San Jose State vs San Diego State Prediction  

San Diego State should have little issue putting it on a struggling San Jose State team this Tuesday, but they were really dealt a daunting margin here as home favorites. I wouldn’t completely shy away from the massive victory, but if the Aztecs shut the Spartans down, the Under has a good chance to clear. A one-sided battle may y the scoreboard, and that’s what I’d lean on when approaching this matchup.
