Friday, October 17th, 8:00 PM, Bronco Stadium, Boise, IdahoThe 3-4 Bulldogs (3-4 ATS against the spread) haven’t had the best of starts this season. Most recently, they lost 30-27 in overtime to UNLV despite rallying back from 17 points down. In last season’s matchup with the Broncos, the Bulldogs nipped with a 41-40 victory, so they’ll go to Friday’s game feeling they can do it again. This, however, will be a tall order considering the Broncos are remarkably 12-1 against the spread in their last 13 games with the Bulldogs. Will the Bulldogs leave the Bronco Stadium with another win or will the Broncos’ 17-3 SU record in their last 20 home games propel them to another home win?
Though the wild Mountain West championship race is heavily-contended, recent wins by Boise State has put the team in cruise-control of their championship fate. If the 4-2 Broncos (4-2 ATS) win the upcoming game against the Fresno State Bulldogs and follow that with four more conference wins, they’d certainly win the Mountain Division. Going by their strong 4-1 SU and ATS record in the last five games, a couple of more wins look achievable for the Broncos. So let’s check the football line, team records and other relevant info heading to this game.
