Over on the San Jose State side, they’re 7-19 on the year. The Spartans are 0-5 in their last five games, dropping to Boise State, Wyoming, Nevada, Fresno State and Air Force in succession.

The favorite is 16-5 ATS in the last 21 meetings between these teams and the home team is 17-5 ATS in the last 22 meetings between these teams. San Jose State is 8-2 ATS on Wednesday games this season and 115-77 ATS when playing against a team with a losing record since 1997.
Boise State is 4-0 ATS versus San Jose State over the last three seasons and 4-0 straight up over the last three seasons. Four of four games in this series have gone over the total in the last three seasons as well.
Boise hit the wall against a really good (and undefeated) San Diego State team, but outside of that they’ve been quite competitive over their last eight games—aside from a nine-point road loss to Utah State, anyway.
As for San Jose State, they’ve been scoring at a really good clip (77 or more in each of their last three), but they’re also giving up a truckload of points on the other side with regularity. This is probably going to be another high-scoring game, and I think the Broncos can power out a cover.
