Randy’s Free Pick

The Cal State-Bakersfield Roadrunners are a bad team that’s getting worse, and that includes losing their last 5 games by an average of 15 points. The UC Davis Aggies at east win in the favorite role by an average of 6.2 points, and they’re above average offensively. UC Davis can’t afford to blow games like this. I’ll lay the chalk.
