The Boise State Broncos are sitting near the top of the Mountain West for the time being but it's far from secure which makes every game almost a must win. With 72 points scored and 61 allowed this team has ability in most areas and is reason number one why they are one of the teams to beat. The red hot Broncos have won eight in a row after pummeling Air Force 67-42 Wednesday with a mere 14 first half points given up. The Falcons were held to 41% shooting wth the home team hitting at 46% with 10-27 mark from long range.

The Fresno State Bulldogs are a middle of the pack squad in a very top heavy conference which means they will have to make a move when the league playoffs begin. The Bulldogs likely have a great shot at going to some tournament if they can push their 11-13 record above .500. That goal has taken a turn for the worse with defeats in four of six after Wednesday's 73-61 loss at UNLV. The Rebels made a ten point lead at the break stand up with a slight 39%-37% shooting edge with a few more baskets and free throws getting the job done. Julien Lewis paced the Fresno State offense with 16 points with Karachi Edo adding 13 points and ten rebounds. Marvelle Harris netted 12 points and snagged six boards followed by an eight point effort from Paul Watson.
The Broncos are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games following a S.U. win and 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win. Boise State are 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games overall and 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games after allowing less than 50 points in their previous game. The Bulldogs are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss and 20-8-3 ATS in their last 31 games following a S.U. loss. Fresno State are 1-4-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 1-4-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. Mountain West. I hate laying points on the road but the red hot squad with a ton to play for is where I'm going...
