The Fresno State Bulldogs are the better team and should have the edge at home where they win by an average of 10 points, but they’re also a team that’s not covering numbers and have failed to cover their last four games as a favorite. The Southern Utah Thunderbirds just beat an excellent Portland side, and they’re playing some of their best ball of the season right now, which includes shooting nearly 50 percent from the field. I’ll take my chances with the free points.
