Boise State vs. Toledo Betting Line

The Boise State vs. Toledo betting line had the Broncos set as big -20 favorites on the road.  A road team getting a spread like that?  Well, this is BSU after all. 

Sportsbook.com Line & Total: Boise State -20 & 60

Opening Lines & Total: BSU -17 & 59

Well-rested Boise State looks to show off its high-flying offense Friday night against a Toledo squad that nearly beat Ohio State in Columbus.

The Rockets outgained OSU, but committed 14 penalties and were 3-of-16 on third downs in the 27-22 loss. They can’t afford to be sloppy again Friday, because the Broncos make teams pay for mistakes. QB Kellen Moore was 16-of-22 for 267 yards and 3 first-half TD in last year’s 57-14 rout of Toledo, which committed five turnovers on the blue turf. The Broncos are 18-3 ATS in non-home games since 2008, and will put on a show for the national TV audience.

Moore lit up Georgia for 261 yards and 3 TD in BSU’s opening win on Sept. 3. In typical Moore fashion, he spread the wealth to a bevy of receivers as seven players caught multiple passes and nobody had more than six of the team’s 28 receptions. The rushing attack was disappointing as Doug Martin only gained 57 yards on 24 attempts (2.4 YPC). Last year, Martin averaged 97 rushing yards per game and a whopping 6.3 YPC. The ground game could be missing fullback Dan Paul who is questionable with a groin injury. The Broncos could get a boost with the possible returns of WR Geraldo Boldewijn and S Cedric Febis who were suspended by the NCAA for undisclosed reasons.

The Rockets have never hosted a top-10 team, but they will get their chance Friday against No. 4Boise State. For Toledo to keep this contest competitive, WR Eric Page will continue to be the main target in the passing game. Page caught 12 passes for 145 yards and 2 TD against what many consider to be a great Ohio State defense, so he should have no trouble getting open against the Broncos secondary. The ground game should have an easier time chewing up yards against BSU than it did against Ohio State. Toledo gained just 46 yards on 30 carries against the Buckeyes.
