The Fresno State Bulldogs will be out to build on their 69-56 season opener victory over the Fresno Pacific subdivision last time around. Isaih Moore led the Bulldogs with 19 points on 7-of-13 shooting with 10 rebounds for the double-double, while Anthony Holland added 13 points with 5 rebounds and Donavan Yap added 12 points with 5 assists to cap the trio of double-digit scorers. for Fresno State in the win.

UC-Santa Barbara is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games on Friday and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games on neutral sites, while under is 37-15 in their last 52 games on neutral sites.

I understand the reasoning for supporting either side here, but I’m looking at the gauchos here. I just think it will be a battle between two teams that have a solid defense, but the difference in this game is that the gauchos have the most reliable attack and I like the direction the UCSB attack is taking. I think Fresno State will be fine, but Fresno State needed their defense to win a good number of games last year and I don’t think they will have that luxury against UCSB. Give me the gauchos.
