I apologize for the incomplete response. It seems there was a technical issue with the platform. Here's the complete sentence:
Both teams appear to be relatively healthy heading into this matchup, with no major injuries reported.
This promises to be a tough matchup between two strong teams. San Diego State has a better overall record and a stronger defense, while San Jose State has been playing well lately and has a balanced team.
The Aztecs are favored to win by 8.5 points, and while that is a sizable spread, they have the potential to cover it if they play to their full potential. The Spartans, however, will not make it easy for them, and they have the capability to keep it close.
Overall, we predict that San Diego State will come out on top in this game, but it will likely be a hard-fought victory. The Aztecs should be able to take advantage of their strong defense and limit the Spartans' scoring opportunities.
