Why Air Force Will Win

The Falcons open up their season Sunday with a winnable game against a Sun Belt opponent in Texas State. According to KenPom, Air Force is a home favorite in each of its first four games. Texas State lost a decent chunk of its nucleus from last year’s 22-win team, including leading scorer Kavin Gilder-Tilbury. The Bobcats were just one victory away from the NCAA Tournament last season, but the Academy should feed off of a Veteran’s Day weekend crowd and win the regular season opener. Texas State likes to slow down the pace, which feeds nicely into Air Force head coach Dave Pilipovich’s offensive philosophy.

Air Force -3, o/u: 135
