Boise State is the underdog in the 2014 Fiesta Bowl

The Vegas oddsmakers have the Arizona Wildcats as the favorites heading into the New Years Eve match up

Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

The No. 20 ranked Boise State Broncos are going to be underdogs in the Fiesta Bowl if the betting lines hold. The opening lines between the Broncos and the #10 Arizona Wildcats opened Monday with Arizona a 4-point favorite. That has since dropped to 3 points over the Broncos. That’s just the kind of odds a blue collar team like Boise State likes---the kind that puts a chip on their shoulders and with something to prove.

Boise State is 7-6 against the spread and Arizona is 5-8. But the Boise State offense has been firing on all cylinders the last 8 games and has racked up a series of strong finishes and are now ranked the 14th best total offense in the nation. They go up against Arizona’s #74 pass defense and #121 rated rush defense. Expect the Wildcats to fall short of keeping Broncos QB Grant Hedrick and the J-train corralled.

All-time bowl records: Boise State, 9-5-0; Arizona, 8-9-1.
