The Air Force Falcons can't get out of their own way, can't score points and have been fade material for the last few seasons. Not much has changed with Air Force this year if we're being honest. The Boise State Broncos are piling up the wins and covers, and they're playing defense for once. These are two teams heading in different directions and Boise State has been kind to bettors. No reason for me not to lay the chalk here with the Broncos.
