Race To 40 Points, San Jose State +375

Throughout the course of the entire game, it’s hard to believe that Eastern Michigan can drop at least 40 points.

San Jose State has a dynamic defense that’s ranked inside the top 20 in the nation for a reason. Even if they don’t score first, the Spartans aren’t going to remain a turnstile for the remainder of the matchup.

At the same time, San Jose might be able to get close to the 40-point barrier. Eastern Michigan is allowing 28.1 points per game and 355 yards per contest. Those numbers might line up very well for a San Jose squad that loves to air it out.

Overall, Eastern Michigan hasn’t been able to consistently stop its opponents and San Jose State presents a very difficult challenge. It’s a long shot, but it might be a great value bet to think they’ll hit 40.

  • Pick: San Jose State +375

A Team Score 3 Unanswered Times? No +190

Simply put, neither of these teams are going to lack in scoring. They are both averaging over 27 points per game offensively. They have great rushing and passing offenses that are used to getting the job done.

San Jose State might have an above-average defense, but seeing both teams stay off the board for an entire quarter seems hard to believe.

That means if you bet online, expect this to be a really back-and-forth affair. Neither team will run away with it, which is why taking “No” on this three consecutive scores props makes a lot of sense.

  • Pick: No +190
