NCAA football gambling excitement continues to build for Boise State as they are ranked 3rd in the BCS standings and are huge favorites with the NCAA betting lines to win the WAC.
Kickoff for Louisiana Tech at Boise State is set for 8:05 PM Eastern on ESPN2 and Sports-Gambling opened with Boise State as a 38 point favorite.
Louisiana Tech has a NCAA football betting record of 3-4 both straight up and against the spread. The Bulldogs are coming off a 48-35 home win over Idaho on October 16 as 1.5 point home dogs.
Defense is the major weakness of the Bulldogs which does not bode well for a trip to the famed blue turf as Tech ranks 113th in the nation and a horrible 118th against the pass. Louisiana Tech ranks 83rd for scoring on offense.
Boise State has a record of 6-0 straight up and 5-1 with the NCAA football odds. The Broncos rank 4th in scoring and 2nd in points allowed. Quarterback Kellen Moore has a 70% completion rate good for 10.4 yards per attempt and a 16/1 touchdown/interception ratio to make a strong case for the Heisman Trophy.
