Coming off an upset that was entertaining win in Tallahassee that comprised 18-point comeback and a over here the Boise State Broncos broken up to the AP Top-25. They are a team, earning credit for beating on a Power 5 group on the road, using a brand new starting quarterback and running back in the helm. That standing has been rewarded with a 10.5 line across the Marshall Thundering Herd this week.
The optimism around the Broncos is understandable. They punted only 3 occasions against the Seminoles, who own a family brand which garners respect. And Hank Bachmeier, also their freshman quarterback appeared the part.
But they are getting premium points to get beating what’s been a team under Willie Taggart. Also as Bachmeier and running Robert Mahone played on the road, there are enough warning signs to mention that the 10.5 line against Marshall is high.
We can start on crime. It took him 51 attempts to achieve that figure, and had one touchdown throw to go with a single interception Even though Bachmeier had 407 yards. He owned downs to an extreme speed, completing eight of 12 passes for 136 yards.
This was not an explosive offense, and the Thundering Herd can react by forcing the crime to assault more often with coverages that are aggressive.
Their run defense was much suspect than the raw figures indicate. The Seminoles had several losses that are self-inflicted, together with minus-49 yards in the floor between sacks around James Blackman, failed rushes, and their abominable 24-yard loss on one rush. Those totals created their accumulative rush defense seem much better than Cam Akers’ 15 carries for 116 yards and a touchdown.
While the Broncos were impressive and strong, the Seminoles made.
Marshall is currently coming from a blowout win. But we can deduce they have sets of legs at the backfield to generate worthy rushers from a opponent that is much better. Sophomore Isaiah Green is a valid dual-threat capable of hitting large downfield and stretching drives throws to cancel some of his consistency issues.
The game will be won by boise State, but I am taking Marshall to cover thanks to plethora of playmakers and their very own explosive offense.
Offense and better entire field compared to the Seminoles. The more is attractive if Boise does start to roll with turnovers. Both crimes are capable of dangling 30 on each other, so 56.5 seems very low.
Very best bet: Marshall +12.5 and Over 56.5 in -105 at Heritage at -105
