San Diego State is 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 games and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 Tuesday games. The under is 5-1 in San Diego State’s last 6 games. Boise State is 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 0-6-1 ATS in their last 7 games. The over is 4-1 in Boise State’s last 5 games. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.
Both of these teams are at the top of the Mountain West standings, but San Diego State has a two game lead on the Broncos. Boise State had a very poor showing in their last game, but they will be at home for this matchup. San Diego State continues to win on the road, but they have only won their last three road games by two points each. These two teams have very similar metrics, but I think the home court advantage will be the difference. I like Boise State here.
