BYU will try to snap an 0-3 SUATS run, which includes a 42-35 defeat to the Nevada Wolf Pack as 10-point home favorites last Saturday, while going OVER the betting total for a fourth consecutive affair.  The Cougars racked up 601 total yards in that affair, which can’t be ignored when making your Week 9 college football predictions, as they notched a season-high 63 pass attempts.  BYU is 0-5 ATS in its last five non-conference games, while the OVER is on a 4-0 run in that situation.

The Cougars have taken a downward turn since starting quarterback Taysom Hill went down with a season-ending injury, which is important to consider when looking over the college football betting lines, but senior Christian Stewart is starting to grow under center.  He had career highs with 39 completions and 408 yards last week, while also managing to throw four touchdowns.  Defensively, the team came up with eight pass breakups, which tied a season high that was set earlier against Virginia in Week 4.

Boise State improved to 12-5 SU all-time against Fresno State in picking up a 37-27 victory last Friday, while capturing the statistical battle by a triple-digit margin for a fourth consecutive contest.  The Broncos are 42-12 SU all-time in non-Saturday games, including a 35-7 mark during the regular season.  It’s important to point out that the program has won 52 of its last 53 October affairs—not losing at Albertsons Stadium in that situation since 1998.  The OVER is 8-2 in the squad’s last 10 games after accumulating more than 200 yards rushing in its previous contest.

The Broncos will be focused on avenging last year’s 37-20 defeat to the Cougars as 6.5-point road underdogs, as they were out-gained by a 568-499 margin.  Boise State will try to control the football with running back Jay Ajayi, who ran for 158 yards on 30 carries last time out and he’s the 16th player in school history to amass 200 career points.

Sports bettors will likely back the Broncos due to the Cougars being 2-6 ATS in their last eight true road games.
