I'm liking Boise St -9 / under 53.5  for a few reasons. 
 
The first reason is the rain that is expected to be falling during the game.  I would expect Boise to use ball control and run often to control the clock. 
 
The second reason is I feel that Boise will be able to manage Tulsa's passing game with the return of Boise's defensive leader Kyle Wilson.  He is also their top punt returner.  With him in the lineup the first 4 games Boise has only given up 163 passing yds/gm, 2 TDs and has 9 INTS. 
 
I think this game will be like Boise's game vs Oregon.  Rushing, Time of Possesion and Defense.
 
I'm thinking the score would probably be something like 24-10, 28-14, 33-17.  Somewhere in those ranges
 
Just my 2cents for what it is worth.

I understand, but doesn't the rain and a lot of running always favor the underdog?

I mean, it is big plays that kill home dogs...

Not at all.  In this case, I feel the rain actually hurts Tulsa and helps Boise St.  I feel they will be able to run the ball better than Tulsa and will have more success passing.

It seems like they will blast Tulsa since they displayed a garbage for brains game last week. It was a dirty win last week and im sure theyll come out and pound Tulsa for the BCS polls and garbage. Ive seen game where Boise plays garbage on week (still win) and then blow out their opponents the following week. Anyways, if its not pouring like that Mizz game, Boise should throw the ball nicely.
 
Just my thoughts... taking Boise St first half -5.5

I agree 100% !

Also: of the remaining Boise games, this is the most important. The remaining schedule for Boise will be pretty easy and ow that they are #5, they are definedlty thinking BCS Championship. Also add the fact that they had 11 days to prepare after a not impressing game vs UC Davis. They know they have to show up under this National TV spot.

Good Luck !

Note the big play (5 unit) is on Boise with the smaller play (2 unit) on the under.
