Weber State is 7-16 ATS in their last 23 games overall and 2-6 ATS in their last eight Thursday games. The Wildcats are also 2-10 ATS in their last 12 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last four games following a straight-up win.
Meanwhile, the Bulldogs are 17-5 ATS in their last 22 home games and 20-6 ATS in the last 26 games following a straight-up win. Fresno is also 9-3 ATS in their last 12 non-conference games and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games overall.
Weber State rolled in their last game, outscoring BLA 58-35 in the first and 47-17 in the second half. The Wildcats have no issues destroying sub-par competition, but tend to wilt when the going gets a little tougher. I’d also like to see some more dominance on the boards and a little more passing from Weber. As for Fresno, they’ve been pretty reliable overall this year (aside from a stinker against Evansville) and have a nice balance of scoring among their top guys. I like the Bulldogs to cover here.
