Rest assured, Boise State wants this game badly. Last year, with a BCS ticket on the line, the Broncos strolled into Reno a two-touchdown favorite and lost the game 34-31. That was BSU’s only blemish in its 2010 campaign and to say the Broncos want payback would be an understatement!
On the blue FieldTurf inside Bronco Stadium, Boise has been tough to beat posting a remarkable 45-22-2 ATS record. In this role matched up against a conference opponent, State tightens up to a rewarding 31-12-2 ATS including a phenomenal 29-6-1 ATS in this set priced as an underdog or a favorite of -35 or less! Also, in Boise checking in off a blowout victory of 10 points or more, Coach Chris Petersen’s troops have manufactured a money-making 32-14-1 ATS mark.
Boise is catching Nevada at the right time too. This will be the Wolf Pack’s fourth consecutive road game to start the season. In its first three games, Nevada visited Oregon, San Jose State and Texas Tech. Boise, Idaho is not the place to be if you are road weary and out of gas! The Broncos know how to suffocate teams on the “Smurf Turf” and they’ll be champing at the bit to do exactly that especially since they’ll be fueled by revenge motivation.
On foreign soil priced in between -8 and +29, Nevada has struggled something fierce notching a weak 23-40-2 ATS mark. That doesn’t bode well for the Wolf Pack. Since picking up a win in Boise back in 1999, Nevada has dropped its last six trips to Bronco Stadium by margins of 35, 42, 53, 35, 2 and 11 points respectively. That’s an average beating of 29.7 points per game. Here comes one more. Take Boise State! Thank you and best of luck, Tom Stryker. Get more college football picks from Tom Stryker at Touthouse.com.
