College Football Betting Trends
The Falcons have hit the over in six of their last seven road games and in four of their last five Friday games.
San Diego State
The Aztecs have hit the under ins ix of their last eight conference games and in five of their last seven at home.
These two have narrowly hit the over in their last two games, playing right near the mark. San Diego State should be able to dictate the pace of this game, as the Aztecs defense can cause a lot of problems for Air Force and the SDSU offense will likely play ball control and grind out some scoring drives. Each team should have limited possessions in this game and not all will be successful. Despite the low total, I will go with the under in this one.
College Football Prediction: Air Force/San Diego State Under 45.5
