Meanwhile, Wyoming is 5-0 ATS in their last five after an ATS loss and 4-0 ATS in their last four after a straight-up loss. The Cowboys are 4-1 ATS in their last five on turf and 4-1 ATS in the last five home games.
PICK: I’m going to stick with Boise State here. This one could get interesting cover-wise, though. The Cowboys have put up some pretty good points totals this season, and when everything is working Wyoming’s offense is potent. Boise State is a great offensive team as well, with a combined 92 points in their last two games. I like this to be a high-flying affair, with the Broncos eventually banging out a cover.
