The Boise State Broncos (6-0) hit the road to face the BYU Cougars (2-4) at LaVell Edwards Stadium Saturday in Provo, Utah at 10:15 p.m. ET. Here, we'll break down the Boise State vs. BYU odds and lines, with college football betting picks and tips.
The Broncos lost QB Hank Bachmeier (hip) to an injury early against Hawaii last week, but sophomore QB Chase Cord stepped in and was more than capable. He is expected to make his first start Saturday.
The Cougars have fallen in three consecutive games, including a disappointing showing at South Florida last week. They need to go 4-2 in the final six games for bowl eligibility.

Boise State 38, BYU 20
Moneyline ( ?)
Boise State (-257) heads down to Utah looking to stay in the driver's seat for top spot among Group of Five teams. This is just too much chalk to eat; however, and BYU (+210) has no prayer to win outright.
Against the Spread ( ?)
The BRONCOS (-6.5, -106) are a tasty play on the road against the stumbling Cougars, as Cord proved he is more than capable of running the offense in Bachmeier's stead. Boise State has a solid one-two backfield punch with RBs Robert Mahone (75-375-5) and George Holani (65-366-1), while WRs John Hightower (24-444-5), Khalil Shakir (29-414-3) and CT Thomas (20-355-3) are great targets to help Cord cut it.
Over/Under ( ?)
Boise State has plenty of stars on offense, and it ranks 16th in the nation with 488.2 total yards per game. The Broncos could take care of the OVER 46.5 ( -115) themselves, even if BYU doesn't show up.
