Broncos not at their best lately
Boise State is coming off a 52-42 win at home at San Jose State last week to bounce back from a 28-25 loss at BYU prior to that. The Broncos are now 7-1 on the season, 4-0 in the Mountain West, 4-3-1 against the spread and 5-3 with the over.
The Broncos are putting up 37.4 points and 469.2 yards per game on offense this year, while the defense is giving up 23.4 points and 351.9 yards per contest. Hank Bachmeier has thrown for 1,760 yards and nine touchdowns to lead the offense. George Holani is the leading rusher with 589 yards and five touchdowns while John Hightower is the leading receiver with 31 catches for 584 yards. Curtis Weaver is leading the defense with 35 tackles and 10.5 sacks.
Cowboys looking for third straight win
The Wyoming Cowboys are coming off a bye week, but they have won back-to-back games, besting New Mexico and Nevada. Wyoming is 6-2 on the season, 3-1 in the MWC, 5-3 against the spread and 5-3 with the under.
Wyoming is respectable on defense this season, allowing 17.6 points and 387.1 yards per game. Offensively, Wyoming is putting up 28.9 points and 364.2 yards per contest. The Cowboys have a great rushing attack. Sean Chambers has thrown for 915 yards and seven touchdowns while rushing for 567 yards and 10 touchdowns. However, he suffered a season-ending knee injury recently. Tyler Vander Waal is his replacement. He is just 4 of 16 passing for 84 yards. Xazavian Valladay is the leading rusher with 631 yards and four scores. Raghib Ismail Jr. is the leading receiver with 11 receptions for 203 yards and two scores. Alijah Halliburton is leading the defense with 76 tackles, two sacks and an interception.
College Football Betting Trends
The Broncos are 6-2-2 against the spread in their last 10 conference games and 5-2 ATS in their last seven home games.
The Cowboys are 4-1 against the spread in their last five road games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 overall.
Boise State has won nine of the last 10 against Wyoming but the Cowboys have covered in three of the last four in the series. Despite that, I think Wyoming is going to have trouble on offense today with the injury at QB. Boise State has been inconsistent at times on defense, but the Broncos should be fine at home against a short-handed offense. I don’t expect the Broncos to score at will against Wyoming either, but they won’t need to put up 40 points to cover this spread tonight.
