Utah State picking up steam
Utah State is riding a two-game win streak coming into this weekend. The Aggies are coming off a 26-21 win at home over Wyoming. Utah State is now 6-4 on the season, 5-1 in the Mountain West, 6-4 against the spread and 6-4 with the under.
The Aggies are middle of the road on offense and defense. They are giving up 26.7 points and 431.2 yards per contest, while the offense is putting up 28 points and 434.2 yards per game. Jordan Love has thrown for 2,684 yards and 13 touchdowns, but he also has 14 interceptions. He is questionable for this game with an undisclosed injury, but there aren’t any solid indications that he won’t play. Gerold Bright is the leading rusher, who has 670 yards and six touchdowns on the ground. Siaosi Mariner has 49 receptions for 753 yards and seven touchdowns to lead the receivers.
Boise State dominates New Mexico
Boise State is riding a three-game winning streak entering this weekend after the Broncos ran over New Mexico last week, 42-9. Boise State is 9-1 on the season, 6-0 in the MWC, 5-4-1 against the spread and 5-5 with the over/under total.
The Broncos have been steady on both sides of the ball this year. The defense is giving up just 21.3 points and 339 yards per game, while the offense is putting up 36.1 points and 454.8 yards per contest. Hank Bachmeier has missed the last two games with a shoulder injury and is questionable to go tonight as well. He has thrown for 1,760 yards and nine touchdowns. Jaylon Henderson played last week and he has thrown for 380 yards and four touchdowns. George Holani is the team’s leading rusher with 692 yards and five touchdowns while John Hightower is the leading receiver with 754 yards and six touchdowns. The Boise defense is led by Curtis Weaver, who has 42 tackles and 12.5 sacks. He is also questionable for this game with a foot injury.
College Football Betting Trends
The Aggies are 9-2 against the spread in their last 11 home games and 16-7 ATS in their last 23 games overall.
The Broncos are 7-3-2 against the spread in their last 12 conference games and 8-0-1 ATS in their last nine games after allowing less than 20 points in their previous game.
Boise State has won three straight in the series while covering in the last two meetings as well. Both teams have injury situations to keep an eye on that could impact this game a great deal. The Broncos have been rotating between good and bad outings, rolling one week and then getting a close call the next. Utah State looked solid at home last week against a Wyoming team that took Boise to OT. I think the Broncos could be in trouble tonight. They just haven’t been great at pulling away from opponents enough for me to trust them on the road against a Utah State team playing with some confidence right now. Give me the home team with the points.
