San Diego State is 1-4-1 against the spread in their last six home games, 2-8-1 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread, and 5-2-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record. Colorado State is 17-35-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record, 2-7 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, and 1-5 against the spread in their last six games. The favorite has covered the point spread in the last four meetings of these two.
The spread here looks to be too large as is usually the case in San Diego State’s games so I will take the points with CSU.
