The home team has gone 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between the Air Force Falcons and Boise State Broncos. The Air Force Falcons are coming off a big win over the Colorado Buffaloes on the road, but Boise State is a far superior team. The Broncos have a stud under center in Hank Bachmeier, and I don’t think that Air Force has the athletes to run with the Boise State playmakers. Air Force also runs the traditional triple-option offense, but the Broncos have seen it multiple times in the past, and their defense is once again very good and should cause some problems on their home turf. Final Score Prediction, Boise State Broncos win and cover ATS 31-14.
