NCAA odds are again being beaten like a drum by Boise State but they will face a fierce college football gambling test against a Tulsa team that can score buckets of points. The Boise State Broncos have an NCAA odds record of 5-0 straight up and 4-1 against the spread.
Boise State is coming off a rather lackluster 34-16 home win over California Davis in which they failed to cover the college football gambling board as 47.5 point chalks. The Broncos have one of the most explosive attacks in the nation and rank 5th on the NCAA odds charts for scoring.
Head coach Chris Peterson has never had a losing season on the board with the NCAA odds and his team has covered the spread in 12 out of their last 17 matchups. Boise State can beat the NCAA odds both through the air and on the ground.
Sophomore quarterback Kellen Moore has thrown for 1217 yards and 13 touchdown passes this year while junior running back Jeremy Avery has 442 yards rushing. The Bronco defense is often overlooked by NCAA odds handicappers but is a solid unit that ranks 14th in the nation.
Boise State has quality road wins and payouts this year at Fresno State and at Bowling Green. The Tulsa Golden Hurricanes have a NCAA odds record of 4-1 straight up and 3-1-1 against the spread. The Golden Hurricanes are coming off a 27-10 win at Rice that was a push with the NCAA odds.
Head coach Todd Graham has an explosive pass attack led by sophomore, who has 1142 yards and 10 touchdown passes. Tulsa had just 5 starters returning on offense but has made rapid strides with the no huddle attack. “It’s been the formula for a lot of points”, said Boise State coach Peterson of the Tulsa attack.
In matchups this year against BCS teams Boise State controlled Pac 10 leading Oregon 19-8 while Tulsa was destroyed at Oklahoma 0-45.
