San Diego State plays its first game in two weeks against the rising Boise State Broncos, which won 11 games in a row as a Mountain West contender.
Still, it’s a brutally scheduled venue for Boise, who will arrive for a short break after playing a tight game against Wyoming en route on Thursday.
Who has the edge in this MWC marquee match? Here are the odds from WynnBET Sportsbook.
Total: 122 (Over -115/Under -105)
It’s hard to find reasons to support Boise State, who are playing their fifth game in 11 nights against a well-rested San Diego State team.
Aztec is in the top 10 for defensive effectiveness, allowing for the third lowest effective scoring rate nationally. They played a relentlessly disciplined defense on that side. They deliver the seventh longest average defensive possession period and should prevent a foul in the average Boise State, which sits in the bottom half of the country in eFG%.
San Diego State is said to have had the full roster during this two-week pause, and is gearing up for this matchup in a game of MWC regular season significance. The Broncos played offensively and just went down the rope with Wyoming at high altitude, I can’t back them up in this position.
SDSU won the last five games against Boise, if that helps.
However, with such a low total game, I’m not interested in placing points, but will use Aztec as a parlay piece, which I covered in my best bets column.
PICK: San Diego State ML in one inning
