College Basketball Betting Trends
The Bulldogs are 12-5-1 ATS in their last 18 road games. Fresno State is 3-7-1 ATS in its last 11 games overall.
San Diego State
The Aztecs are 1-4 ATS in their last five home games. The home team is 1-7 ATS in the last eight meetings.
The Aztecs have mostly benefited from a weak schedule but have also sprinkled in impressive wins over the likes of BYU, Creighton and Iowa. The Aztecs are very strong on the defensive end and is facing a Fresno State squad that is no better than average offensively while also not being overwhelming defensively. While San Diego State lost by meetings by close scores last year, that should be a driving force for the Aztecs tonight.
