Randy’s Free Pick
The Long Beach State Beach should have the edge at home, but this is a subpar team at best that only wins by an average of 3.3 points in the favorite role. The Cal State-Fullerton Titans have not only had more success this season, but only loses in the underdog role by an average of 2.6 points. Give me the road dog, as this feels like a close game.
