Moneyline Pick- Boise State +120

This game could be on upset watch, with the college basketball spread already set so close. However, expect Boise State to cover the spread and win the game straight up. The Broncos have the talent to do so and could use their big win over San José State to get another over Colorado State.

In that win over San José State, Boise State had a massive game from O’mar Stanley, who had 30 points and 11 rebounds. Stanley only averages 12.9 points and 5.4 rebounds, which makes his production unreliable when facing Colorado State.

However, the play of Chibuzo Agbo and Tyson Degenhart is much more consistent. They are averaging over 15 points, with Degenhart having 21 in the win over San José State while Agbo added 15.

Only one other player scored in the game for Boise State. Max Rice put up 12 points, but that was enough to get the win and cover the spread. The Broncos have the talent to upset Colorado State, and they have to rely on those four players to make it an option for college basketball picks.

 

Over/Under Pick: Over 146

This could be a close game, but the defense might not lead the way. Despite both teams being decent on that end of the court – Boise State is allowing 65.9 points per game and Colorado State is at 68.8 – each program has a better offense.

Boise State has the offensive talent to make a push for the over in college basketball odds, but it just has to rely on the four core players. The Broncos have hit the over in five of the last nine games, including the two most recent wins.

On top of that, Colorado State has been one of the best offenses in the Mountain West. The Rams average the most points per game in the conference (83.3). A big reason for that is Isaiah Stevens, who is averaging 17.6 points and 7.4 assists.

 

Team Prop Pick: Boise State 1st Half Winner (Ev)

Boise State is the home team in this matchup, and if it is going to have the chance of pulling the upset over Colorado State, winning the first half will be crucial. The Broncos have the players to pull the upset off, and being at home could be a factor in that, which could help lead them to win the first half.
