Randy’s Free Pick
It’s tough to get behind the Cal State-Northridge Matadors, a team that doesn’t win or cover numbers and appears to be getting worse. Cal State-Northridge is losing its last 5 games by an average of 8.8 points. Hawaii looks to prove it’s the top team in the conference and cant let games like this slip away. I’ll lay the chalk.
