The winner of this game will be in sole possession of first place in the WAC. Boise State (6-0, 3-2 ATS) has dominated the series, going a perfect 7-0 SU since 2001, outscoring the Spartans by the average score of 48.1-17.9. Last year, the Broncos destroyed SJSU 42-7 on the blue field in Boise.
Football betting fanatics who played the Broncos last Friday night were bitterly disappointed by the lack of a consistent Boise State offense. The defense forced five turnovers, but the lack of a rushing game prevented Boise from covering the lofty 23-point spread per the closing NCAA betting line.
They only managed 3.58 yards per carry. QB Kellen Moore played well, going 25-of-33 for 256 yards and three scores. The 27-7 victory marked the third straight Boise State game that fell comfortably under the posted ‘total’. Those three games fell short of the number by an average of 19.8 points per game.
NCAA bettors that have consistently backed San Jose State (5-2, 5-1 ATS) have quietly been amongst the happiest in the nation. They’ve now beaten the college football betting line in eight of their L/9. Last Saturday, a stifling defense keyed a 31-14 victory for SJSU.
They only allowed New Mexico State’s potent offense 284 total yards and forced four turnovers, including two pick-sixes in the first half. The offense struggled though, only mustering 201 total yards.
They rank 99th in the country with 313.4 yards per game, but they have excelled on defense, ranking in the Top-25 in total yards allowed (272.6), rushing yards allowed (86.7), and points per game allowed (16.6). Oddsmakers have installed Boise State as 7-point road favorites, with the ‘total’ sitting at 43.5.
NCAAF Betting trends suggest a lower scoring match-up. Boise’s last ten road games have resulted in eight ‘unders’, while the Spartans have been a dead-nuts ‘under’ team for quiet awhile now. They’re an astounding 22-4-1 for ‘under’ bettors in their L/27 overall WAC games. The last three meetings between these two WAC rivals have gone ‘under’ the ‘total’ as well.
