We really thought that San Jose State was the right team on the road last week against Minnesota, but the team just didn’t end up posting the numbers that it needed to in order to win the game. That’s okay for us though, as that opens up another opportunity to bet on a team that we think is vastly underrated. The Spartans are just 1-2 SU and 2-1 ATS this season, and QB David Fales and his mates definitely could still be upset picks in the Mountain West this year. Remember that the Spartans have only hosted one reasonable game this season against Sacramento State, and aside from that have been a pair of road games against teams that are going to be in bowl games this year.
QB Chuckie Keeton is the big time name in this game, and the hope for him is that he is going to have a great game on national television in what is nearly a standalone game to have a chance to contend for the Heisman Trophy. Yes, he has 14 TDs against just one pick on the year, and yes, he tore this team apart last year for 273 yards and three TDs. However, Fales threw for 467 yards and three TDs in that game. The Spartans are going to have to figure out how to keep the Aggies out of the backfield, as Fales had -98 rushing yards in the game thanks to all of the times that he was sacked. We still think that this is an opportunity to take a whole boatload of points on our side for a team that could pull off the outright upset.
