San Jose State vs Wyoming Betting Prediction

Both of these teams come into this game with a 7-6 record, but Wyoming will have the home court advantage. Wyoming is allowing 73 points against per game this year and has allowed 78, 84, 94 points in their last three losses. San Jose State has also struggled defensively, but they are the slightly better offensive team. I think this game is going to be high scoring, as both teams are scoring over 74 points per game, so I like the over in this contest.
