Bet on the NFLCollege football handicappers will have a phenomenal mid-major NCAAF betting matchup on Wednesday as Tulsa hosts 5th ranked Boise State. College football fans are expecting a lot of points in this one as these two teams are among the most explosive in NCAAF betting.
The Boise State Broncos continue to earn college football respect as they now have a NCAAF betting record of 5-0 straight up and 4-1 against the spread. Boise State ranks 5th overall in college football betting for points scored and features a well balanced offense. Quarterback Kellen Moore has been one of the best in all of college football with 1217 yards passing with 13 touchdowns and just 2 interceptions.
He has a 69% completion rate. Running back Jeremy Avery has 442 yards with a 6.1 yards per carry average. And the receiver combination of Austin Pettis and Titus Young is one of the best 1-2 combinations in college football. The Bulldogs are the prohibitive favorite to win the Western Athletic Conference.
The Tulsa Golden Hurricane has a college football record of 4-1 straight up and 3-1-1 against the spread. Their only loss was a 0-45 blowout at Oklahoma on September 19. Tulsa loves to throw the football and quarterback GJ Kinne is off to a great college football start with 1142 yards passing with 10 touchdowns and just 2 interceptions. The Tulsa ground attack has not been impressive but their defense ranks a solid 21st in college football for points allowed. The Golden Hurricanes have not allowed a rushing touchdown this year. Tulsa is the defending West Division champions of Conference USA.
Although known for their famed “Blue Carpet” home field advantage Boise State has gotten the money in 7 out of their last 8 college football road games. A sellout crowd is expected at Tulsa for this one and the Golden Hurricanes are focused. “We have a tremendous challenge ahead of us, but its an exciting time,” said Tulsa head coach Todd Graham. Five of Tulsa’s final seven opponents were bowl teams from last year. These two teams are former WAC rivals from 2001-2004.
