COLORADO (-7.0) 26 Wyoming 24

12:30 PM Pacific Time Saturday, Sep-19


I don't understand how Colorado can be favored by more than 3 points over Wyoming. Wyoming is a bad offensive team again this year (they've averaged just 4.5 yppl), but the Cowboys have a good defense that's limited two very good offensive teams (Weber State and Texas) to a respectable 6.0 yppl combined.

Colorado, meanwhile, has been horrible on both sides of the ball against two worse than average teams (Colorado State and Toledo), averaging just 4.7 yppl and allowing a horrendous 8.0 yppl in their two upset losses.

I would have certainly made Wyoming a Best Bet here except that the situational analysis favors Colorado. I'll still favor Wyoming to cover despite the negative situation.
