Rams on a losing skid
Colorado State is riding a four-game losing streak right now following a 29-24 win loss at home to Utah State last week. The Rams are 3-8 overall and 2-5 in the Mountain West. They are 4-7 against the spread and 7-4 with the under. They have hit the under in two straight games.
The Rams are really a mess on defense right now, allowing 37.6 points and 449.9 yards per game. Their run defense is giving up over 200 yards per game. Offensively, Colorado State is putting up just 23.2 points and 408.1 yards per game. Collin Hill has taken over starting QB duties as of late. He has thrown for 1,103 yards and five touchdowns, but also has six interceptions. Preston Williams is the leading receiver with 84 catches for 1,097 yards and 11 touchdowns. Izzy Matthews has rushed for 665 yards and four touchdowns.
Air Force falls at Wyoming
Air Force is coming off a 35-27 loss at Wyoming last week for its third loss in four games. The Falcons are 4-7 overall and 2-5 in the Mountain West Conference. They are 6-4-1 against the spread and 6-5 with the under. Air Force has hit the over in two straight and four of their last five.
The Falcons are putting up 30.5 points and 409.6 yards per game on offense this year. They have a big rushing attack, averaging 273.7 yards per contest. Cole Fagan is leading the ground attack with 737 yards and six touchdowns while Isaiah Sanders has added 466 rushing yards and six touchdowns with 844 passing yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Air Force is giving up 26.4 points and 354 yards per game.
College Football Betting Trends
Colorado has hit the under in five of its last seven road games and in six of its last eight games following a loss.
Air Force has hit the over in nine of its last 11 against a team with a losing record and in 36 of its last 52 conference games.
The Total is being set pretty high, but these two are known for high-scoring games. They have put up at least 73 points in each of their last two and have hit the over in nine of their last 10 meetings. I would expect the Air Force ground game to easily carve up the Rams on Thursday, as Colorado State hasn’t been able to stop anyone. Colorado State has a respectable passing game that should find some success, especially if they fall behind early. I think this will be another high-scoring game between these two.
