    There’s a reason all of the Lobos are priced so low. Vegas’ implied final score of 44-6 doesn’t even give New Mexico a single garbage-time touchdown. This offense isn’t talented enough to hang with a competent SEC team, even if that team is as much of a Wildcard as Texas A&M.

    Consider stacking Aggies in your lineup if you’re even slightly bullish on Bobby Petrino as offensive coordinator. Weigman didn’t put up eye-popping numbers as a freshman, but he won the job and faces an easy Week 1 matchup.

    The wide receiver pricing is a bit off, as Muhammad should be Weigman’s favorite option this year and has a high touchdown upside. Smith will contribute in several ways and could have a few big plays, but he won’t get the target numbers Muhammad will get. Each is a strong candidate for your lineup, but lean towards Muhammad if you can only start one.

    Daniels and Moss are strong options, as the Aggies should keep it on the ground quite a bit as they start to pull away. If they get a long touchdown run at the beginning, it should be enough to pad stats en route to a 250+ yard game.

    Prediction for Texas A&M vs. New Mexico

    Aside from the potential of a power struggle between new offensive coordinator Bobby Petrino and Jimbo Fisher, this one has Texas A&M blowout written all over it.

    The Lobos were hapless on offense last year, finishing dead last in FBS in yards per play (3.5) and points per game (10.5). Even against the spread, the Lobos struggled, going 3-8-1, finishing the year on an 0-7 ATS losing streak. They attempted to upgrade this year, but A&M’s defense should be solid this year.

    On the other side, the Aggies should have a jolt from Petrino and should be greatly improved. Expect Smith, Muhammad, and Daniels to have huge games en route to a strong offensive day that may get the fan base’s hopes up.

    Weigman should have a nice, though maybe not flashy, game, and the Aggies will put up points, even if the Lobos get a few stops. The A&M defense should find itself at the top of a lot of Week 1 leaderboards in what could be a shutout.

    The under is the stronger play here as it’s likelier that A&M doesn’t reach 38 than it is that the Lobos score more than a few points. Lean A&M to cover, especially if you can find 37.5 floating around, but feel better about the under.

    Prediction: Texas A&M 41, New Mexico 0
