling an improvement, their road game performance has been less encouraging; going 2-7-1 against the spread in 9 away games since 2010. Bettors should also note that seven of Utah State’s last 10 games went over, but 5 of their 6 road contests against New Mexico fell under totals.


New Mexico Lobos Betting Trends


New Mexico’s betting trends suggest caution. They have only covered the spread consistently five out of the last eight games (at 5-13 against the spread), though 6 of their 8 contests saw total scores go over in an indication of high-scoring affairs; home games saw total scores go under five out of six times against Utah State.


Utah State Aggies vs. New Mexico Lobos 11/24/23 Betting Picks


As game day nears, analysis and betting trends suggest an unpredictable encounter. Utah State’s superior offensive firepower led by Legas and Booth makes them favorites to cover the spread, yet New Mexico could surprise with its home performance and historical under trend in this fixture – I recommend taking a cautious approach, favoring Utah State to win but not discounting a resilient performance by New Mexico.


For those looking for premium spread picks, the over/under offers an intriguing choice. Given both teams’ recent scoring trends, betting on the over seems tempting. However, historical trends at University Stadium between these two suggest a lower-scoring affair, potentially making the under a more prudent choice.
