BOISE ST over Con­necti­cut by 31

Like we said, it’s just not in our blood to back 30-point chalk but this one has a siren call sim­i­lar to the Okie State game. There’s no deny­ing UConn is one of the worst teams in the coun­try. The Huskies are not 3-10 SU un­der sec­ond-term HC Randy Ed­sall and have lost 6 games in a row dat­ing back to last sea­son. The ATS ar­chives con­cur: Con­necti­cut is 0-5-1 ATS in Game Two, 0-4 ATS after UCF, and 1-6 ATS as non-con­fer­ence dogs of 10 or more points. There goes that hand again. As for­tune would have it, though, we dis­cov­ered Boise State’s costly 0-4-1 ATS fail­ure in its last five ap­pear­ances as non-con­fer­ence home chalk, as well as a 2-6 ATS mark on the blue turf be­tween road games. Look, the Bron­cos’ 36-point win at Troy wasn’t as im­pres­sive in the stats where they barely edged the Tro­jans 416-379 – in spite of re­cov­er­ing 4 turnovers. Well, we talked our­selves out of lay­ing the points again. Stay true to your rule.
