PAT’S THOUGHTS:

UCLA is in a complete rebuild mode, and is in a bad spot here. Fresno is good.  They blew a 4th quarter lead that still leaves me stinging a bit last week, but they are good.  The line is telling you that Fresno is the play here.  Line went form pk to Fresno -1.5 while Fresno is getting 32% of the bets but 63% of the money.  That is classic reverse line movement if I ever saw it.  I’m not backing Fresno as I worry about their ability to score.  You know the Chipper will find ways to score.  However, all indicators are telling you to back FSU.
