I’m backing Wyoming and the points here. I just don’t feel like there’s as much of a gap between these two teams as this line would indicate, and New Mexico has been a hard team to trust when they’re taken out of their home environment. Wyoming hasn’t been stellar, but they’re good enough to get a cover here at the absolute worst so I’ll take the points with the Cowboys here.
