Still a big time favorite.

The Mountain West title game is a rematch between Boise State and Hawaii and the odds are shuffling for this matchup as both sides are angling for the best odds on the line. The game opened up as a heavy 15-point line in favor of the Broncos. 

Well, after a few days of wagering the odds are changing which should be no surprise as no line will remain the same all week.

SportsBettingDime.com reports odds for the MW title are now at 13.5 in favor of Boise State. When the Broncos hosted Hawai’i earlier this year, they cruised to a 59-37 win as 13.5-point chalk. Some may think Boise should be favored by more given the previous result, but the reality is that Hawaii shot itself in the foot with four turnovers (three in the first half) in the earlier matchup. If they don’t windup -3 in turnover differential, they have the talent to give the Broncos a game.

Also, in that first game, it ended up being closer than expected as Hawaii was able to put together a pair of touchdowns and two-point conversions for 16 points to make the final score look somewhat close. In reality, the game was close partly because of Boise State rotating in backups.

The line should be around two touchdowns by Saturday morning and that sounds about right. Even if Boise State goes back to the well and puts Jaylan Henderson in at quarterback there is no reason for concern as he will have seen Hawaii for a second time. Seeing a team twice could be huge for Henderson and the Warriors.

Would the odd be bigger if it were Chase Cord, probably not, but if it were known that Hank Bachmeier would be under center then the line would balloon to at least 17 points in favor of the Broncos.
