After a poor start to the season, the Racing have won two games in a row. Last week, CSU was able to come away with the victory over New Mexico, thanks to a strong defensive performance against one of the top scoring offenses in the country.
Boise State was able to rebound after a loss to San Diego State and beat the Nevada Wolf Pack in
Reno. It was a back and forth game, before Boise State used a 17-play, eight and a half minute drive in the second half to pull away.
Here’s what the Rams can do to end their losing streak to the Broncos.
Mountain West teams looking to keep pace with Utah State face off Friday when theGolden Lions host the Racing at 9 p.m. ET. Each team is 2-1 in the conference, and the latest Boise State vs. Colorado State odds show the Broncos as 23.5-point favorites. The over-under, or total points Vegas thinks will be scored, is up to 62.5 from the opening line of 58.5. The Broncos have won all seven previous meetings, but will they cover the spread? Before you lay down your own Boise State vs. Colorado State picks, you’ll want to hear what SportsLine expert and Vegas legend Micah Roberts has to say.
Roberts has worked in the Las Vegas sportsbook industry for 20 years, including a 13-year run as Station Casinos’ book director. Armed with an unmatched network of sources, he crushed college football for SportsLine members in 2016, going 70-44 on the season.
Moreover, Roberts has been locked in on the tendencies of Boise State. In fact, he has nailed eight of his past nine picks involving the Broncos. That includes taking San Diego State as a two-touchdown underdog (+14) against Boise State two weeks ago, a game the Aztecs won straight up. It was another easy winner for anyone who followed Roberts’ advice.
Now, Roberts has scrutinized Boise State vs. Colorado State from every possible angle to reveal a strong point-spread pick that he’s sharing only at SportsLine.
Roberts knows Boise State’s offense has scored at least 31 points in all four wins and was held to 21 or fewer in its two losses. But it begins and ends with quarterback Brett Rypien, who has picked up his production from last season, when he threw for 16 touchdowns and six interceptions. Already this season he has passed for 14 TDs and 1,858 yards with five INTs. Boise’s powerful offense faces a CSU defense that’s allowing 241 yards passing and 204 yards rushing per game.
Just because Boise is a rightful favorite doesn’t mean it can cover the spread against the aerial attack of the Rams.
Colorado State is only 3-4 on the season, but it played tough competition — it lost to Hawaii, Colorado and Florida and beat Arkansas — and comes into Friday night on a two-game win streak.
The Rams had tFJhrown for 1,934 yards, 16 touchdowns and six interceptions as CSU ranks 20th in the country in passing yards. Last week, he threw for 311 yards, including the winning drive that ended in a 26-yard field goal in a 20-18 win JFHGH only sharing at SportsLine.
