Boise State is 21-6 against the spread against the Mountain West Conference, 23-10 against the spread in their last 33 games, and 1-5 against the spread in their last six home games. San Diego State is 3-7-2 against the spread in their last 12 road games, 1-6-1 against the spread in their last eight games following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, and 2-0-2 against the spread in their last four road games against a team with a winning home record. The road team has covered the point spread in seven of the last 10 meetings of these two.
I see Boise winning and pulling away late so it isn’t a best bet or anything but I will take Boise laying the points.
