San Diego State
The Aztecs are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 road games. San Diego State is 5-2 ATS in its last seven Saturday games.
The Falcons are 1-6 ATS in their last seven Saturday games. The underdog is 10-4 ATS in the last 14 meetings.
The Aztecs have a great shot at finishing the regular season undefeated and Air Force does not have a great shot at keeping it competitive. Air Force is pretty decent offensively, but one of the worst defensive teams in the country. With SDSU ranked eighth nationally in adjusted offensive efficiency, look for the hosts to take advantage of the leaky defense and dominate its way to an easy victory.
