College Football Betting Trends
New Mexico has hit the over in six of its last eight road games and in 11 of its last 16 overall.
San Jose State
The Spartans have hit the under in five straight games on fieldturf and in five of its last six overall.
These two haven’t met in a few years and have split the over/under in their last two meetings. The total is being set high, as oddsmakers expect the poor defenses to stand out most. New Mexico had a 107-point battle with New Mexico State a few weeks ago and also gave up 66 to Notre Dame this year. San Jose State hasn’t put up or given up the same numbers, but still are steady at scoring while giving up points. I would expect a lot of fireworks in this one as the defenses just can’t seem to get on track.
