Betting on the UTSA Roadrunners (-3)
Record: 12-1 Overall / 7-1 Conference
The Roadrunners are legit. They are the kind of team opponents can’t underestimate, given the body of work UTSA has put up this season. This team has lost just once and even had wins against the Illinois Fighting Illini, Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders, Memphis Tigers, UTEP Miners, and UAB Blazers — the last three of which are bowl eligible squads. The Roadrunners have an offense that is ranked 12th in the nation with 37.8 points per game average. Their defense isn’t too shabby either, as UTSA is second in the FBS in turnover margin per game (1.08). The last time they were on the field, the Roadrunners ran over the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers, 49-41, to win the Conference-USA title.
UTSA is 6-1 against the spread in its last seven games after allowing fewer than 100 rushing yards in their previous contest.
Betting on the San Diego State Aztecs (+3)
Record: 11-2 Overall / 7-1 Conference
San Diego State must be aching to get back on the field. That’s after the Aztecs lost to the Utah State Aggies in the Mountain West conference title game, 46-13. However, that loss shouldn’t make people forget about the otherwise amazing season the Aztecs are having. San Diego State started the season like a house on fire, with seven wins in a row. That includes victories over the Arizona Wildcats, Utah Aggies, New Mexico Lobos, and San Jose State Spartans. Then, more recently, the Aztecs also defeated the Boise State Broncos before getting downed by Utah State. San Diego State boasts of a defense that is 17th in the nation with just 19.5 points allowed per game and second overall with only 79.54 rushing yards surrendered per contest. That’s crucial because UTSA relies a lot on its rushing attack.
San Diego State is 5-1-1 against the spread in its last seven games after a loss.
San Diego State wins, 27-24.
