Why Bet the Boise State Broncos Line at -8
Boise State has alternated SU wins and losses all season and come into their Week 6 matchup against BYU off a dismal 42-23 home loss against Virginia. Quarterback Brett Rypien completed just 24 of 42 passes for 285 yards but failed to throw a touchdown pass while tossing one pick. The Broncos were held to a pitiful 30 rushing yards on 24 total carries in the loss and were limited to 4-for-16 success on third down and 1-for-4 on fourth downs.
Why Bet the BYU Cougars Line at +8
BYU has lost four straight since winning their opener and come into this contest off a humbling 40-24 road loss to Utah State as quarterback Koy Detmer Jr. threw three interceptions before being replaced by backup Beau Hoge who came in and tossed two TD passes and one interception in relief. BYU did rush for 210 yards in the loss, but went 4-for-14 on third downs and simply couldn’t overcome their insane seven turnovers.
Boise State Vs BYU Betting Advice
Right now, it doesn’t look like BYU could be a really good high school team which makes the Boise State Broncos the easy pick to win and cash in against the Cougars in this contest.
BYU is averaging a discouraging 12.6 points per game and giving up 26.4 points per contest defensively. The Cougars are 0-6 ATS in their last six games and 0-4 ATS in their last four home games while Boise State has gone 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games after rushing for more than 100 yards in their previous contest.
BYU quarterback Koy Detmer Jr. is a shadow of his dad and probably needs to be benched, like immediately! Keep it simple people. Boise State is the far better team in all three phases of the game.
Pick: Boise State -8
