Reed Timmer is averaging 21.7 PPG, 3.7 RPG and 3.2 APG to lead the Bulldogs, while Woodward is second on 13.8 PPG. Also in double-figures for Drake are De’Antae McMurray (12.8 PPG) and McGlynn (12.2 PPG; .7.3 RPG).
Over on the Wyoming side, they’re currently 5-2 on the year. The Cowboys have lost two of their last three versus Cincinnati and Denver. In that Denver game, the top Wyoming scorer was Justin James, with 17 points.
On the year, Hayden Dalton is the top Cowboys scorer with 16.4 PPG and 7.0 RPG, and James has 12.5 PPG and 4.0 RPG. Alan Herndon (11.4 PPG; 4.9 RPG) and Louis Adams (10.1 PPG) are also in double-digits for Wyoming.
The Bulldogs are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 versus the Mountain West and 25-51-2 ATS in their last 78 Saturday games. Drake is also 3-8-1 ATS in the last 12 games overall and 17-35-2 ATS in their last 54 road games.
Meanwhile, the Cowboys are 4-0 ATS in their last four games following an ATS loss and 7-1 ATS in their last eight home games. Wyoming is also 4-1 ATS in their last five Saturday games and 12-5 ATS in the last 17 games overall.
Drake was looking okay there for a while, but then they put up a stinker to a bad Omaha team in their last outing. Wyoming had a pretty good run going as well, until they went to Denver and lost by 10 points. The Cowboys should cover this game, but all in all I’m staying away.
