The Wyoming Cowboys had a solid season but they lost five of their last six games after the injury to Larry Nance Jr. that ended his season. Wyoming is 9-5 in non-conference games and 3-10 in the road this season. Josh Adams leads the Cowboys averaging 12.9 points per game. Riley Grabau is averaging 10.4 points, Nathan Scobey is averaging 9.8 points, and Derek Cooke Jr. is averaging 6.1 points and 5.9 rebounds. Wyoming is averaging 65.2 points and they are shooting 47.8 percent while defensively they are allowing 61.8 points and their opponents are shooting 40.7 percent. Wyoming season looked promising a month ago but since then it has gone downhill landing them in this spot.
Texas A&M are 5-1 against the spread in their last six home games, 5-2 against the spread against a team with a winning record, and 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games after allowing 90 points in their previous game. Wyoming is 7-3 against the spread following a loss, 2-5-1 against the spread in their last eight games overall, and 10-4 against the spread against a team with a winning record.
The total in this one is set aggressively low but I see it being too low and this one goes over. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
