The Boise State Broncos are headed to the Las Vegas Bowl to play the Washington Huskies out of the Pac-12 and have opened as 6-point favorites. That line has since moved to 5 1/2 on some gaming sites, including Five Dimes, Bet Online and Just Bet, according to the latest odds from Odds Shark. The over/under opened at 46.

Boise State (10-2) was tough to get a read on this season, finishing the regular season an even 6-6 against the spread. The Broncos failed to cover in a win their last time out as a 7.5-point favorite over the Nevada Wolfpack. The Huskies were 7-5 overall and 7-5 against the spread.

Boise State won the Mountain West with a 7-1 conference record, due mainly to a defense that emerged as one of the best in the country. The Broncos rank No. 9 in the nation in total defense.

The Maaco Las Vegas Bowl between the Boise State Broncos and Washington Huskies takes place on Dec. 22.
