The Tulsa Golden Hurricane have had little covering success dating back to last season, and they have defensive issues that make them hard to trust on the road. The Boise State Broncos are due for a breakout performance, and it’s only a matter of time before the offense picks up. I’m not thrilled about this line, but I lean Boise State if forced to pick.
