We are releasing this College Football pick at no charge (regular price: $10) as a way of showcasing our premium service to the general betting public. We keep our VERY best analysis for premium clients, but this will hopefully serve as a good indication of the type of work our handicappers do on a daily basis.
Fresno State have disappointed on the road in recent weeks, losing at Louisiana Tech and then being outmuscled, unsurprisingly, at Boise State on the smurf-turf. This represents a far easier opportunity for a road win, as Fresno State is superior to Rice in every department of the game.
Rice come into this game with a porous run defense, and although they have won all three home games this season (and lost all five road games) they have not faced a team of Fresno State's calibre at home. Their wins have all come against minnows, and Rice will struggle here against a team that they have not beaten in the last 4 years. The Owls just cannot stop the better teams in the WAC and we expect Fresno State to take advantage of this and cover in the process.
