NCAAF Week 4: Boise State Broncos at Fresno State Bulldogs (-2)

Past history: The last time Fresno State won or covered against Boise State was 2005. Since then, the Broncos are 7-0 straight up and ATS.

Early look at the Broncos: This game and a season-opening trip to Washington (the Huskies are favored by 2.5 points) are the toughest games standing between the Broncos and another undefeated season. The season-win total sits at just 9.5, though, so oddsmakers aren’t as optimistic as in the past.

Early look at the Bulldogs: Head coach Tim DeRuyter enters his second year with the program off a surprising nine win campaign last year. Senior QB Derek Carr chose to put the NFL on hold to return, so expectations are high.

Where this line will move: The public knows Boise State and has forgotten about the Bulldogs. If the Broncos can beat Washington for the second straight game and enter this game unbeaten then the Broncos will be favored at kickoff.
