The Toreros are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games vs. a team with a wining straight up record, however, are just 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Bulldogs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games.
San Diego comes into this game losing 3 of their last 4 games and have struggled on the offensive end as the Toreros come into this game ranked just 222nd in scoring offense, 156th in FG%, & 238th in 3P-FG%. Fresno State struggled against California, however, this is still a team that had a very impressive win against Santa Clara and has been led by their defense that ranks 37th in scoring defense & 85th in turnover margin. Fresno State is a tough team to play when they are at home and as I think San Diego is going to struggle on the offensive end in this one, I think Fresno State does enough offensively to cover this mid-range spread. Good Luck!
