10:30 PM EST. For the Spartans of San Jose State, it looks terrible on paper. They are 3-14 overall and 0-6 in conference play, but we are not in the business of breaking down X's and O's. Instead, we're on the lookout for undervalued teams in good situations and SJSU fits the bill. Although the Spartans are winless in the Mountain West, they have challenged a pair of conference foes after going to overtime with UNLV and getting out to a double-digit lead over Colorado but both games ended in a loss.
Nevada is the class of the Mountain West after winning both the regular season and conference tournament in 2017. There is no doubt they have the talent to cover this number, but you are going to pay an inflated price to back one of the premium mid-majors. The Wolf Pack have dominated the Spartans over the years including a 10-year undefeated stretch in San Jose, but this is the largest number this group has been asked to cover in recent memory. Nevada was spotting -6½ last season and now you can add double digits to that this season and start to get an understanding of these inflated points. Lastly, Nevada has second place Boise State on deck and that’s the only team that has a legit chance of catching the Wolf Pack so their collective minds has that one, not this one at the top of their priority list.
