Boise State usually takes on a couple of Power 5 teams a year and they have certainly won their fair share of games. The line in this one indicates an upset is likely not in the offing.
Washington State has been a PAC 12 sleeper since Mike Leach took over. His offense is always humming and since they decided to play defense they can really compete.
Boise State Broncos
Troy gave Boise State a game last week. The Broncos won and covered but it took a touchdown with just over 2 minutes left to put the game out of reach. A win is a win but it might have created a QB controversy.
Brett Rypien has been very good since arriving on campus with an NFL name. He was not good in this one but guess who was, former Jayhawk QB Montell Cozart. Cozart is definitely the better athlete.
Whatever margin the Broncos might have had against Troy is slimmer this week on the road. It will be interesting to see what the coaching staff decides to do. My guess is that both will play which could be an extra wrinkle in a very creative offense.
Washington State Cougars
There is no controversy at Washington State where Luke Falk leads the team for what feels like his 8th season. He was good in the opener and there is every reason to think he will put up more gaudy numbers this season.
I eluded to the WSU defense in the intro. They pitched a shutout last week but that was against Montana State. This will be much more of a challenge – still giving up less than 150 yards of offense is impressive.
Last year Boise won by three at home so you can bet the Cougars will want to return the favour. They do have a league game next week but I do not think Oregon State is going to divide their attention too much.

This is a pretty big number to me. Boise faced the better competition in week one but Wazzu definitely looked better. Boise State is often an underdog darling but there could be some mythology there. They have not been an underdogs since the final game of 2014.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Washington State
Normally I am all about a good underdog story but I think in this case backing Boise might be forcing it. Still it might be wise to buy a half point.
Look for the Broncos to be chasing the Cougars in the secondary and for the WSU defense to get enough stops to pressure Boise State into being one dimensional.
