Public Likes Fresno to Roll
This is the finale for both of these clubs as the Fresno State Bulldogs invade Las Cruces to take on the NM State Aggies. Head Coach Pat Hill’s Bulldogs had themselves a bounce back season in ’07 after going (4-8) a season ago and missed out on going bowling for the first time in seven years. That won’t be the case this season, as last weeks win over K-State now has them at (7-4) on the year and a bowl game certainly looks to be on the horizon. The same can’t be said of New Mexico State who had aspirations of going bowling for the first time since 1960 before the season started. They got off to a nice start by winning two of their first three games, but it went all downhill from there. They’ve only been able to muster up two wins since September and because of it will miss out on the post-season festivities once again.
Oddsmakers from Bodog have made Fresno State -13 point spread favorites (View College Football odds) for Friday's game (Game Matchup). Current public betting information shows that 85% of bets for this game have been placed on Fresno State -13 (View College Football bet percentages).
Fresno State has flat out owned the Aggies all time winning all 13 of their previous match-ups. Since NMST joined the WAC, Fresno has posted 37-7 and 23-18 victories. The Aggies had the Bulldogs on the ropes last season in the Silicon Valley, but a number of 4th quarter turnovers led to 17 straight Bulldog points to allow for the come-from-behind victory.
Fresno State has been installed 13-point road favorites in this spot with the ‘Total’ set at 67. Bulldog backers should note, they’re 1-4 ATS their L/5 games as a road favorite and 2-9 ATS their L/11 as favorites of 10.5 or greater. As for the Aggies, they’re a poor 1-4 ATS their L/5 as a dog greater than 10.5-points, but they’ve competed well at home vs. +.500 teams going a perfect 4-0 ATS the L/4 times. As for the ‘Total’, the ‘Over’ is 4-1 ATS the Bulldogs L/5 road games and 4-1 ATS in the Aggies L/5 games as a home underdog.
It’s certainly not the most glamorous game that ESPN2 has broadcasted this season, but it is Friday night football so tune in at 8:00 ET for all the WAC fireworks.
