Wyoming has had one or two close calls so far, but the team is playing well. In their first eight, the Cowboys have beaten Detroit, AR-Pine Bluff, Washington, Grand Canyon, Hastings, CSU Fullerton, Denver and McNeese State. 

Winning Props Bets

In the McNeese State matchup on Saturday, Wyoming posted a 33-26 first-half advantage and scored 46 more from there in a 79-58 win. Hunter Maldonado led the team with 20 points, five assists and four rebounds during the victory. 

Over on the Wildcats’ side, they’ve really only had one close game across their first seven outings. In succession, Arizona has beaten Northern AZ, UT Rio Grande Valley, North Dakota State, Wichita State, Michigan, Sacramento State and Oregon State. 

On Sunday in the Oregon State game, Arizona pulled away with a 46-29 advantage in the second half on the way to a dominant 90-65 win. Bennedict Mathurin was tops on the team in scoring with 29 points, six boards and one assist in 30 minutes. 

The Wildcats are 4-1 ATS in their last five at home and 6-1 ATS in their last seven overall. Arizona is 5-1 ATS in their last six as a favorite and 20-8 ATS in their last 28 on Wednesday. 

Meanwhile, the Cowboys are 22-6 ATS in their last 28 road games and 35-17-1 ATS in the last 53 overall. Wyoming is 4-1 ATS in their last five Wednesday games. 

PICK: I’m going to stick with Arizona. You could probably go either way here, though. The Wildcats didn’t have much trouble in their last game, shooting 47.1 percent from the field with 39 rebounds and 20 team assists. Arizona’s only “close” game so far was a four-point win over Wichita State back on November 19. The team has been cooking. 

As for Wyoming, they’ve been scoring well this season with 68 or more points in each outing. I like the Cowboys to stand tall and give Arizona a relative challenge in an eventual Wildcats cover. Should be a fun one to watch.
