Tips and Predictions for Wyoming and Colorado State
Wyoming 27, State of Colorado 17
No leverage should be achieved here. HAPPEN.
against the spread
Wyoming wants to run the ball a lot. The Cowboys are good at staying on schedule in early stages, and this CSU defense probably won’t get in much of their way. On red zone defense, the Rams were terrible. In total they allowed 31.7 PPG (110th FBS).
The Cowboys — 5-1 ATS in the last 6 games of this series — will be looking to rebound strongly after a shaky game in Honolulu and a bye week.
TAKE WYOMING -8.5 (-110).
The over is 3-1 in the last 4 head-to-head matches. It’s also 5-1 in the Cowboys’ last 6 games after an ATS loss and 6-0-1 in the Rams’ last 7 games in November.
The Wyoming offense is decent, but reachable for a few points in a game where the Rams seem to be chasing. CSU’s defense in the red zone and some expectations in short field add value on the over.
BACK ABOVE 42.5 (-112).
