Gotta be honest. I don’t like a whole lot on the board today. But there’s one game in particular I absolutely love — and the good part is, you’ve got time to bet it.
The game is the semis of the Mountain West Tournament — San Jose State (20-12) vs. San Diego State (25-6) at 9:30 p.m. ET.
San Jose State is playing some of its best basketball, with Thursday night’s win over what we thought was NCAA-bound Nevada. No. 1 seed San Diego State, on the flip side, played a horrendous first-round game, getting lucky to beat Colorado State.
Stare all you want at 25-6, but you aren’t betting moneyline. You are betting spread. San Diego State is one of the most successful teams but have a horrible record against the spread this season (13-17). Among teams that have won at least 80 percent of its games, only two are worse ATS — Virginia (11-17) and Purdue (13-18).
Meanwhile, San Jose State has covered the spread in 17 of its last 23.
