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.
