The Colorado State Rams hope a home game against the Boise State Broncos will help them get back on the winning side.
The Rams have lost two in a row and five of their last seven games. During their losing stretch, they’re averaging just 65.4 points and shooting 39.4 percent from the field, while the defense is allowing 64.8 points on 42.6 percent shooting. They’ve only topped 70 points once in their last five games, as Daniel Bejarano continues to have to carry the offensive load, scoring 21 or more points in three of his last four games. The Rams are 6-13-1 ATS and 3-8 ATS at home.

The Broncos were finally able to finish a game as they beat New Mexico 71-70 in comeback fashion, snapping a three-game losing streak. They continue to light it up from downtown, shooting 41.2 percent from beyond the arc in their last five games. Defensively, they’re holding teams to 68.8 points, but allowing them to shoot 52.4 percent in their last five. On the road they average 71.4 points and give up 72.2 points. They are 6-14 ATS and 4-6 ATS on the road.
The Broncos haven’t exactly been a great road team, losing their last three road trips and shooting the ball poorly. And while the Rams haven’t been winning anywhere, they do have a huge rebounding advantage over Boise. The Broncos average 34.5 boards per game, while the Rams are one of the better rebounding teams in the country with an average of 38 rebounds.
Crashing the glass gives Colorado State a solid chance of even winning this game SU. Not to mention the home team is 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings between these two teams.
Give me the struggling Rams in a pick'em game.
