San Diego is 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 home games.
I get the reasoning for backing San Diego at home, but the problem I have is that Utah State’s done much better with their results against the tougher schedule here. No disrespect to San Diego State but the Aggies have rolled through their first three games no problem and I think they make it four. I just like the build of this Aggies team and think they’re primed to do some damage this season. Give me the Aggies on the road.
