If I told you there was a big, Mountain West betting edge on the late college football slate, most would assume it’s Hawaii on the island.
Unfortunately, it’s not. But watching New Mexico and Boise State match up on the blue turf to close out a long Saturday will certainly suffice.
The market’s expecting a blowout, with Boise laying four scores.
However, it’s the total that bettors — both sharp and recreational — appear to be stalking ahead of the night cap.
Here’s the over/under play on the mid-major matchup.
New Mexico vs. Boise State PRO Report, Pick
We’ve tracked Sharp Action and Big Money both rolling in on the over 48.
New Mexico’s scoring a nation-low 12.1 points against FBS teams this season; however, the Lobos may only need a couple scoring drives to get this one home, considering the defense has coughed up 31 or more points in five of the last six.
The over is getting 67% of the tickets at the time of writing, with close to 90% of the total handle.
Saturday’s total — which is still at a playable number of 48 around the marketplace — is on track to close as the lowest in a Boise State game all season.
A weak Lobos defense could be the remedy for Boise State’s offense, following a recent gauntlet that included Wyoming (No. 4 in pass yards allowed per game), Colorado State (No. 3 in Pass Success Rate allowed), Air Force (No. 6 in total yards allowed per game) and a Top-15 BYU squad.
The Broncos might go nuts, with stout San Diego State on deck.
PRO Pick: Over 48
