Utah vs Boise State 2010 Las Vegas Bowl Picks: The 2010 Maaco Las Vegas Bowl (Wednesday, December 22nd at 8:00PM ET on ESPN) will feature two teams that were at one point both near the top of the 2010 BCS standings. The #19 Utah Utes (10-2) will take on their old rivals, the #10 Boise State Broncos (11-1). The Broncos missed out on a chance to play in a BCS Bowl game when they lost to UNLV on a couple of bad kicks, and the rest was history. The Utes come into this game with an injured starting quarterback, and they have announced Terrance Cain, who has a 9-1 record career record, as their starter for this game.

The Utah defense is in for their toughest challenge of the season since having to face the TCU Horned Frogs. Containing the Boise State aerial attack is easier said than done, and Kellen Moore has something to prove after finishing last amongst the Heisman Trophy finalists earlier this month. The Utes’ defense ranks 23rd in scoring defense, allowing 19.8 points per game, but to think that they can hold the Broncos to less than 20 points is down-right unrealistic. The NCAA football odds at SBGGlobal.com have the #10 Boise State Broncos (-17) (-110) as 2010 Las Vegas Bowl picks selection over the #19 Utah Utes (+17) (-110).

The Utes will have to light up the scoreboard against the Broncos and they have what it takes to put some points on the board, but they’ll be facing a Boise State defense that allows just 13.6 points per game. The Broncos are comprised of a unique mixture of the 4th ranked scoring defense and the 2nd ranked scoring offense; one that averages 46.7 points per contest and is only behind the #1 ranked offense of the Oregon Ducks. The NCAAF betting odds point totals at BetUS Sportsbooks saw the 2010 Las Vegas Bowl picks over/under open up at 61 ½ for this game and heavy action on the under has that total currently listed at 60 points, which Boise State may get close to on their own.
