BYU vs. Wyoming Poinsettia Bowl Game Point Spread Pick from Jack Jones: December 21st 2016

BYU Cougars vs. Wyoming Cowboys
Poinsettia Bowl Game Pick: BYU -10.5 points (December 21st 2016)

There is really a massive gap in talent here as the BYU Cougars should be better than the Wyoming Cowboys at almost every position in this game. That’s why I’m willing to lay 10.5 points here. And the Cougars won eight games this season against a ridiculously tough schedule.

Indeed, the Cougars had to play the likes of Arizona, Utah, UCLA, West Virginia, Michigan State, Toledo, Mississippi State, Boise State and Cincinnati in their first nine games to open the season. Amazingly, the Cougars were oh so close to being a 12-0 team as their four losses came by a combined eight points. They came to Utah (by 1), UCLA (by 3), WVU (by 3) and Boise State (by 1).

I have to give credit to Wyoming because it did have a great turnaround season, but I’m pretty sure that BYU will now be the best team that the Cowboys have faced this season. This is a Wyoming team that lost to Nebraska by 35 and New Mexico by 21. They also had bad losses to both Eastern Michigan and UNLV this season.

I realize that BYU will have to go with its backup quarterback here after Taysom Hill went down in the last game with a season-ending injury for the fourth time in five years. Fortunately, the Cougars have one of the most experienced backups in the country in sophomore Tanner Mangum.

Mangum completed 59.9 percent of his passes for 3,377 yards with 23 touchdowns and 10 interceptions as a freshman while replacing Hill last year. Mangum also saw action in the team’s final three games of the season, completing 14-of-18 passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns, so he comes in with plenty of experience.


This game will come down to which team stops the run better. Wyoming’s Brian Hill rushed for 1,767 yards and 21 touchdowns this season. But BYU has a rush defense that ranks 8th in the country, allowing just 108.4 yards per game and 3.4 yards per carry. The Cougars also only allow 19.4 points per game and 364 total yards per game.

BYU senior Jamaal Williams rushed for 1,165 yards and 11 touchdowns despite missing three of the last five games with an ankle injury. Now he’s in line for a huge game against a Wyoming defense that gives up 34.8 points per game, 464 yards per game and 6.6 yards per play. The Cowboys also give up 203 rushing yards per game and 5.3 per carry. Look for the Cougars to score at will in this one.

BYU is 6-0 ATS in non-conference road games this season. The Cougars are 8-0 ATS in their last eight road games after allowing 125 or fewer rushing yards in four straight games. BYU is 4-0 ATS in its last four vs. MWC opponents. The Cougars have gone 7-0 SU & 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings. The Cowboys are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 non-conference games.  Bet BYU in the Poinsettia Bowl.

San Diego State Aztecs vs. Wyoming Cowboys Betting Prediction: December 3rd 2016

AZTECS VS. COWBOYS FOOTBALLSan Diego State Aztecs vs. Wyoming Cowboys
College Football Prediction: Wyoming +7 (December 3rd 2016)

Oddsmakers made a mistake when they made San Diego State a 10-point favorite in their first meeting this season.  The Cowboys won that contest 34-33 and outgained the Aztecs by nearly 100 yards.  The only reason it was even close was because SDSU had two kickoff return touchdowns.  Now the books have made SDSU a 7-point road favorite again in the rematch, and I think the Cowboys are going to win outright.  The Aztecs are worn out right now, and head coach Rocky Long admitted it.  That was evident last week when they lost 31-63 at home to Colorado State.  I don’t think they’ll be recovered in time here.  Wyoming clearly didn’t care about the game against New Mexico on the road last week because they had already punched their tickets to the MWC title game.  I’ll give them a pass for that effort.  One factor I love about this game is that it’s going to be played in 20-degree weather in Laramie, Wyoming.  The Aztecs are used to the warm confines of San Diego, and they won’t be ready for this cold weather contest in the altitude.  The Cowboys are 11-0 ATS in their last 11 games after allowing 375 or more rushing yards in their previous game.  Look for the Cowboys to cap off a tremendous turnaround season with a MWC title.  Take Wyoming.

San Diego State Aztecs vs. Wyoming Cowboys Football Prediction: November 19th 2016

SAN DIEGO STATE VS. WYOMINGSan Diego State Aztecs vs. Wyoming Cowboys
Football Betting Prediction: SDST -10 points (November 19th 2016)

SDSU has won 19 of its L20 overall & 17 straight in MWC play…My free play is on San Diego St at 3:30 ET.

The Aztecs won their final 10 games of the 2015 season and opened with three wins in 2016, before falling apart in the 4th quarter of an Oct. 2 game at South Alabama. SDSU led 24-21 into the final period but after South Alabama took the lead early in the 4th, a quick series and short punt set up the Jaguars for another TD, less than four minutes later. South Alabama put the game away with an 80-yard ‘pick six’ later in the quarter. SDSU has rebounded since that loss with six straight wins, all in league play and enter with a commanding lead in the West Division of the MWC (in line to defend its MWC title).

