Boise State simply has too much firepower offensively for Wyoming, which will lead to an easy point spread victory in this Mountain West Conference matchup.
Boise State is 8-2 SU and 5-5 ATS under first-year head coach Bryan Harsin, with the team winning the statistical battle in nine of 10 games, including by a 42-yard margin in a 38-29 come-from-behind victory over San Diego State as 14-point home favorites last Saturday.
The Broncos have captured all eight all-time meetings in this series, which can’t be ignored when making your college football betting picks, as they’ve won by seven points or more in all four previous trips to War Memorial Stadium.
Since the 2012 campaign, the program is 10-2 SU and 7-5 ATS as road favorites, with the OVER cashing in 10 of those 12 opportunities.
Wyoming has been ravaged by injuries during its first season under former North Dakota head coach Craig Bohl, which is important to consider when looking over the college football odds, but 13 players out of a group of 24 seniors have played 30 or more games over the course of their careers.
The Cowboys have put forth their two best defensive efforts of the year in their last two contests—holding Fresno State and Utah State to a combined 672 total yards. Over the last two-plus seasons, the squad is 0-11 SU and 2-9 ATS versus a team with a winning record, with the UNDER going 6-5 in that situation.
The Broncos are capable of scoring on any team in the country, as they’ve produced points in their last 31 trips inside the red zone, while they’ll arrive in Laramie with the No. 11 offense in the country that averages 508.9 yards per game. During Boise State’s current win streak, the offense has put up 500 or more yards three times, while it has averaged 48.2 points.
A Young Playmaker
The Cowboys have a chance of staying within this number if they hand the ball off to true freshman running back Brian Hill consistently, as he’s gained 524 yards on 76 carries over his last three games.
Hill became the every-down back when junior Shaun Wick suffered a season-ending injury on Oct. 25, but he’s lifted his level of play after accounting for just 50 yards on the ground in his first seven contests.
I’m going to recommend that readers back the Broncos as one of their college football picks, as the road team has covered the number in four of the last five installments of this series.
