Western Kentucky vs. South Alabama Expert Betting Predictions

Boise State didn’t play well against the Fresno State Bulldogs in the Mountain West Championship, but Fresno entered the game on fire.

In the Frisco Bowl, Boise plays a team with a decent offense but one that doesn’t play much defense. If you’re a Mean Green backer, you can’t feel good about facing dual-threat quarterback Taylen Green and running back George Holani.

Both guys can take it to the house on any given carry. If Green must throw the ball, he has the ability. But against North Texas, Green and Holani should control things from the first possession.

Boise State’s defense will contain the Mean Green offense. The spread is high but the Broncos can cover. Boise State is the play.
