The fourth-ranked San Diego State Aztecs (+1200 to win the national title) are six wins away from finishing undefeated in the regular season. They can cut that magic number down to five if they can add the Air Force Falcons to their list of victims this Saturday in Colorado Springs. The Falcons are looking to shock the world, and this is their best chance to do just that.

Betting on the San Diego State Aztecs (23-0 Overall / 12-0 Conference)
The Aztecs…well, they are still unbeaten up to this point of the season. Malachi Flynn and company continue to fly high after scoring their 23rd win in a row to start the season last Saturday over the Utah State Aggies at home, 80-68. Matt Mitchell powered San Diego State’s offense with 28 points on 9-of-14 shooting from the field, including a 4-of-6 line from deep. FJ Feagin and Flynn, meanwhile, each chipped in 15 points for the Aztecs, who hit 14 3-pointers, easily negating Utah State’s nine triples. San Diego State doesn’t have too many holes in its game for a team like Air Force to exploit. They are 11th in the nation in offensive efficiency and eighth in defensive efficiency. They are scoring 74.5 points per game on 46.8 field goal percentage and keeps opponents down to only an average of 58.1 points per contest.
The Aztecs are 2-0 against the spread (ATS) in their last two games overall.
Betting on the Air Force Falcons (9-14 Overall / 3-8 Conference)
The Falcons’ struggles continue. They are now on a five-game losing streak following an 88-54 thrashing at the hands of the Nevada Wolf Pack on the road last Tuesday. The Falcons tried to bomb their way out of a big hole by jacking up 28 3-point attempts, but unfortunately made just seven. However, don’t expect Air Force to stop going bonkers on taking long-range shots, as this is one of the few things the team could say as one of their strengths despite what they’ve shown in the loss to the Wolf Pack. The Falcons are 44th in the nation with 8.7 3-pointers per game on 37.2 percent shooting from deep, which is 26th overall. The Falcons also have the ability to draw plenty of fouls, as their opponents are getting called for those 19.5 times per game — 46th nationally. If the Falcons could put at least a couple of San Diego State key players in foul trouble early, they should have a better chance of at least covering the spread.
The Falcons are 3-2 ATS in their last five home games.
San Diego State wins, 81-64.
