3* NCAAB SMASH on San Jose State +4.5
San Jose State is improved, which I believe is evident by how competitive it has been in its first two games. It lost them both but by only 4 and 2 points, respectively. Playing two tough games right out of the gate should benefit the Spartans as they go up against a Weber State team that has only participated in a laugher - a 58-point win against Arizona Christian.

It is significant that the Wildcats held their first opponent to just 26.5% from the field because they are 0-6 ATS all-time under coach Rahe in road games after a game where they held an opponent to 33% or worse from the field. They have lost by an average score of 69.7 to 64.0 in this situation.

The Wildcats are 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a win and 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 non-conference games.

These two teams have met each of the past two seasons with San Jose State covering in both. Last season, the 15-point underdog Spartans played the Wildcats to a 2-point game on the road. The year before, the 1-point underdog Spartans defeated the Wildcats 62-46 at home. Take the points.
