San Jose State vs. Colorado State Prediction

I’m on Colorado State here. This is a big number and the Rams weren’t the best at covering these big spreads down the stretch, but this is more of a fade of San Jose State more than anything else. The Spartans played the top-half of the Mountain West in their final five games with 4 losses by 18+ points. I think the Rams with a fully focused effort here have the potential to do the same. Give me Colorado State.
