The goal for the Wyoming Cowboys is to climb in to the top half of the Mountain West and if they do that a winning record will follow. The Cowboys need to do an about face with losses in seven of ten where neither end of the floor has stood out. Wyoming comes off of a 71-60 defeat at Fresno State on Tuesday with the Bulldogs erasing a four point hole with a 38-23 second half. The Cowboys never found the shooting touch at 35% with Fresno State using 41.8% accuracy and 12 more looks to total eight more field goals which was a winning stat. Josh Adams poured in a game high 32 points which was the Cowboys lone double digit scorer with eight players combining for 28 points.
The over is 9-3 in Colorado State last 12 road games and is 12-5 in their last 17 overall. The over is 22-6 in Wyoming last 28 home games and the Cowboys are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Saturday games while going 21-8 in their last 29 Saturday games. I think both teams are on equal footing so I’ll side with the points…
