San Diego State
San Diego State has hit the under in five of its last seven conference games and in four of its last five games following a loss.
Fresno State has hit the under in nine straight games in November and in 19 of their last 26 conference games.
The total being set at 42 points seems low, but these teams have hit the under in five straight meetings as and the two have been under 40 points in their last four encounters. The Aztecs don’t have much to offer on offense right now, especially in the pass game. Fresno can stack the box and slow down the SDSU run game to limit possessions and time. Fresno State has the more explosive offense, but not enough to put up about 35 points on the Aztecs.
