Pick Against the Spread: Boise State -5½ (-110)

After a 3-3 start to the season, Boise State got rolling, winning five straight. However, that progress was halted by a 66-61 loss to Washington State. College basketball lines only had the Broncos as three-point underdogs, which they did not cover but managed to keep the game close.

Luckily, the loss to Washington State was not the last game before conference play started. Boise State had a good game against Utah Valley, which it took full advantage of. The Broncos covered a 10½-point spread in the win.

Two players averaging just over 11 points per game came up big for Boise State in that last win. Max Rice put up 22 points, while O’mar Stanley had 20, in big games for the team’s third- and fourth-leading scorers.

Their improvement can help in college basketball predictions, as Boise State already has Chibuzo Agbo and Tyson Degenhart averaging over 14.5 points per game.

Over/Under Pick: Under 138 1/2 (-110)

In San Jose State’s last game, it went up against the worst defense in the Mountain West, Wyoming, which was allowing 73 points per game. The Spartans managed to score 73 points in that loss.

Now, the Spartans will be facing Boise State, which allows 65.9 points per game and ranks fourth in the conference. That is a big test for the San Jose State offense, averaging 75.5 points per game. Boise State is not much better offensively at 75.8 points per game, and both schools are in the bottom half of the conference.

On top of that, to help college basketball odds keep leaning toward the under, this will be Boise State’s first conference game of the season, which can lead to low offensive production.

Team Prop Pick: Both teams to Score 65+ (No -136)

This game is leaning towards hitting the under because it is Boise State’s first conference game, with it having a pretty solid defense. While San Jose State’s offense has been solid, against Boise State’s defense, it could have some trouble. It will be difficult for both teams to score more than 65 points.
