Bet on Boise State vs. Washington State

When you think of Mike Leach, you think of offense and points. I would suspect Washington State will score its fair share, but Boise State doesn’t look the offensive power it once was. I am not sure Boise State can do enough on offense to keep pace with the Cougars. Both teams trend with the under in non-conference play as Washington State has hit it in its last four non-conference games and Boise State has hit it in 5 of its last 6 non-conference contests.
