Jake Haener has thrown for 1,186 yards, 9 touchdowns and 4 interceptions on 66.9% passing while Ronnie Rivers leads the Bulldogs with 439 rushing yards and 7 touchdowns.

San Jose State is 15-5-2 ATS in their last 22 conference games, 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 road games against a team with a winning home record and 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a win. Fresno State is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 24-9 in their last 33 conference games. San Jose State is 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings between these two teams at Fresno State.
The idea of Fresno State as a home dog is tempting given their 3-1 record, but those three wins came against Colorado State, Utah State and UNLV, arguably the three worst teams in the Mountain West this season. San Jose State’s schedule isn’t worlds better, but the Spartans do have a win over a really good San Diego State team on the road and this line has already swung multiple points in San Jose State’s direction. It doesn’t seem to matter who the Spartans have at QB, as this team has just gotten back to winning and remembering how good it feels and aas weird as this feels to say, I’m not stepping in front of San Jose State right now. I’ll lay the points with the Spartans on the road here.
