Why San Jose State can cover
San Jose State has won three of its last four games, pulling off an upset at UNLV as a 6.5-point underdog on Tuesday night behind a 19-point performance from junior forward Trey Anderson. He knocked down 6 of 9 shots from the floor, including 5 of 7 from 3-point range. The Spartans beat Utah State as 6-point underdogs last Saturday, so they have been undervalued in the betting market.
In fact, they have covered the spread at a 13-4 clip in their last 17 games. New Mexico has been trending in the opposite direction, losing four straight games and failing to cover in five straight outings. The Lobos have only covered once in their last seven trips to San Jose State, and they are expected to be without second-leading scorer Jaelen House (hamstring).
