Against The Spread Pick

The third Mountain West Conference first round game will see the Wyoming Cowboys take on the Colorado State Rams. Wyoming is by far the worst team in this conference, posting a record of 2-16. On the other side, we have a solid Rams team who were 11-7, but do not have the resume for an at-large bid. The only way either of these teams can make the NCAA tournament is by winning four games in four days. While Wyoming lost both games to Colorado State this season, they managed to cover in both meetings. The underdog is 7-1-1 in the last 9 meetings, so I will lean to the Cowboys to keep this game inside double-digits.

Over Under Pick

Both of these teams trend to the over and that is where I am looking for this game as well. Each team is allowing an average of 72 points per game over their last five as well. The over is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings, so even though this game is on neutral floor, I look for the over to cash. Since it is still Wyoming, I cannot recommend a strong play, so this should be a very small bet if any at all.
