What to Know

The Fresno State Bulldogs are 9-2 against the San Jose State Spartans since January of 2016, and they'll have a chance to extend that success on Tuesday. The Bulldogs and SJSU will face off in a Mountain West battle at 10 p.m. ET at Save Mart Center. Fresno State won both of their matches against SJSU last season (79-64 and 80-65) and is aiming for the same result this time around.

Fresno State came up short against the Boise State Broncos two weeks ago, falling 65-55. One thing holding Fresno State back was the mediocre play of guard Isaiah Hill, who did not have his best game: he finished with only nine points on 3-for-12 shooting in his 30 minutes on the court.

Meanwhile, the Spartans took their game at home this past Saturday with ease, bagging a 118-43 victory over the Bethesda Flames.

The Bulldogs are the favorite in this one, with an expected 14-point margin of victory. Those burned by picking them against the spread two weeks ago might want to keep in mind that the squad has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.

Fresno State is now 10-4 while SJSU sits at 7-5. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: Fresno State enters the contest with only 10.7 turnovers per game on average, good for 25th best in college basketball. Less enviably, the Spartans are 39th worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 11.3 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked against SJSU.
