The CSU Fullerton Titans have won each of the last seven meetings, including when these teams met last month and they dropped 82 points comfortably. The CSU Fullerton Titans don't play their best on the road and are just 9-17 against the spread on the season, but you have to like the history being on the side of the underdog. The CSU Northridge Matadors are hit and miss more times than not, and they're just 4-6 against the spread at home this season. The CSU Northridge Matadors also have defensive issues as of late. I want the points here.
