Boise State is 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 7-1 in their last 8 road games. Air Force is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall while the under is 6-1 in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record.
I get the case to be made either way in this game, but I’m backing the over here. You could make the case either way, but Boise State’s offense has really turned it on since the QB change to Taylen Green and Air Force finally woke up to play after a couple of duds in back-to-back weeks. I think this ends up being a game that gets into the low-50s, so give me the over here.
