Spread: N10

Total: N/A

Kickoff: 4:30 pm ET

Location: Spartan Stadium San Jose Ca.

Television Broadcast: N/A

PREVIEW: The San Jose State Spartans will host the Portland State Vikings in a non-conference game in Week 2. The Spartans are coming off a blowout loss in Week 1, falling 45-10 to Tulsa. Senior quarterback Kenny Potter connected on just 16-of-28 pass attempts, throwing for 234 yards and a touchdown along with one interception. He might find life a little easier against the defense of Portland State. The Vikings allowed Central Washington’s quarterback Justin Lane to throw for 321 yards and three touchdowns in a losing effort last week. San Jose State has been a good bet when coming off a loss, covering the spread in each of their last four such situations. The Spartans have failed to reach the total in each of their last four non-conference games, but they’ve gone over in seven straight home games against teams that are above .500. The Vikings have made bettors money when playing on the road, covering the spread in four of their last five away from Portland. In order to be successful here in San Jose, they will need to be effective running the football. They ran for 286 yards and four touchdowns in a 43-26 win over Central Washington last Saturday.

WHO IS THE ICEMAN? He’s no soothsayer and he doesn’t have a crystal ball, but Jesse Schule can indeed predict the future. As a professional handicapper, it’s actually part of his job description. His clients have accused him of secretly possessing Marty McFly’s Sports Almanac, but he tells us the secret to his success is thanks in part to his fascination with history. The idea that you can predict the future by studying the past is nothing new. Historians have been doing it for years.

Handicapping Methodology: Jesse is not a believer in systems, programs or number crunching formulas to handicap games. He is firm in his belief that you aren't playing against the sportsbook, you are playing against the average Joe (other bettors). Jesse is notorious for attacking inflated point spreads, soft lines and totals that are a little out of whack. He also relies on a nearly photographic memory with an uncanny ability to tell you a player's history and stats dating back for decades. Anyone can look up how many touchdowns a guy has scored, Jesse can also tell you about the ones that he almost scored.

Money Management: His plays are rated based on a 1-10 star system, and he recommends wagering 0.5 percent of your bankroll per star rating. So a top rated 10* play would represent a bet equal to five percent of a player's bankroll.

Signature Plays:

AFTERNOON EXECUTIONER: This title is reserved for games with a start time between 12:00 – 4:30 ET. These are popular with action junkies who are dying for the games to get underway.

The TERMINATOR: Jesse's signature totals play, the Terminator has established a reputation as one of the most consistent winners in Schule's repertoire.

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE: These plays represent a game where the stats show a significant trend which isn't reflected in the price.

GRIM REAPER BLOWOUT: His signature play reserved for medium to large favorites. High percentage plays for those who don't mind laying chalk.

HOT DIGGITY DOG: This is the Iceman's signature underdog play. About as rare as strawberries in December, you'll want to grab these whenever they are available
