The Air Force Falcons (10-16, 4-10 CONF) and the Fresno State Bulldogs (9-17, 5-10 CONF) will meet on Wednesday, February 19th for a Mountain West conference matchup at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, CA. The game will be played at 10:00 PM eastern time. 

Air Force is coming off a much-needed 95-86 home win over San Jose State in their last game. That victory snapped a seven-game losing streak for Air Force, as their last win before that was on Jan 15th. Fresno State is coming off a 71-59 home loss to Utah State in their last game. Fresno State has lost three of its last five games overall.

Air Force is 10-15 ATS this season and 2-8 ATS in their last ten games. Air Force is also 4-6 ATS on the road so far this season. Fresno State is 9-15-1 ATS this season and 3-7 ATS in their last ten games. Fresno State is also 2-8-1 ATS at home so far this season. In the first meeting between these two teams this season, Fresno State won 79-68 at Air Force. 

Both of these teams have struggled on defense recently, and there is no way I can lay that many points with a Fresno State team that has not been impressive. I cannot take Air Force on the road either, so I will side with the over 144.5 in this one, as I see both of these teams eclipsing 75 points.
