Cowboys looking to bounce back
The Wyoming Cowboys are coming off a 26-21 loss at Utah State last weekend. All four of their losses this season have come by five points or less. Wyoming comes into this game 6-4 on the season, 3-3 in the Mountain West, 6-4 against the spread and 7-3 with the under.
The Cowboys have been led by their defense this season, as they are giving up just 18.7 points and 383 yards per game. Logan Wilson is leading the defense with 80 tackles, three interceptions and one sack. Offensively, Wyoming is putting up 26.9 points and 354.2 yards per outing. The team lost QB Sean Chambers for the season due to a knee injury. He had thrown for 915 yards and seven scores this year. Tyler Vander Waal has filled in and thrown for 429 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions. Xazavian Valladay is the team’s leading rusher with 869 yards and five scores. Chambers was next with 567 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns. Raghib Ismail Jr. is the team’s leading receiver with just 14 catches for 240 yards.
Rams fall at home
Colorado State had its three-game win streak come to an end last weekend in a 38-21 loss at home to Air Force. The Rams are now 4-6 on the season, 3-3 in the Mountain West Conference, 6-4 against the spread and 6-4 with the under.
The Rams have been pretty solid on offense this year, averaging 30.6 points and 460.5 yards per game. Defensively, Colorado State is giving up 32.6 points and 391.4 yards per contest. Patrick O’Brien has thrown for 2,297 yards and 10 touchdowns this year to lead the offense.

College Football Betting Trends
The Cowboys are 5-1 against the spread in their last six against a losing team and 4-1 ATS in their last five games following a failed cover.
The Rams are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight conference games and 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games following a double-digit loss at home.
Wyoming has won and covered the spread in three straight meetings with Colorado State. The Cowboys have taken some close losses this year, but they have been on the road. Wyoming has been solid at home, winning their last three by at least 13 points. Colorado State had a nice little run going until last weekend, but I think the Rams are going to struggle with Wyoming today. Colorado State gives up over 200 rushing yards per game and Wyoming wants to control the game on the ground. The Cowboys should be able to run at will and pick up the win and cover tonight.
