2014 Las Vegas Season Win Total: 3.5*
2014 Season Win Total Picks NCAA Football: 'Under'
The Aggies come to the Sun Belt conference with enthusiasm but that is pretty much it. Last year they had a brutal schedule and I was shocked to see the Aggies even get two wins. This year they are breaking in a new quarterback and their defense has some major holes to fill. The only bright spot I see for New Mexico State is that their schedule is not as tough as last year's.
The offense showed some signs of life towards the end of the 2013 season but this group is young. Luckily the offensive line has experience and thanks to the scheduling gods for scheduling Cal Poly as the first game. The D-Line should be improved and if their rushing defense improves that should help the 'D' stay off the field.
The Aggies have an oddly different schedule in 2014 then last year, beginning with a favorable opening game. The road games are difficult but if the offense can click early enough the Aggies can win some in this conference. The Aggies close out the season with three out of four game at home and those games will determine if the total season win total goes either 'Over' or "Under'.
I think that 3.5 could be a bit high. But I'm looking for a much-improved Aggie squad. The Aggies are building for the future. But what I have read the future might be quicker than planned. I see three wins for the Aggies but it wouldn't shock me to see them get to four. They are not close to winning the conference this year or next. But they are building something nice in Las Cruces.
