Wyoming Cowboys Game Notes

Wyoming lost defensive end Sabastian Harsh earlier this week to an unspecified, season-ending injury. Backup running back Dawaiian McNeeley is also banged up and receiver Gunner Gentry will miss his second-straight season after suffering a knee injury in camp.

Illinois Fighting Illini Game Notes

Bret Bielema announced Syracuse transfer Tommy DeVito as Illinois' starting quarterback on Thursday. DeVito has a promising arm and the potential to boost the offense under first-year coordinator Barry Lunney Jr., hired from UTSA after the Roadrunners embarrassed Bielema's squad last year. The run-happy Cowboys lost quarterbacks Sean Chambers and Levi Williams to the transfer portal and brought in Andrew Peasley from rival Utah State and Evan Svoboda from Snow College. The result could hinge on which team's newcomers hit the ground running.

Wyoming vs. Illinois Betting Trends

Cowboys are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Big Ten

Fighting Illini are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall

Fighting Illini are 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games

Wyoming vs. Illinois Betting Prediction

The under is 8-2 in the Fighting Illini’s last 10 games overall, is 4-1 in their last five home games and is 14-5 in their last 19 non-conference matchups. I don’t know how sharp these offenses will be out of the gates and considering the unfamiliarity on both sides, I could see both offenses struggling. This is a low total, but I still don’t see these two teams combining for enough points to push the final score over the number today in Champagne.
