Free Spread Prediction: Cal State Fullerton Titans -9

One key reason that we feel good about taking the Bakersfield Roadrunners to cover the spread as +9 point underdogs at away, is the fact that they will come into the game looking to control the pace of the game. This season, the Roadrunners have made a habit of limiting Possessions and slowing the game down. This strategy should help them keep the game closer than expected against a Cal State Fullerton that is looking to get out and run. Although Bakersfield doesn’t have a great track record vs the spread as the underdog, we like the fact that they are playing at away and present a bit of mismatch for the heavily favored Titans.
