Against The Spread Pick
The Fresno State Bulldogs have had a really ugly season thus far, and that could get even worse as the Bulldogs host Boise State at Save Mart Center. The Broncos are 6-3 in their last nine games, but the road has been unforgiving for them. Fresno State has only won two of their last eight games and is just 2-4 in their last six at home. Fresno State has been able to win four of their last five games against Boise State at Save Mart Center. Two of the last three meetings have been decided by single-digits. That includes the two-point win for Fresno State last season. This match-up features a two-point spread, and this game will likely be close to that margin. Taking the Broncos to cover is the right play here.
Over Under Pick
Fresno State hasn’t been a team worth points this season, so much so that they are 258th in the nation in scoring. It looks to be getting a little better for the Bulldogs, but they have leaned more towards the under for much of the season. Boise State is averaging nearly 78 points per game, which has them among the top 40 teams in the country. The last three head-to-head meetings have all finished with totals less than 138 points. Even with the Broncos enjoying an over the total in four of their last five games, the under 138.5 is a smarter play here.
