Broncos marching along
The Broncos are coming into Saturday’s game at a perfect 5-0 thanks to a 38-13 win at UNLV last weekend. Boise State is 2-0 in the Mountain West, 3-1-1 against the spread and 3-2 with the under.
Boise State has been respectable on offense and defense. The defense is giving up just 16 points and 305.6 yards per game this year. Offensively, Boise State is putting up 32.6 points and 482.2 yards per contest. Hank Bachmeier has thrown for 1,489 yards and eight touchdowns to lead the offense while Khalil Shakir has 26 receptions for 357 yards and two touchdowns. George Holani and Robert Mahone have combined for 603 rushing yards and four scores.
Hawaii dominates Nevada on the road
In one of the most shocking results from two weeks ago, Hawaii went to Nevada and earned a 54-3 victory as a 2-point underdog. The Warriors are 4-1 on the season, 1-0 in the Mountain West, 3-2 against the spread and 3-2 with the under.
Hawaii, like usual, is one of the top offensive teams in the country. The Warriors are putting up 37 points and 481.4 yards per game. Their passing attack ranks fourth nationally with 356.8 yards per game. Defensively, Hawaii is giving up 27.4 points and 392.2 yards per contest. Cole McDonald has thrown for 1,629 yards and 17 touchdowns, but also has nine interceptions. Cedric Byrd II is the leading receiver with 40 catches for 498 yards and nine touchdowns while Miles Reed is the leading rusher with 238 yards and three scores.
College Football Betting Trends
Boise State is 5-1-2 against the spread in its last eight conference games and 5-2-1 ATS in their last eight following a win.
The Warriors are 3-10-1 against the spread in their last 14 road games and 5-11-2 ATS in their last 18 games following a win.
Boise State has won six straight against Hawaii and covered the spread in the last five meetings. The Broncos have been able to solve the Hawaii puzzle, holding the Warriors offense to 16 points or less in the last six meetings as well. While Hawaii put on a show on the road last week, but Warriors looked very flat at Washington weeks ago. I think Boise State can hold back this Hawaii defense once again and the Warriors just don’t have the physicality to compete against the Boise offense.
