The under is 4-1 in Spartans last 5 games overall.
The Western Michigan Broncos haven't looked good at all on defense, and those issues usually don't fix themselves on the road. The San Jose State Spartans have played their best ball at home over the years, and they do have a top-60 passing offense that could give the Broncos defense some issues. Not a game I'm running to the window to bet, but I'd lay the touchdown with San Jose State if forced to pick. Western Michigan and its defensive concerns are a fade in my eyes, especially on the road.
