San Jose State shot 49.2% from the field and was -8 in rebounding margin in the win.

San Jose State is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 neutral site games. The over is 6-1 in San Jose State’s last 7 neutral site games. San Diego State is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Friday games and 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 games. The under is 6-0 in San Diego State’s last 6 games. 


San Diego State comes into this game with the best record in the Mountain West, but they barely beat Colorado State on Thursday. San Jose State has won four games in a row and they have held three straight opponents to fewer than 62 points. San Diego State has had quite a few close calls this year and I think this San Jose State team could give them trouble. I think we see a very low scoring game here, but I like San Jose State with the points. 

David’s Pick San Jose State +8.5
