rypien_broncos_mwc

The Boise State Broncos vie for their second Mountain West Conference championship game win on home turf in four years as they host the Fresno State Bulldogs on Saturday night at Albertsons Stadium. The Broncos saw a seven-game SU win streak halted with last week’s 28-17 loss at Fresno State as 6.5-point chalk. With that victory, the Bulldogs extended their SU surge to four games.

Shark Bites
  • Fresno State is 4-12 ATS in its last 16 games against Boise State.
  • Boise State is 19-3 SU in its last 22 games after a loss.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of Fresno State’s last seven games after winning as an underdog.

The Broncos return to the MWC championship game for the first time since topping Fresno State 28-14 as 22.5-point home favorites in 2014. Boise State has been solid at home, posting three straight SU wins while surrendering just 15.7 points per game. The Broncos are also 14-2 ATS in their past 16 home dates when favored by 10 or fewer points.

Last week’s victory over Boise State lifts the Bulldogs to an impressive 7-1 SU against MWC opponents this season, halting a dismal 2-14 SU run that started with their 2014 championship game loss. The Bulldogs have dominated on the road during an 8-1 SU run, holding opponents to 10 or fewer points on three occasions in four SU wins, 3-0-1 ATS.

The home team has dominated in recent matchups between these squads, with each winning two straight. The Bulldogs have covered in three of those four outings, but have struggled to generate offense on the blue turf at Boise State, scoring 16 or fewer points five times during a 0-8 SU run.
