The Colorado State Rams and the Wyoming Cowboys meet in college basketball action from the Arena-Auditorium on Saturday. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.


The Colorado State Rams enter this game as 1.5-point road favorites with an attached ML price of -125. The total is set at 143.5 points for this game.


Kyle Evans is out for the season for Colorado State with a thumb injury while Josiah Strong is out indefinitely with an illness. For Wyoming, Graham Ike remains out indefinitely with a leg injury while Hunter Maldonado, Brendan Wenzel and Hunter Thompson are all questionable for this game. Kenny Foster remains out indefinitely as well for Wyoming with a back injury.

Matchup history

Colorado State won the last matchup between these two teams back on February 23rd, 2022 for their 3rd win in the last 4 head-to-head meetings between these two teams.


Colorado State is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road gmaes while the over is 7-0 in their last 7 games overall. Wyoming is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games against a team with a road winning percentage below .400 while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall.


If Wyoming were at full strength for this game, then I could make the case for the Cowboys, as they have some talented pieces like Thompson, Maldonado and even Ike (who was instrumental in a lot of Wyoming’s success last season), but without those guys, it leaves a lot of the heavy lifting to be done by guys who aren’t used to shouldering that load, especially when Colorado State’s on the other side at nearly full strength. All in all, I think the Rams just get the job done here, so I’ll back the Rams on the road here.
