Washington State is 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games. The over is 6-2 in Washington State’s last 8 road games. Boise State is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games. The under is 6-1 in Boise State’s last 7 home games. Washington State is 4-0 ATS in these two teams last 4 meetings.
Washington State came out and laid an egg in their opening game by losing to Eastern Washington, while Boise State handled their week 1 opponent. The Washington State defense looked very shaky and I expect Boise State to pass the ball all over the Cougar secondary. Boise State is a very solid team this season and I like them in this game.
