College Football BettingWith a third straight undefeated season within their reach, No. 4 Boise State will continue its fight to gain recognition in the BCS rankings Friday with a visit from Fresno State. The Broncos have won nine straight to open their 2010 schedule, and earned some respect by blowing away Idaho 52-14 in their last college football betting outing.

Odds: Boise State - 33

That win combined with TCU nearly falling to San Diego State in their worst game of the season has left an opening for Boise State in the top-three. The Broncos have already moved in to third spot in the AP polls, but will need a strong finish to their season to have any chance at securing an automatic bid in a BCS bowl game, beginning this Friday night against the Bulldogs.

NCAA Football Betting Preview: Fresno State

The Bulldogs are coming off a close loss to Nevada in which they almost pulled off a major upset before giving up the go-ahead touchdown with 4:51 remaining to fall behind 35-34 in a game that had seven lead changes. Fresno State has now lost 12 straight games to ranked teams, and will have an even harder time rebounding against a Boise State team that is favored by 31 football betting points. This will be the Bulldogs’ final road trip before consecutive home dates against Idaho and Illinois to close out the season.

NCAA Football Betting Preview: Boise State

Although they still trail the Horned Frogs in the BCS rankings, the Broncos still have three more games to play and are in control of whether or not they crack the top-three. A loss from either No. 1 Oregon or No. 2 Auburn next week would change the outlook dramatically, but for now Boise State has to concentrate on what they do control. Anything less than a blowout win will not be acceptable for quarterback Kellen Moore and his teammates. Moore remains the nation’s highest-rated passer with a 191.2 rating, and has thrown at least three touchdowns in five of his last seven outings. The Broncos rank second in both points scored and points allowed, and will need to show the nation why under the Friday night lights.

The Match Up: Fresno State @ Boise State

The Broncos have just two losses in their last 71 conference games, and although one of them was to Fresno State, that shouldn’t have any significance reading in to this NCAAF betting game. The Ducks and Tigers are both off this week so there will be no openings in the top-two, but if Boise State can cover the spread this week there is a good chance they can pass TCU for No. 3, or at the least continue to close the slim margin between the teams.
