Clemson vs. New Mexico Prediction and Odds 


The Clemson Tigers are well-built, but they’re coming off a stunning 76-55 loss in the ACC Tournament as a No. 6 seed to the No. 11 seeded Boston College. The team has three scorers with double-digit points, including big man PJ Hall, who averages 18.8 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks per game. They also have Joseph Girard, who scores 15.7 points per game on average, and Chase Hunter, who scores 12.3.

The team's best rebounder is Ian Schieffelin, who averages 9.5 rebounds per game while scoring 9.6. The six-foot-eight forward has scored double-digit points in three of his last five games. 

KenPom rates Clemson as the No. 34 team overall. The Tigers score 117.4 points per 100 possessions while allowing 100.5 points per 100 possessions. 

The Tigers are 17-14-1 against the spread this season and 6-4 when coming off a loss. Notably, on the rest of the 4+ days, they’re 7-2 against the number.

As a unit, Clemson averages 77.4 points (57th) and 36.4 rebounds (98th) per game. They shoot 46.8% from the floor (49th) and 35.4% from beyond the arch (outside the top 100). 

Defensively, they’re about average, allowing over 70 per game and teams do shoot 34% from three-point range, which is at the 190th spot in that statistic. 

New Mexico

Coming into the Mountain West Conference tournament as a No. 6 seed, few say what New Mexico would accomplish. They beat No. 11 Air Force, No. 3 Boise State, No. 7 Colorado State, and No. 5 San Diego State en route to a MWC title. 

This team has plenty of excellent scorers, including Jaelen House, Jamal Mashburn Jr., Donovan Dent, and JT Toppin—all of them average at least 12 points per game.

House leads the team with 16.1 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 2.3 steals per game. He has also played quality defense, having been named a two-time Mountain West Conference All-Defense member. 

Rated as the No. 23 overall team per KenPom, New Mexico holds teams to under 97 points scored per 100 possessions while racking up 115.4 points per 100 possessions. 

This is a team that rebounds well with nearly 40 per game (16th), scores at a high rate with 81.6 per game (17th), and defends the three well, holding teams to 30.6% (24th). 

Coming off wins, New Mexico is 16-8 against the spread this season. 

Clemson vs. New Mexico Pick

Of all the Round of 64 matchups, this is bound to be one of the better ones. New Mexico is somehow a No. 11 seed after winning the Mountain West. 

Some may argue that they exerted all their energy to overcome the odds and win the tournament, but this is a tough draw for Clemson. 

Yes, they have players who can score in PJ Hall and Joseph Girard, but they need to content themselves with the Lobos' four-headed scoring threat, who also have an excellent defender in House. 

The Lobos are favored by 2.5 points, so to be safe, we’ll take the moneyline on this one.

Take the Lobos at -126 at FanDuel Sportsbook right now. New players can bet $5 on this game, and if it wins, they'll receive $200 in bonus bets on top of their winnings
