Betting Picks and Prediction
Auburn is a 23.5-point favorite over the Spartans and has a solid chance to cover. The Spartans have a good defense but were barely able to beat FCS opponent Portland State last week. Auburn’s defense should control the game until the offense can get things going.
Prediction: Auburn 38, San Jose 10
