THE PUBLIC LIKES: As of Sunday morning, 59% of betting tickets are on the Bulldogs and 75% of the money is also on Fresno State.

INJURY REPORT: For Houston, receiver Linell Bonner is probable to play tonight with a shoulder injury and so is running back Dillon Birden (elbow). On the other side, defensive end Nathan Madsen (leg) is out for Fresno State.

WHO WE LIKE: Fresno State. The Bulldogs are 11-1 against the spread in their last 12 games versus an opponent with a winning record. They're also 19-7-1 at the betting window in their last 27 games overall, are 10-1 against the number in their last 11 games after scoring less than 20 points in their previous game, and have cashed in nine of their last 10 games after allowing less than 20 points in their previous game.

On the other side, the Cougars are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games coming off an ATS win. They're also 2-5 against the number in their last seven games versus MWC opponents and are winless at the betting window in their last six games when playing on fieldturf.
