The 24th-ranked Boise State Broncos will look to rebound from their first loss of the season and keep their New Year’s Bowl Six hopes alive when they host the San Jose State Spartans in a Week 10 matchup that looks like a lopsided affair just waiting to happen.
Now let’s find out of the Broncos can cover the college football betting lines as a nearly four-touchdown home favorite.

San Jose State Spartans
The Spartans (3-6 SU, 3-5 ATS) got past the UNLV Rebels 30-24, this past Saturday by taking 27-10 lead into the half and holding on late to get the win. Wide receiver Tre Hartley caught five passes for 104 yards and two touchdowns to lead San Jose State to victory. For the season, quarterback Kenny Potter is completing just 57.1 percent of his passes with 11 touchdowns and six interceptions.
The San Jose State Spartans are averaging 23.1 points per game to rank an uninspiring 105th in scoring while allowing whopping 35.1 points per game defensively to rank a pitiful 111th in points allowed.
Boise State Broncos
The Broncos (7-1 SU, 3-5 ATS) suffered their first loss of the season by falling to Wyoming 30-28, this past weekend while allowing the Cowboys to come roaring back from a 21-7 deficit early in the second quarter. Boise State is averaging healthy 33.5 points per game to rank 40th in scoring as gifted running back Jeremy McNichols has racked up 14 rushing scores while averaging a stellar 132.3 rushing yards per game.
For the season, quarterback Brett Rypien has completed 62.6 percent of his passes with 15 touchdowns and six interceptions. Defensively, Boise State is limiting their opponents to 21.6 points per game to rank 28th in points allowed.
Expert Prediction and Pick
Boise State has won 10 straight against San Jose State with two of their last three wins coming by at least 38 points. With the Broncos getting completely humbled by Wyoming last weekend, I’m expecting Boise State to bring their collective ‘A’ game in this Week 10 matchup to cover the college football betting line.
San Jose State is just 6-13 ATS in their last 19 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following an ATS win. While Boise State has gone 0-7 ATS in their last seven home games, the Broncos are also 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games following a straight up loss and 5-0 ATS in their last five games against the Spartans. I’m fully expecting Boise State superstar running back Jeremy McNichols to run wild while leading the Broncos to the emphatic win and narrow ATS cover.
