Radford is 7-19-1 ATS in their last 27 games following an ATS win and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 neutral site games. San Jose State is 20-8 ATS in their last 28 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 neutral site games while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall.
I’m sticking with the Spartans here. I think that San Jose State having a day between games will really help here and the Spartans ended up as one of the better cover teams in the country this season. Radford is a solid team, but I just don’t know if the Highlanders have enough in the tank to hang for a full 40 minutes. Give me San Jose State here.
