Utah State Aggies vs. Fresno State Bulldogs Predictions

The Utah State Aggies are coming into this game with high spirits after securing their spot back in the AP Top 25 rankings, currently holding the No. 22 position. Their recent victory over San Diego State has propelled them to the top of the Mountain West standings, and they are looking to maintain their momentum against a struggling Fresno State side. The Aggies boast a potent offense, averaging 79.6 points per game, which ranks 56th nationally, and they have been efficient from the field with a 49.4 field goal percentage.

Fresno State, on the other hand, is in a rough patch, having lost their last five games. The Bulldogs will be relying on their top scorer, Isaiah Hill, who is averaging 12.2 points and 6.3 assists per game, to ignite their offense. However, they’ll need to improve their shooting efficiency, as they currently hold a 46.5 field goal percentage, and step up their defense to contain the high-scoring Aggies.

This game will also feature a key player matchup between Utah State’s forward Great Osobor, who has been a dominant force averaging 17.8 points and 9.1 rebounds per game, and Fresno State’s center Enoch Boakye, who leads his team with 8.2 rebounds per game. The outcome of this battle in the paint could very well dictate the flow of the game. With Utah State’s recent form and Fresno State’s home-court advantage at the Save Mart Center, this game is poised to be an intriguing clash of contrasting fortunes.

Utah State Aggies vs. Fresno State Bulldogs Pick

The Utah State Aggies have demonstrated a strong performance throughout the season, especially in their recent games, which justifies the confidence in their moneyline bet. With a win percentage of 81.5% and a 10-4 record in conference play, they have shown consistency and resilience. Their offensive prowess, averaging 79.6 points per game, coupled with a high field goal percentage of 49.4%, makes them a formidable opponent for the struggling Fresno State Bulldogs. The Aggies’ ability to perform under pressure is also notable, as they have managed to secure wins in close games, going 4-0 in games decided by less than 4 points.

On the other hand, Fresno State’s recent form does not inspire confidence for a moneyline bet. Their five-game losing streak and a 40.7% home win percentage suggest that they are currently not at their best. While they do have the home-court advantage, their performance at the Save Mart Center has been inconsistent with a 7-7 record. Additionally, the Bulldogs’ lower scoring average of 68.0 points per game and their lowest scoring output in a Mountain West game in program history indicate that they may struggle to keep up with the Aggies’ offense. Considering these factors, the Utah State Aggies moneyline bet is the more compelling choice for this matchup.
