Aside from a few hiccups here and there, San Diego has looked pretty good in this first part of the season. As for Pacific, they’ve had to scrape and claw out their two wins since December 30, but they get credit for getting the Ws. This is something of a tough one to call, but I think Pacific is a scrappy team who could get in there and cover. I’m taking the Tigers.
