Air Force vs Fresno State Prediction & Pick

Fresno State has looked anything but impressive during its three-game skid. The Bulldogs' offense has been terrible all season (60.9 PPG, No. 352), but things have gotten worse as they've been held to a 55.3 PPG clip in those losses. It doesn't help that they average the sixth-fewest offensive possessions per game in the country.

Air Force is far from perfect, but it has still scored 75-plus points in two of its last three games — both efforts resulting in victories. The Falcons are also more accurate from the field (46.7%, No. 47) than the Bulldogs (41.9%, No. 297) and have been shooting 42.9% from three-point range over their last three games.

Considering that Air Force was victorious against Fresno State just over a month ago, it's clear that the Falcons have what it takes to win again.

Final Score Prediction: Air Force: 65 | Fresno State: 60

Air Force vs Fresno State Best Bet

I have Air Force covering the 2.5-point spread as my best bet tonight. Despite their occasional struggles, the Falcons are still 13-7 ATS over their last 20 games and have covered the spread in 10 of their 17 home games thus far. Meanwhile, Fresno State is just 2-5 ATS against MWC opponents on the road this season.

With the Falcons covering the spread in 12 of its last 17 meetings with the Bulldogs, Air Force is in a good position to cover, once again.

Bet: Air Force -2.5 (-110)
