The 6-2 San Jose State Spartans opened as heavy favorites against 1-7 Idaho.
The San Jose Spartans have won six of their last seven games and are heavy favorites to make it seven of eight on Saturday.
San Jose opened as a 16.5-point favorite against Idaho, according to Odds Shark.com. Since opening, the line has moved even further in the Spartans' direction as San Jose State is now as high as a 19.5-point favorite. Only twice this season has San Jose State opened as a bigger favorite than the 16.5 points it did this week.
Both teams have identical records straight up and against the spread. San Jose State is 6-2 against the spread this season, while the Vandals have covered just one of eight games. Idaho is 0-3 against the spread on the road this season.
Despite the fact San Jose State is averaging nearly 33 points per game this season, the total for Saturday's game opened at 55 points. That is largely due to an anemic Idaho offense that is averaging just 16 points per game this season.
Betting the over may be the best way to go as eight of the two teams' last 12 combined games have gone over.
