New Mexico is the heavy favorite as they finished the regular season with a 35-15 overall record, and 25-5 in league play. The Lobos are also the only team ranked out of the Mountain West as they are No. 16 in Baseball America's top 25, however the USBWA and USA Today have the Lobos in the others receiving vote category.

UNLV earned the second seed and was the only other Mountain West team to have a winning league record by finishing at 18-12, and they are followed by San Diego State who finished with a 15-15 record.
