The Line: San Jose State Spartans +9 -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The road doesn’t get any easier for the San Jose State Spartans, as they will host the hot Wyoming Cowboys on Saturday afternoon.
The Cowboys are fresh off a marquee victory over the San Diego State Aztecs. In the win, the Cowboys shot 57.9 percent from the field and held the Aztecs to 37.9 percent shooting. They have now improved their field goal percentage to 49.1 percent on the season, while the defense holds teams to 60.7 points per game. The problem is that they are only 3-7 SU on the road and score only 58.1 points in road games. They are 14-6-1 ATS and 6-3-1 ATS on the road.

It’s the same song and dance for the Spartans, as they have now lost 12 straight. They shoot only 38.1 percent from the field and average 64.1 points, while the defense allows 72.4 points on 43.7 percent shooting. They haven’t scored more than 67 points during this massive losing streak. At home, they average 61.6 points and allow 67.1 points. They are 9-13 ATS and 3-5 ATS on the road.
Its clear San Jose State has mailed this season in, while Wyoming is a team riding high on confidence and has to believe it has what it takes to sneak into the NCAA Tournament.
The Cowboys are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following an ATS victory.
There’s no reason to back the Spartans, so take Wyoming with pretty high confidence.
