San Diego State is 2-5 against the spread in Saturday games and 4-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record. Boise State is 11-1 against the spread in their last 12 games, 7-0 against the spread against a team with a winning record, and 16-5 against the spread against the MWC. The underdog has covered the point spread in five of the last seven meetings of these two.
The total is agressively low here but it looks to be too agressive so I will just lean to the over. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
