College Football Picks: Will Boise State vs. BYU get to 44 points? 10/4/17

Will Boise State and BYU be involved in a physical battle when the two teams meet up on Friday at 10:15PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at, Boise State is favored on the road, as the Broncos are getting odds of -9 points against BYU. The over/under total for the game is listed at 44 points. The home team has won six straight games in this series and the two have hit the under in four of their last six meetings. Friday’s game takes place from LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo, Utah and it will air on ESPN.

Boise State is 2-2 on the season following a 42-23 loss at home to Virginia two weeks ago. The Broncos are 2-2 with the over/under as well, hitting the under in both wins. Boise is holding opponents to 29 points and 346.8 yards per game. On offense, Boise State is putting up 29.8 points and 351.3 yards per game. Montell Cozart has thrown for 416 yards and six touchdowns while rushing for 191 yards and two touchdowns. Cedrick Wilson has caught 29 passes for 485 yards and three touchdowns.

BYU is 1-4 this season following a 40-24 loss at Utah State last week. The Cougars are 3-2 with the under this season. BYU hasn’t had much of an offense at all, as the Cougars average 12.6 points and 256.6 yards per game. Tanner Mangum has thrown for 466 yards this season, but he is dealing with an ankle injury that has him out for a few weeks. His backup, Beau Hoge, is also questionable for this game with a head injury. Ula Tolutau and Squally Canada have combined for 365 rushing yards and two touchdowns. The defense is allowing 26.4 points and 381.6 yards per contest.

Bet on Boise State vs. BYU

The BYU offense can’t move the ball when healthy and the Cougars come in very banged up this week. I don’t see them having much success against the Boise State defense. While Boise State has a better offense than BYU, it’s not an offense that is going to consistently score. I can see BYU possibly getting shutout in this one, so it’s going to be up to Boise to do most of the scoring. I don’t think the Broncos can get the over on their own.
