Boise State Broncos vs Arizona State Sun Devils Odds, Prediction, and Pick
If anyone paid attention to what head coach Chris Petersen recently said about the BCS, you'll see that this is one coach who is fired up about the situation that his team is constantly put in. Boise State is one of the best teams in the country, and is currently ranked 8th right now. The team has an 11-1 overall record, and has one of the best quarterbacks in the country as well. So why are they NOT playing in a BCS Bowl, but are instead up against a team who is 6-6, and finished with a conference record of 4-5? It could potentially have something to do with how crazy the BCS is. Many people feel that it is time for a change from this way of deciding bowl games, but we won't see it happening this year, and now we get to see Boise against Arizona State.
The Broncos are definitely the favorites, but the team seems to get no love from anywhere right now. Sure, they lost to TCU, but the Horned Frogs are a top 20 team themselves this year. 11-1 is nothing to be upset about, and the Sun Devils will be in for a tough one. Speaking of Arizona State, they ended the year on a four game losing streak, going down to the likes of Washington State (4-8), and Arizona (4-8). Arizona State will need to get it figured out before it's too late, but fortunately for them they'll have a few weeks to do so. This bowl game is the MAACO Bowl, and will kick off at 8:00pm EST on December 22, 2011. On top of that, we love our free bowl game betting pick here as well.

Going against the Broncos is tough in almost any game, and it will be even tougher in this bowl game. Chris Petersen and Kellen Moore are a top tandem, and this team has the potential to light up the scoreboard early and often. On the other side of things though, Arizona State has not looked anywhere near the team that they were expected to be to start the year, and it has been quite a disappointment. So we have one team with a high powered offense, which has quickly become one of the most respected programs out there, against a team who has lost four games straight and is showing no signs of life. I love the Broncos to win this one in impressive fashion. I'll take Boise by three touchdowns.

Boise State has found themselves as big favorites in many games this year, and I'm actually a bit surprised that they are only -13 against a struggling Arizona State team who is in the Pac-12 conference. Not only that, but the Sun Devils are in the South Division, which is quite a bit weaker than the North Division. I think that Chris Petersen's team comes out and makes a statement that they deserve to be in that BCS bowl, and wins big. I'm picking the Boise State Broncos here.
- Pick: Boise State Broncos -13
