College Football Odds, Navy Vs. San Jose State: Midshipmen Narrow Favorites Over Slumping Spartans

The Navy Midshipmen (4-6) look for their first three-game winning streak of the season this Saturday, Nov. 19, when they visit the San Jose St. Spartans (3-7, 2-4 Western Athletic Conference). The Midshipmen must win this game and its season finale against the Army Black Knights in order to remain bowl eligible, so they have no margin for error. If their last two games are any indication, however, they're on the right track. The same cannot be said for the Spartans, who have lost each of their last three.

The oddsmakers believe Navy will stay alive for at least another week, listing it as 4.5-point favorites--five-point favorites in some places--against San Jose St., according to SB Nation partner OddsShark. It's the first meeting between the two teams in history.

The oddsmakers also believe the game will be high-scoring, setting the over-under at 60 points. Both teams indeed struggle defensively: the Spartans allow 31.6 points per game, while the Midshipmen yield 29.9.
