The Fresno State Bulldogs will look to build on a 65-50 win over Wyoming in their last outing.

The Colorado State Rams will look to add to their current four-game winning streak after a 78-65 win over Air Force last time out. Kris Martin led the Rams with 19 points on 4 of 7 from behind the arc along with a 7 of 8 mark from the foul line while Kendle Moore and David Roddy each had 13 points with Roddy adding a team-high 5 assists while Moore shot 5 of 9 with a pair of threes.

Fresno State is 14-6-1 ATS in their last 21 road games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a win. Colorado State is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a win while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 home games. The favorite is 10-3 ATS in the last 13 meetings between these two teams.

The Bulldogs and points are always tempting, but a win over a bad Wyoming team isn’t going to move the needle for me much on this Fresno State team as I feel like the Bulldogs are overrated this season. Colorado State is on a bit of a nice run right now and are winning games in convincing fashion with each of the wins coming by double-digits. I’ll lay the points with the Rams in this one.
