San Jose State vs San Diego State Betting Prediction

San Jose State comes into this game sitting in last place in the Mountain West standings and they have only won two conference games all season. The Spartans aren’t horrible on offense, but they are allowing 75 points against per game on defense. San Diego State is 10-5 in conference play and they are only a half game out of first place. The Aztecs have struggled on the road this season, but they are undefeated at home. San Diego State only won by three points in the first meeting between these teams and this is a huge spread to cover. I don’t have a great feeling about either side in this game, but I am going to take the points with the Spartans.
