Colorado State is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 conference games. Colorado State is 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Colorado State’s last 5 games overall. Wyoming is 2-12 ATS in their last 14 games on turf. Wyoming is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Wyoming’s last 5 games overall.
The Wyoming Cowboys only have one win this year and have really struggled, especially without their starting quarterback. Colorado State is 3-5 and also is not having a very good season. If Wyoming doesn’t have their starting quarterback for this one, I have to side with Colorado State in this one.
