Louisiana Tech has a chance to win 10 games for the first time since moving up to the Division I level in 1989, but it will need to bounce back from a disappointing 48-41 overtime loss to the Utah State Aggies as three-point home underdogs. “It’s a lot of disappointment and a lot of anger,” commented Bulldogs wide receiver D.J. Banks. “We were so close.” The Bulldogs enter this week with a 10-game road winning streak, while leading the nation in averaging 52.3 points per game. Louisiana Tech is 7-2 ATS as an underdog of 3.5 to 10 points over the last two-plus seasons, which is important to consider when making your college football picks against the spread in Week 13.
The Bulldogs have had 15 different players score a touchdown this season, as the offense is led by quarterback Coby Cameron, who leads the WAC in total offense with an average of 351 yards per game. Louisiana Tech ranks 120th nationally in allowing 518.5 yards per game, including 338 yards per game through the air.
San Jose State enters its regular-season finale on a season-best five-game win streak, coming away with a 20-14 win over the BYU Cougars as three-point home underdogs, but losing the statistical battle for the first time in four contests. The Spartans will be focused on winning 10 games for the first time since the 1987 campaign, which is shocking when you consider it posted an 8-28 mark over the previous three campaigns. San Jose State is 6-2 ATS as a favorite this season, with the OVER going 5-2 in that situation.
The Spartans are bowl eligible for the first time since 2008, which was made possible by becoming the first team in school history to win a road game in four different U.S. time zones. San Jose State quarterback David Fales is the most accurate passer among the nation’s top-100 ranked signal-callers in games played through Nov. 17. For the first time since 1991, the team has four games in a season with at least 500 yards of total offense.
Sports bettors will likely back the Spartans due to their 6-0 ATS mark in November, while the Bulldogs are 0-4 ATS versus conference foes.
