The Spartans are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Bulldogs are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 5-1 in Spartans last 6 games overall. The Spartans are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 meetings in Fresno State and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.

The San Jose State Spartans are off to the better start and have better results, but their offense is still hit or miss, and they have a limited rushing attack. The Fresno State Bulldogs haven’t had success through 5 games, but they’ve had a brutal schedule that included 3 straight road games and two games against PAC-12 competition, while also playing Boise State. Fresno State will be at home for the first time in over a month, and you’d think that would help. I guess I’m still haunted by San Jose State and its struggles over the years, so it takes time for me to really believe. Not my favorite game on the card, but give me the free touchdown.
