According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Spartans are heavy favorites at -24. San Jose State hopes QB Nick Starkel can duplicate his prolific passing despite a new cast of receivers.

The Pick

San Jose State first quarter -7 (-115)

The Spartans aren’t bringing back a ton of production offensively, but they have an experienced quarterback and running back returning. There isn’t going to be a ton of weather concerns, so San Jose State should be able to run its offense well. Don’t expect Southern Utah to get much going against SJSU’s defense on the flip side of things. This is going to be a blowout quickly.
