The Wyoming Cowboys and the Air Force Falcons meet in college basketball action from the Clune Arena on Tuesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


The Air Force Falcons enter this game as 2.5-point home favorites with an attached ML of -140. The over/under for this game is set at 132.


The injuries are piling up for Wyoming, with Hunter Maldonado questionable for this game with an Illness, as well as Jake Kyman questionable with a back issue and Brendan Wenzel questionable with a leg issue. The Cowboys are also awaiting the returns of Graham Ike and Hunter Thompson who are both out indefinitely. The only recent addition to the injury report for Air Force is Jeffrey Mills, who is questionable for this game with an undisclosed injury.

Matchup history

Wyoming has won the last three meetings with Air Force after a 75-67 win back on February 19th, 2022.


Wyoming is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following a double-digit loss at home while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall. Air Force is 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games overall and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games while the over is 6-0 in their last 6 home games.


I was initially going to go towards the under, but if Maldonado can’t go, it’s going to be a firm push towards Air Force, which is where I may be anyways. Wyoming’s struggled for the most part over the course of the season as the strategy has shifted back to putting all the heavy lifting on Maldonado, and the success the Cowboys had came when there were secondary options to take some of the pressure off of Maldonado. The Cowboys don’t have that and if they don’t have their top guy, it’s going to make it even harder. I think the Falcons were the better team to begin with right now and I think they snag a win and cover here.
