Air Force vs. Boise St. Week 8 NCAA Lines & Spread Prediction

Gambling Matchup Week 8 – Air Force Falcons vs. Boise St. Broncos

The Boise State Broncos are making their way through the Mountain West Conference for the first time. The Broncos played in the Western Athletic Conference in previous seasons, as this Division I-A (now Football Bowl Subdivision) program worked its way up from the lower divisions.

Spread (ATS): Boise State -31
Over/Under: 65

Boise State has been playing FBS ball for under two decades. The program is still in its formative stages, but you’d never know it by the way the Broncos are carrying themselves on the field. Boise State rolled up 732 yards in its Mountain West debut on October 8 against Colorado State. After playing nonconference games throughout the month of September, BSU strode into a Mountain West venue (Hughes Stadium on the Colorado State campus in Fort Collins, Colorado) and looked very comfortable in its surroundings.

Boise raced to a 35-0 lead, allowed 13 quick points just before halftime, and then uncorked a 28-0 third quarter to put away CSU by 50 points, 63-13. Boise quarterback Kellen Moore might not have been facing a particularly formidable defense, but he was still close to perfect, orchestrating his offense with top-level efficiency. Moore completed 26 of his 30 passes – that’s 86.67 percent if you’re keeping track – for 338 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

The Broncos also outrushed Colorado State by 309 yards, 393 to 84. Boise State delivered a comprehensive beatdown against a lower-tier opponent in the Mountain West, sending the signal that it’s not going to waste time in its first tour of the league. Boise State might jump to the Big East or Big 12 Conference in the world of realignment, but for now, BSU can merely play the teams listed on its schedule, and so far, the Broncos are doing a good job of remaining focused.

The team in Boise State’s way this Saturday is the Air Force Falcons. Coach Troy Calhoun’s team was flying high after beating Navy a few weeks ago, but that win did not sustain any degree of momentum in Colorado Springs. Navy suffered a decisive loss to Notre Dame (59-33) and then crumbled on defense in a 41-27 home-field loss to Mountain West competitor San Diego State.

Air Force’s option offense isn’t easy to defend, and that’s why Boise State might not win by 30 or 40 points.

However, the Falcons’ defense is so vulnerable and thin right now that Boise State should win this game without too much trouble.

College Football Betting Pick: Boise State to win, Air Force to cover.
