The Line: Boise State Broncos -16 -- Over/Under:
The Air Force Falcons head to Albertsons Stadium to take on the Boise State Broncos in an MWC tilt.
The Air Force Falcons are on a roll and are now staring at the postseason following four straight wins that has them sitting at 7-3. The Falcons are coming off of a 35-28 victory versus visiting Utah State as a two point underdog. AFA never trailed as they rolled up 580 yards with balance while the Aggies were held to 439 yards and mostly passing. Quarterback Karson Roberts gave the Falcons a monster 271 passing yards and a touchdown on 11-17 with Jalen Robinette hauling in seven balls for 210 yards and a score. DJ Johnson and led the AFA rushing attack with 79 yards apiece while Jacobi Owens and Roberts combined for 111 yards on 29 carries and three TD’s.
The Boise State Broncos are a solid 7-3 on the season and will be going Bowling even though they don’t appear to be as dominant as usual. Case in point was week eleven’s 31-24 home loss to New Mexico as a 31 point favorite which was shocking to say the least. Boise amassed 638 yards but gave the ball away four times while the Lobos totaled413 yards with a pick and lost fumble. Quarterback Brett Rypien gave the Broncos 503 passing yards with a pair of touchdowns but three crucial interceptions on 40-74. Thomas Sperbeck was the receiver of choice with 20 receptions for 281 yards while Jeremy McNichols was the Broncos go to guy on the ground with 128 yards and a TD on 26 touches.
The Falcons are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall and the over is 4-0 in Falcons last 4 conference games while the Falcons are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing more than 280 yards passing in their previous game. The under is 6-0 in Broncos last 6 home games and the over is 7-1 in Broncos last 8 vs. a team with a winning record while the under is 5-1 in Broncos last 6 games after accumulating more than 280 yards passing in their previous game. I wouldn’t write off Boise but the points are just too tempting…
