Why Bet On The San Jose State Spartans lat +29?
Why should you consider betting on San Jose State in this contest? Well…to be honest about it, there’s only one good reason and that’s the fact that they’re getting a whopping 29 points in this conference clash.

Why Bet On The Nevada Wolfpack at -29?
Why should you consider betting on the 10th-ranked Wolf Pack? Well, Nevada has far more talent than San Jose State and they’re playing at home where they’ve gone 14-1 this season. Another great reason to back the Wolf Pack is because they’re coming off a stunning 85-58 loss to New Mexico on Saturday.
