The Fresno State Bulldogs look for another victory to build on their 4-2 start to the season. The Fresno State Bulldogs are averaging 76.6 points on 46.3 percent shooting and allowing 71.2 points on 43.7 percent shooting. Braxton Huggins is averaging 19.3 points and 3.2 rebounds while Deshon Taylor is averaging 17.2 points and 4.8 assists.

The Mustangs are 2-12-2 ATS in their last 16 road games, 14-40-1 ATS in their last 55 Saturday games and 19-45-2 ATS in their last 66 games overall. The Bulldogs are 16-5 ATS in their last 21 non-conference games, 16-5 ATS in their last 21 vs. Big West and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Mustangs are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The over is 8-3 in Mustangs last 11 non-conference games. The over is 4-1 in Bulldogs last 5 overall.

The Cal Poly Mustangs have not only had trouble winning games straight up, but they've also been one of the worst teams in the country ATS over the years. The Fresno State Bulldogs have been the complete opposite, as they're 4-1 ATS this season and have shown a very balanced attack that makes them a sneaky contender in the MWC. Just off trends alone, you have to feel confident in Fresno State winning this game rather easily.

Fresno State Bulldogs -20
