Boise State vs. Wyoming Pick
Will Boise State and Wyoming score enough points to push the score over the betting total or will the teams fall short on Saturday night?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Broncos are now 13.5-point road favorites versus the Cowboys after the line opened at Boise State -14.5. As for the total, the number hit the board at 61.5 but has been bet up a full point to 62.5.
Boise State remains unbeaten on the year despite receiving a scare last Thursday night from BYU. The Broncos held on to a 28-27 win but failed to cover the spread for the fifth time in seven games this year. Boise's only two covers came in a 45-10 win over UL-Lafayette in Week 1 as an 18.5-point favorite and at New Mexico on October 7 as an 18.5-point road favorite.
Wyoming is having a great year by its standards and a good year by anyone else's. The Cowboys are 5-2 this season, have won three straight games and have a winning record at 4-3 at the betting window as well. Wyoming has covered the spread in three straight games, including twice as an underdog (at Colorado State at +5.5 and home versus Air Force as a 13.5-point dog). The Cowboys have especially fared well in the home underdog roll, going 2-0 against the number this season.
OUR PICK: The over is 9-2 in the Broncos' last 11 games versus an opponent with a winning record and is 25-9 in their last 34 road games. The over is also 20-7 in Boise State's last 27 road games versus a team with a winning home record and is 21-8 in its last 29 games when it failed to cover in its previous game. On the other side, the over is 4-0 in the Cowboys' last four conference games, is 6-2 in their last eight games overall, and is 4-0 in their last four games played in the month of October.
