The San Diego State Aztecs and Boise State Broncos clash Friday night in a week 5 college football contest at Albertsons Stadium. The Boise State Broncos also look to improve to 3-2 on the season. The San Diego State Aztecs look to get a game above a .500 record.

Latrell Caples and Stefan Cobbs have combined for 228 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns, while George Holani has 11 receptions.

Jesse Matthews and Tyrell Shavers have combined for 133 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns, while Mark Redman has 6 receptions.

The Aztecs are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Broncos are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 35-16-1 in Aztecs last 52 games overall. The under is 10-1 in Broncos last 11 games overall. The Aztecs are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 meetings. The underdog is 7-0 ATS in their last 7 meetings.

The Boise State Broncos are going to be favored more times than not at home, but they’ve been shaky at best through 4 games and their offense has been nonexistent. The San Diego State Aztecs aren’t as good defensively as they’ve been in years past, but they’re still an average unit, and they have a top-20 rushing offense. It’s not always pretty, but SDSU can grind games out and are still a physical team. Boise State needs to find some offense before I can lay chalk, even at home. Boise State is 122nd in total offense and 107th in scoring offense. Give me the points with the Aztecs.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
