San Diego State
The Aztecs are 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall. San Diego State is 10-1 ATS in its last 11 road games.
The Broncos are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall. The home team is 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings.
Boise State has won 11 straight home games, but aside from an overtime win over BYU back on November 20 it has not exactly been a murderer's row of competition. The Aztecs are legit and top 10 nationally in both adjusted offensive and defensive efficiency. The biggest issue for SDSU is a possible letdown after clinching the conference title, but the allure of a perfect regular season record will certainly keep the Aztecs churning on. I'm taking the road favorites here.
