FAU is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 17-6 ATS in their last 23 Saturday games. The under is 6-2 in FAU’s last 8 neutral site games. San Diego State is 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games and 15-5-2 ATS in their last 22 games. The under is 19-7 in San Diego State’s last 26 games. 


These two teams shocked most of the country by winning their regions and they will face off on Saturday night for a chance to play in the National Championship game. FAU dominated the glass on Kansas State and was able to generate plenty of second chance points. San Diego State beat Alabama in the Sweet Sixteen and was able to get by Creighton in the Elite Eight by one point. San Diego State comes into this game as a slight favorite and plays some of the best defense in the country, but FAU is the better shooting team and is averaging more rebounds per game. I think this game could go either way, so I am going to take FAU with the points here.
