San Jose State in Northern Colorado tips and predictions


Northern Colorado 74, San Jose State 67

money line

Northern Colorado (-210) is costing you more than twice your potential return, and that’s just too expensive in a game that should be pretty tight late into the second half.


against the spread

NORTHERN COLORADO -4.5 (-115) is worth playing even though it costs 0-3 ATS so far. It sure doesn’t look good, but 2 of the non-covers were against Baylor and Houston, 2 clearly superior teams.

San Jose State +4.5 (-105) comes from a home loss to Hofstra and has not covered in the last 2 games either. This is also San Jose State’s first away game of the season and it remains to be seen how they will handle their first real adversity in a hostile environment.

over under

BELOW 144.5 (-115) is the slight incline, but play it very gently.

The Under has cashed in 2 out of 3 games overall for San Jose State. NorCo has had an over-hit in 2 of 3 games, and the defense has allowed 77 or more points in all of their games. However, don’t expect the Spartans, who have averaged 74.8 PPG so far, to be anywhere near as successful.
