Only once has Nevada lost by more than 20 points this season. That came in a road game against Washington State five games ago. After that loss, Ty Gangi took over at quarterback. The Wolf Pack have averaged 35 points in their last four games with Gangi under center. Gangi has a 10-to-1 touchdown-to-interception ratio in his last three games. The Wolf Pack have covered each of those last three games, including losing by just two points to Colorado State as 25-point road ‘dogs.  This is a much bigger game for Nevada than it is for Boise State. The Wolf Pack treat this game as a rivalry. They’ve had two weeks to prepare following a bye last week. The Broncos have a much bigger game on tap playing at Colorado State next week.  Boise State is more about defense than offense this season.

The Broncos rank 103rd in yards per game. They aren’t built to cover lopsided spreads like this especially against good passing teams. The Broncos average just under 30 points a game.  Nevada is 7-1-1 ATS during its last nine November games. Boise State is a brutal 0-12-1 ATS as a home favorite and 0-10 ATS in its last 10 home contests.  (Editor’s note: Stephen Nover is 11-4 on his last 15 college football plays. His Saturday card is headed by his ACC Total of the Year.)

Boise State vs. San Diego State Point Spread Pick from Mark Franco: October 14th 2017

Off to its best start since 1975 and armed with its highest ranking since 1978, unbeaten San Diego State has its sights set on a New Year’s Six bowl. The 18th-ranked Aztecs face perhaps their biggest obstacle in that regard when they host Boise State in Mountain West play on Saturday night.

The Aztecs, led by Heisman Trophy contender Rashaad Penny, have won back-to-back Mountain West championships, but head coach Rocky Long says most people east of the Rocky Mountains “know who Boise State is and they don’t know who the rest of us are. … Those people associate our league with Boise because of history.” Never mind, as Long is quick to point out, that the Broncos, also known for their home blue “Smurf Turf”, have reached the Mountain West title game just once in the past four years and have lost five league games over the last two years.

Broncos are 2-8 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. Aztecs are 11-4-1 ATS in their last 16 games following a ATS win. Broncos are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 meetings.
