Boise State Broncos vs. Fresno State Bulldogs
NCAAB Basketball: Wednesday, February 13th 2019 10:30 PM EST TIME
The Boise State Broncos are looking for a miracle here as they are needing some luck here on Wednesday night as they take on the Fresno State Bulldogs. As for the Dogs, they have been impressive so far this season.
The Boise State Broncos are looking to continue their strong offensive ways into Fresno State as this Cali trip could either push them to the top or drop them back to the bottom. In the recent game for the Broncos, Boise State would drop a huge win against San Jose State with the final score ending in 105-57. In the win, it was Derrick Alston who had a career-high 33 points. The home win was very impressive as 105 points was a season-high for the Broncos and the first 100-point game since Nov. 10, 2017 last season. Can they keep that offense going against a tough Bulldogs team now? Also adding to the win was RJ Williams who had 22 points as well as Alec Hobbs one of the leaders who had 17 points.

In the historic win, Boise State ended up shooting 62.7 percent from the field thanks to a 40-of-64 effort. The field goal percentage was the highest for the team since shooting 64.2 percent against AF back in 2004. The Broncos come into this game with being 3-6 on the road this season.
The second place Fresno State Bulldogs are hoping to get into that top spot, and they can only do that if they continue the win for the rest of the season. They come into this game with an impressive 8-3 in conference play, sharing the No. 2 spot with Utah State. The Aggies are right on their tail and have a clash with them soon, so these winnable games are still very important. The Bulldogs have been catching on fire as of late as they have won three of its last four games, most recently getting the 83-65 win on the road against the UNLV Rebels.
BULLDOGS WIN 🚨
Braxton Huggins scored a game-high 31 POINTS in today's matchup with the Rebels‼️

One of the reasons why the Bulldogs have been impressive on both sides of the ball has been due to their leading players. Those would be Braxton Huggins who is dropping 18 points per game as well as Deshon Taylor who is getting 16 points per game.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.
Full-Game Side Bet
I’m siding with the Bulldogs here as they have been impressive and will be able to slow down the Broncos. Especially when the Broncos are 4-9 ATS in the last 13 meetings. Game might get close, but the defense lies with the Bulldogs here.
Full-Game Total Pick
The last time the Broncos hit 100 points, they hit the Under in the next game. Expect a strong bulldogs team to get back into play and control the ball early. The Under is 6-1 in Bulldogs last 7 games following a ATS win as well as 4-1 in Bulldogs last 5 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
