Bet The Boise State Broncos at -16 Because…
The Broncos are putting points on the board like crazy – and playing defense at a high level.
Boise State has won three straight – by putting at least 50 points on the board each time – while simultaneously giving up just 14 points in one game while pitching two shutouts, including their 55-0 Week 5 destruction against Hawaii.
True freshman quarterback Brett Rypien looked fantastic in completing 19 of 25 passes for 271 yards and three touchdowns while running back Jeremy McNichols added 108 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries.
The Broncos are ranked 13th in scoring (40.6 ppg) and a stellar eighth in points allowed (12.4 ppg).
Bet The Colorado State Rams at +16 Because…
You’re either a Rams alumni or you believe Boise Sate will fail to show up for this contest.
All jokes aside, I’m thinking Colorado State is in serious trouble in this contest. The Rams looked awful in their 33-18, Week 5 loss against Utah State as they allowed Aggies quarterback Kent Myers to pass for 137 yards and one touchdown while rushing for 191 yards and another score.
The Rams turned the ball over three times in the loss and were nearly shut out in the second half. Colorado State averages 32.0 points per game (32nd) and allows 25.4 points per game defensively (76th).
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
At 64 percent, two-thirds of the betting public likes Boise State and I’m surprised it’s not a bit higher to be honest about it.
Colorado State is just the kind of team that Boise State has been pounding the snot out of recently and are simply overmatched against the Broncos, both offensively and defensively.
Boise State has gone 5-2 ATS in their last seven games following an SU win while Colorado State is a polar-opposite 2-5 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record.
