Air Force +5.5 at Wyoming O/U 133.5
Recommendation: Air Force
Air Force heads to Wyoming to take on the Cowboys in a Mountain West matchup pinning two very different approaches. Wyoming has fallen on tough times of late dropping their last four games as it sports the forth youngest roster in the nation. They are welcoming in a 10-4 Air Force team who has not lost in Laramie since the 1998 season. Air Force has transitioned its offense a bit of late in response to the almost strictly zone defense it has seen. Since the switch forward Hayden Graham has been flashing to the free throw line and the Falcons have been running their offense through him. Graham has excelled in his increase role averaging 15.4 ppg and 7.8 rpg. Wyoming defensively ranks amongst the bottom nationally in steal percentage; they just cannot turn anyone over and there’s no reason to think that would change tonight against a Falcons squad that typically values possessions. This is Wyoming first home game in nearly a month but even accounting for the uptick in play, there simply isn’t much of any difference between these two squads. Better times are on the horizon for Larry Shyatt’s squad but they shouldn’t be laying this type of price at this point in the season. Take the points with the road underdog.
