Pacific is 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS win and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a loss while the over is 6-0 in their last 6 games overall. North Dakota State is 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400.
I get the case to be made for either side in this game, as both played some tough opposition and covered as sizeable underdogs. That being said, I do like what North Dakota State’s bringing to the table just a little bit more than I do Pacific, and I just think this is a game that the Bison win and cover at the foul line late. Give me the Bison laying the points here.
