4* LAS VEGAS BOWL OVER/UNDER CRUSHER
Arizona State vs. Boise State,
12/22/2011 20:00 EDT,
Score: 24 - 56
Total: -110/+67½ Over
Both of these teams feature an offensive attack that loves to throw the football. Boise State comes in averaging 43.3 ppg behind 310.3 passing yards, while Arizona State averaged 33.9 ppg behind 310.2 passing yards.
Boise State's Kellen Moore finished the regular season with 3,507 yards with 41 touchdowns to just 7 interceptions. Moore and the Broncos offense will take on an Arizona State defense that ranks 105th against the pass (271.3 ypg)!
Arizona State's Brock Osweiler threw for 3,541 yards with 24 touchdowns to 12 interceptions. Over his last three games, Osweiler averaged 367.3 ypg through the air. The Broncos defense finished 25th in the country against the pass (195.5), but that number is a bit misleading.
Boise State didn't exactly play a lot of great passing offenses this season. If you are looking for proof that the Broncos are overrated against the pass, look at the 473 yards they allowed to TCU and the 350 they allowed the following week to San Diego State.
*Note that both of those games against TCU and San Diego State went well over the total posted for this game.
The OVER is 16-5 in Sun Devils last 21 games overall and 6-2 in Broncos last 8 games as a favorite of 10.5 or greater. BET THE OVER 67.5!
