Bet The San Diego State Aztecs at -1.5 Because…
The Aztecs are riding a 9 game winning streak and won their first outright conference title for the first time since 1986!
The Aztecs (10-3 SU, 7-5-1 1ATS) are on fire, having won nine straight games coming into this contest including their nard-fought 27-24 win over Air Force on Dec. 5.
San Diego State has averaged a solid 31.4 points this season and have committed just a dozen turnovers on the season.
Quarterback Maxwell Smith has completed a modest 55.0 percent of his passes with 13 touchdowns and just two interceptions. Gifted running back Donne Pumphrey leads the Aztecs’ rushing attack with a stellar 1,554, yards and 16 touchdowns while adding 27 catches and three more scores.
More importantly, the Aztecs have one of the very best defenses in the country as they limit their opponents to just 17.2 points per game, good for 10th in the nation.
Bet The Cincinnati Bearcats at +1.5 Because…
This season will be the program’s lowest victory total since 2010, but a bowl win will close the season out on a positive note.
Cincinnati (7-5 SU, 6-6 ATS) flip-flopped SU wins and losses over their last five games but managed to get past East Carolina 19-16 in their regular season final to gain a tad of momentum coming into this contest.
The Bearcats have a fairly explosive offense that averages a stellar 36.1 points per game (24th) behind quarterback Gunner Kiel’s 19 touchdown passes and 65.2 percent completion rate. Defensively, Cincinnati allows a whopping 30.2 points (88th) 414.7 yards per game.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
San Diego State has gone a near-perfect 8-1 ATS in their last nine games and a robust 6-1 ATS in their last seven games following an SU win. Cincinnati has gone 0-3-1 ATS over their last four games in the month of December and a woeful 1-7 ATS in their last eight non-conference games.
With the Bearcats also going 2-6 ATS in their last eight bowl games, I say San Diego State is the easy pick!
