College Football Betting Preview:

The UTEP Miners come into at 2-0 after wins against New Mexico State and then the 38-28 win last week against Bethune Cookman. In those two matchups, they looked pretty decent on the ground, putting up an average of 246 total yards, but you have to remember this was against below average opponents.

They’ll now have to travel to Boise and take on this Broncos defense who last season gave up an average of 163.7 rushing yards per game. The pressure will  now be on the Miners Quarterback, Gavin Hardison, and you’ll see him produce some costly turnovers in this one.

Last week Gavin Hardison went 14 of 23 for 183 total yards, 3 touchdowns and no interceptions, but he’s in for a long night going against this Boise State team at home that’s coming off a tough loss against UCF, where they had a 21 point lead.

The Broncos Quarterback Hank Backmeier and Wide Receiver Khalil Shakir will both step it up even more in this one and have big performances.

Boise State gave up 573 total yards to UCF last week while putting up 263 passing yards and a horrible 20 total rushing yards, which is the perfect recipe if you’re looking to loss the game.

Texas El Paso is 1-5 against the spread in their last 6 games against an opponent in the Mountain West and the total has gone over in 7 of UTEP’s last 9 games when playing as the underdog.

Boise State is 8-1 straight up in their last 9 games at home and the total has gone over in 5 of the Broncos last 7 games played in week 2.
