The Pick

Boise State +2.5

Many have the Broncos pegged as the favorites to retake the Mountain West Conference, and they have a talented quarterback in Hank Bachmeier that averaged 260 passing yards per game a year ago. The Beavers finished 87th in pass defense in the FBS last year. Boise State has a solid defense that should contain Oregon State, while they should be able to take advantage of a leaky secondary.
