Betting line favors Spartans over Broncos

The Boise State Broncos continue their tradition of playing anybody anywhere anytime when they hit East Lansing to battle the Michigan State Spartans Friday night.

BSU, coming off a 12-1 season but with a lot of holes to fill, is getting seven points from MSU, which itself lost several key players from the team that lost the inaugural Big Ten championship game last year. [ Bet on MSU latest lines at Bovada ]

And history tells us two things about BSU - they are almost never an underdog (just seven times since 2006) and they cover the spread in that role (6-1 ATS).
