The Bulldogs are 7-15-1 ATS in their last 23 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games. The Falcons are 7-19 ATS in their last 26 vs. Mountain West and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Bulldogs are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
Air Force is a team that's dropping quickly in the standings, as the Falcons aren't winning or even coming close to covering as of late. I'm not high on Fresno State either, but the Bulldogs have a much better chance of covering in this contest.
