The Tigers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following a ATS win. The Toreros are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Tigers last 5 road games. The under is 10-4 in Toreros last 14 home games. The road team is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings.

I'm not running to the window to back either of these teams, but the San Diego Toreros have been in far worse shape this season, which includes losing at home by an average of 13.7 points while shooting 38.7 percent from the field. It's hard to get behind those numbers. Pacific isn't a great team in its own right, but backing San Diego simply isn't an option. I'll lay the bucket.
