BYU had a 4-0 start to the season, but price per head agents saw that ever since the Cougars lost the services of highly skilled QB Taysom Hill due to a horrible injury to the leg, they’re now 0-3 both ATS and SU. And this week things are not becoming any easier for them, as on Friday night BYU will visit Albertsons Stadium to take on Boise State.
Boise State’s betting line opened up with the Broncos being the favorites at home by 6.5 points.
BYU suffered a massive blow when they lost the services of Hill, but the problems that the team had recently cannot be fully blamed on their situation at the QB position. Three interceptions were thrown by Christian Stewart – who took the place of Hill – when the team took on the Utah State Aggies. Then the player only threw one interception and three TD passes in a game against the UCF Knights.
When BYU were beaten last week 42-35 by the Nevada Wolf Pack, the player was able to throw four TD passes and no picks. However, the Cougars were able to outgain Nevada 601-411, and in the middle of the game’s third quarter they were leading 28-13, but the team paid the price after three fumbles were lost.
Ever since their season opened when they were beaten by the Ole Miss Rebels, Boise State were able to win five out of six meetings, and they went 4-2 ATS, which includes the 37-27 win last week over the Fresno State Bulldogs. Price per head agents saw that the Broncos were able to outgain Fresno State 492-313.
This season, Boise State were able to outrush and outgain six out of seven teams that they faced, and in most cases, these are proper ways cover and win. In total offense, the Broncos have a ranking of 23rd place, and with the help of RB Jay Ajayi, who this season was already able to run for almost 900 yards, and the running defense which is ranked at 24th place, they’re able to outrush their opponents by more than 70 yards in each game played, something that could give them an edge when they take on the Cougars.
Many experts believe that the game between the Cougars and Broncos will be a very close one, and can’t wait to see what will happen on the field on Saturday when these teams face each other.
