Will update with trends once they're released.
The Fresno State Bulldogs just aren't a team I'm running to the window to bet, especially on the road where they shoot just 39.3 percent from the field and 29 percent from deep. The UNLV Rebels have lost four straight, but they play their best ball at home where they win by an average of 8.1 points and shoot 46.3 percent from the field. The UNLV Rebels are also 9-5 ATS at home. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the UNLV Rebels at home.