Wyoming comes in 7-3 overall, including 5-1 in the Mountain Division, tied with Boise St (which plays Friday at home vs UNLV) and New Mexico, which plays Saturday at Colorado St. The Cowboys shocked the Broncos with a 30-28 home win back on October 29 but this past Saturday lost a triple-OT game to UNLV, 69-66 (third highest scoring game in FBS history). Wyoming allowed a ridiculous 401 yards rushing to UNLV and now faces SDSU, which features Donnel Pumphrey, who leads the nation with 1,779 yards rushing (6.6 YPC / 14 TDs) and sits just 347 yards away from breaking the all-time NCAA rushing record held by Wisconsin’s Ron Dayne (6,397).

Pumphrey turned in another stellar effort in last week’s 46-16 rout of Nevada, gaining 198 yards on 7.6 YPC. Even more frightening is that when Pumphrey needs a blow, there’s Rashaad Penny (784 yards on 7.8 YPC with 9 TDs), who out-did Pumphrey against Nevada, rushing for 208 yards in just 10 attempts! Wyoming has a terrific RB in Brian Hill (1,417 yards on 5.7 YPC with 16 TDs) but the SDSU running game is tough to top. Wyoming is 5-0 SU (4-1 ATS) at home, outscoring opponents 40.4-27.6 PPG but getting past SDSU will be a real test.

After last week’s awful defensive effort (if you’ll pardon the pun), Wyoming is now allowing 33.7 PPG (104th) on the season on 462.6 YPG (108th). In stark contrast, the SDSU defense allows just 15.2 PPG (7th) on 283.3 YPG (5th). The Aztecs have now won 19 of their last 20 games and still have a chance at earning a New Year’s Six bowl bid. SDSU cracked the AP top-25 last week but not the CFP rankings. However, Boise St (20) and Western Michigan (21) are no locks to stay where they are. If SDSU wins out (especially if can beat Boise St in the MWC title game), the Aztecs just may be in line for a Cotton Bowl berth.

First things first. The Aztecs have won 17th straight conference games, so what’s one more, “with room too spare!” Lay the points with the road favorite in this one.

Wyoming Cowboys vs. UNLV Rebels Football Spread Pick from Doc’s Sports: November 12th 2016

WYOMING VS. UNLV BETTINGWyoming Cowboys vs. UNLV Rebels
Point Spread Pick: Wyoming -7 (November 12th 2016)

Free Play from Doc’s Sports. #151 Take Wyoming Cowboys over UNLV Rebels (Saturday 3 pm ROOT Sports) The Cowboys were in for a letdown last week but made quick work of the Aggies and now face a much weaker team in UNLV on Saturday afternoon. Wyoming likely just needs to win two of their last three games to advance to the MWC Championship Game against San Diego State and one of those wins will come today. The Cowboys have won five straight games and only their game against Boise State featured a final score lower than today’s posted number. UNLV has a very slim chance make a bowl game (must win at Boise State) and thus I expect them to focus all their attention on the Nevada game to end the regular season. They will try and keep the cannon red for a second straight year. Wyoming was terrible last year and still beat UNLV. The Rebels have lost three of their last four games and are playing the hottest team in the MWC. Wyoming is playing with a ton of confidence and expect that ride to continue Saturday.

Nebraska vs. Wyoming Football Betting Prediction from Kyle Hunter: September 10th 2016

NEBRASKA VS. WYOMING BETTING PREDICTIONNebraska Cornhuskers vs. Wyoming Cowboys
Betting Prediction: Wyoming +25 points (September 10th 2016)

*3 Star CFB Free Pick* The Nebraska Cornhuskers play the Oregon Ducks next week. They host the Wyoming Cowboys this week. If there was ever a look ahead spot this is it. Nebraska can’t be excited to play a Wyoming team that was 2-10 last year.

Check out why Tony George is also betting Wyoming on Saturday..

Craig Bohl has proven himself to be a good coach though in the past at North Dakota State, and I think he is beginning to build up this Wyoming program. Bohl also played for the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the last 1970’s. He definitely will be looking for a strong performance against his old team.

Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen is a big key for the team. In the past, Wyoming has had good running backs, but they haven’t had a decent quarterback to go along with them. This year they have a quarterback who is a good dual-threat guy. Brian Hill and Shaun Wick are very good running backs as well.

Nebraska was only up 14-10 at half against Fresno State last weekend, and that wasn’t a look ahead spot for them. The Cowboys are improved and there is plenty of backdoor potential in this one if it is necessary. Grab the points. Take Wyoming.
