The Rebels are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 Friday games and 20-43-4 ATS in their last 67 road games. The Bulldogs are 5-13 ATS in their last 18 Friday games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
The Fresno State Bulldogs have allowed 45 or more points in four of their last five games. Needless to say, there's going to be a lot of scoring in this game from both sides. In fact, last year's meeting produced a combined 57 points. I like the over here.
