College Football Betting Trends
San Jose State
The Spartans are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven conference games and 5-1 ATS in their last six games following a loss.
The Lobos are just 1-6 against the spread in their last seven conference games and 1-4 ATS in their last five road games.
San Jose State has won three of the last four in this series and covered the spread in four straight encounters. The matchup looks good for San Jose State tonight. New Mexico is a mess against the pass and the Spartans are putting up 285 yards per game through the air. That should open the door for a lot of big plays in the pass game tonight. New Mexico has a capable offense, but not one that is able to make up for its defense. I don’t see the Lobos being able to keep pace with the Spartans tonight.
