San Diego State
The Aztecs are 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall. San Diego State is 6-2 ATS in its last eight Tuesday games.
This is a top 10 matchup against a team ranked around 300 in the country. The spread might not be wide enough. I don't think it is. The Cowboys have one of the worst offenses in the country and are facing a team in the top 10 in adjusted defensive efficiency. I'd rather bet on a blowout here than hope Wyoming than stumble into staying closer than the spread projects.
