The Boise St. Broncos are favored by seven touchdowns over the New Mexico Lobos on Saturday. It is certainly an attainable goal.
The Boise St. Broncos complete their first season as a member of the Mountain West Conference with a game that should be an easy win. They host the 1-10 New Mexico Lobos on Saturday in Boise. The Broncos opened the game as 48.5 point favorites over the Lobos, according to Odds Shark, and that has moved to a clean 49 points on later lines.
Sure, that line does look like a tall order for the Broncos to cover, but look at the scores that the Lobos have lost by: 52-3 to Arkansas, 59-13 to Texas Tech, 49-7 to Nevada, 69-0 to TCU, 42-0 to Air Force. The Broncos are comparable to Arkansas and TCU this season and can certainly put up 50-plus points on the Lobos (even if backups play for long portions of the game).
The over/under opened and has remained at 61 points, so the Lobos are expected to at least score a few points. Whatever happens, it's going to be a long day for the Lobos.
