Boise State is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the under is 8-0 in their last 8 Sunday games.
I get why Boise State is favored here, and I’m as high as anybody on Boise State this year, especially with the win over BYU last time out. You can also dock points from Weber State for playing a cupcake schedule in their first two games of the season. However, when you have a scorer like Isiah Brown like Weber State does, you’ll always have a chance to cover big numbers and the thing about Weber State is that Brown has a pretty good supporting cast around him that can add to the offensive output. I just think we have a case of too many points here, so I’ll take a shot at Weber State and the points here.
