First Friday night in College Football and HRWager has a Free Pick to invest in right now. Chris Petersen’s return to Boise is on for a prime time national audience. The Broncos are returning an over achieving team that got a Fiesta Bowl win but lost to Ole Miss and the Air Force. So the course of two universities could be decided by this opener. Washington at Boise State has been instilled as a 10 1/2 point home favorite. Can they pull off the home cover or are the Huskies the path to profit September 4th?
Chemistry Issues Overcame
Part of the problem with the Huskies 8-6 season last year was holdouts from the regime before Petersen’s. Some left and others got bounced during the year. Now more of these are recruits of his so the chemistry issues are due to improve. What needs more help than attitude is their offensive line. Only what could be considered one full time starter is back. They have suitable skilled position replacements to open up the season but if a porous line lets in penetration than the Huskies could struggle on the Smurf Turf.
Reaction from Boise about this one is polarizing. Some will always remember this pioneer of Broncos’ football. Others iterated that Chris left a team in decline, took recruits with them, and had an overly simplistic offense at the end of this. They quote that this is now the Harsin Era as witness by the Fiesta Bowl win. With emotion holding sway, both teams will be sky high for this one. Revenge is in the plans for Boise State but they can not cover a double digit spread against Washington. The HRWager Free Pick for this one is the Huskies + 10 1/2. Good fortune with this one and we will talk to you tomorrow about more college football here at HRWager.
