Boise State is an early 5.5-point favorite against Washington in the Vegas Bowl

Otto Kitsinger III

The Broncos are favored by nearly a touchdown in a bowl game against a Pac-12 team, which is an amazing feat, especially considering this year's version of Boise State team. The official line is Boise State by 5.5. Consider the spread a credit to the Broncos' reputation and a product of Washington losing an 18-point lead to Washington State their last time out.

Is 5.5 points a fair number? Share your thoughts in the comments and in the poll, or just bogart my thoughts: I think the line could be lower, closer to a field goal than a touchdown. Boise State's biggest games this year have come down to four points (Michigan State), one point (BYU), 10 points (Fresno), two points (SDSU), and six points (Nevada). Kind of figures this one will be the same, right?

One thing's for sure, it will probably be low scoring since most Boise State games against non-MW dregs have been this season. To wit, the oddsmakers have placed the combined points at over/under 46.

Ipso facto, the Vegas betting prediction: Boise State 26, Washington 20.

(That scoreline might require four field goals from Boise State. Be careful with your money, you guys.)
