2022 Mountain West Title Game Odds: Boise State Opens As A Slight Favorite
Broncos are a slim 3.5-point favorite.
Home field is the edge.
The oddsmakers opened up betting odds for the Mountain West title game this year which features Fresno State taking on Boise State at Albertson’s Stadium.
The last time these two teams met it was Boise State running away over Freson State, 40-20, but there were injuries involved in that game. Most notably Bulldogs quarterback Jake Haener did not play.
Even with the lopsided results, the consensus line is Boise State as a 3.5-point favorite. That basically means it would be a pick’em on a neutral field with a very slight edge to the Broncos.
Both teams have played extremely well since their early season losses. Boise State is 8-0 in league play and Fresno State is 7-1 with its only loss being to the Broncos back on Oct. 9.
The game is also expected to feature a decent amount of points as the over/under has moved from 50.5 to 53.5. These two combined for 60 when they played earlier this year.
Boise State’s defense is really good this year and one of the best around but so is the Fresno State offense is also outstanding when fully healthy. The Broncos offense has shown time to score a lot of points but also has stalled at times settling for field goals.
There will be opportunities against a Fresno State defense that has players but also has given up points this season with four games of giving up 30 or more points, and 40 twice. In those games, the Bulldogs are 1-3.
We will have more betting insight and picks later in the week so stay tuned for that and all over our Mountain West title game coverage.
