The odds in this game show that we have a flipped favorite situation. The Bulldogs opened up as two-point favorites and now they are underdogs. The top-rated college football sportsbooks now have the Bulldogs as 2.5 –point underdogs. This shift in the spread is a strong indication that something is happening in this game.
The line move in this game may have a lot to do with how Fresno looked in their first game. They lost at home to Hawaii and they looked bad on both sides of the football. On offense QB Jake Haener had three turnovers and the defense allowed 34 points and over 500 yards in the loss. The Bulldogs to rebound well after a loss, especially a rout. The Bulldogs are 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 games as a home underdog and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a double-digit loss at home.
Coach Steve Assazio brings back an experienced offense led by quarterback Patrick O’Brien. However, he does have to replace 31 starts missing from the offensive line a season ago. This can spell trouble for O’Brien since he has a tendency to take sacks. The Rams have done well in this series as they have covered five of the last seven games against the spread.
Colorado State vs Fresno State Picks
The Rams have yet to play a game this season but don’t bet against Fresno, because of how they looked against Hawaii. The Rams are not as good in the trenches and will have trouble getting the ground game in gear. The public is piling on the road favorite, but the best bet in this game is the home dog.
