Fresno State @ San Jose State
Our Selection : The San Jose State has played well for the most part this season but they have struggled versus QB’s that can run. Case in point was last week’s game against the Wolf Pack where they could not contain QB Cody Fajardo who picked up 104 yards on 14 carries. This week they face a more dangerous runner in Navy’s QB Keenan Reynolds who leads his team in rushing with 884 yards this season and it’s not all about Reynolds. The Midshipmen are 5th in the nation with 311 yards per game on the ground and will face the Spartan’s 99th ranked run defense.
We do expected a spirited effort by San Jose State, but Navy is the superior team here. The points are a gift.
Take the Navy Midshipmen +2 at 5Dimes and get reduced juice on every play.
