San Jose State @ Stanford
Current Records: San Jose State 1-0; Stanford 1-1
What to Know
The Stanford Cardinal will take on the San Jose State Spartans at 11 p.m. ET on Monday at Maples Pavilion. Stanford is the favorite here -- although they were the favorites in their last game, too, so the odds might count for a little less.
The contest between the Cardinal and the Santa Clara Broncos this past Friday was not a total blowout, but with Stanford falling 88-72 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one. A silver lining for Stanford was the play of forward Maxime Raynaud, who posted a double-double on 16 points and ten boards. Raynaud's performance made up for a slower matchup against the Tarleton State Texans last week.
Meanwhile, things were close when SJSU and the Cal State Fullerton Titans clashed last Thursday, but SJSU ultimately edged out the opposition 78-76.
This next game looks promising for Stanford, who are favored by a full 18.5 points. They may be expected to win, but bettors beware: they are 0-2 against the spread when favored.
The Cardinal are now 1-1 while the Spartans sit at 1-0. A pair of last-season defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Stanford has allowed their opponents to shoot 50.50% from the floor on average, which is the 12th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. SJSU has allowed their opponents to shoot 52.90% from the floor on average, which is the 350th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. The good news? The teams might be seeing more of their shots fall.
