Breaking Down the San Jose State Spartans Win Total
2020 College Football Season
San Jose State: O/U 4.0 Wins -- Title Odds: +50000
The San Jose State Spartans will be looking to build off the 2019 campaign. San Jose State finished with a record of (5-7) and a (2-6) record in the Mountain West Conference. The offense averaged 30.1 points per contest, which ranked in the top half of the FBS. The defense was not as strong, allowing 31.9 points per game, which was 99th in the FBS. Brent Brennan is the head coach for San Jose State.
The offense was led by quarterback Josh Love. Love passed for 3,923 yards, while throwing 22 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. However, Love was a senior last season and the offense will be looking for a replacement. Nick Nash looks to have the best chance at the quarterback opening. Nash, who was a freshman last season, passed for 133 yards and 2 touchdowns, while completing 12 of 17 passes. Nash also added 255 yards rushing and 3 touchdowns. The receiver duo of Tre Walker and Isaiah Hamilton will be back. Walker who will be a senior hauled in 79 receptions for 1,161 yards and 2 touchdowns. Hamilton snagged 43 receptions for 718 yards and 2 scores.
As a team, the defense totaled 17 sacks and 16 interceptions. The leader in sacks was Jessie Osuna with 3. Osuna was a senior last season. Safety Jay Lenard will be back in the secondary as a senior. Lenard collected 95 tackles, while adding 2 interceptions. Bobby Brown II added 24 tackles and 3 interceptions in a reserve role.
Let us take a look at the San Jose State schedule for the 2020 season.
Sept. 5 at Central Michigan
Sept. 12 UC Davis
Sept. 19 at Penn State
Oct. 3 at Boise State
Oct. 10 Air Force
Oct. 17 UNLV
Oct. 24 at San Diego State
Oct. 31 at New Mexico
Nov. 7 Nevada
Nov. 14 UConn
Nov. 21 Hawaii
Nov. 28 at Fresno State
The non-conference slate features two road games and 2 home games. The two road games are Central Michigan to open the season and Penn State. The home games are UC Davis and UConn. Central Michigan had a nice season in the MAC, finishing first in the West. The Spartans have a tough stretch to open the season, with 3 road games out of their first 4, plus a home game against an 11-2 Air Force team from a season ago.
San Jose State should have wins over: UC Davis, UNLV, and UConn. The projected win total is set at 4. San Jose State should have 3 for sure wins and a 4th win could very well come on the road at New Mexico. New Mexico has not been good and is in rebuild mode, so I’m going to peg San Jose State with a win. This gives San Jose State 4 wins, therefore I’m going to take the over, as an underdog win is possible.
