The Air Force Falcons and Colorado State Rams face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Sonny Lubick Field at Hughes Stadium. 

This Air Force Team is Special

Air Force comes into this game with a 7-0 record and they have all kinds of confidence heading into this game. In the last game against Navy, Air Force scored only 17 points but the defense gave up only six points and that led to the 11 point victory. Zachary Larrier only threw the ball five times but he finished with 151 yards and a touchdown. On the season Air Force is averaging 34.1 points while their defense is giving up 13.4 points per game. The defense is ranked 4th best in college football. 

Air Force Betting Trends

  • Air Force has won each of its last 12 games against non-AP-ranked teams.
  • Air Force has covered the spread in four of its last five games.
  • Four of Air Force's last five games against non-AP-ranked teams have gone OVER the total points line.

Colorado State Looks to Bounce Back

Colorado State sits with a 3-4 record and they are coming off a loss in the last game. Colorado State was outscored 22-10 in the second half against UNLV and that was the difference as they were defeated by two points. Brayden Fowler-Nicolosi is under center and he completed 21 of his 31 passes for 235 yards and a touchdown. Colorado State is averaging 29.9 points while their defense is giving up 33.6 points per game. In this game the defense is going to need to find a way to slow down the Air Force rush attack, but also not let the big play through the air happen. 

Colorado State Betting Trends

  • The home team has won five of Colorado State's last six games.
  • The underdog has covered the spread in each of Colorado State's last six games.
  • Nine of Colorado State's last 11 games as an underdog against AP-ranked teams have gone UNDER the total points line.

Shane’s Free Pick

Colorado State is going to keep this game within 10 points. Colorado State played tough against UNLV in the last game. I do think Colorado State’s offense is going to find some sort of success against Air Force and that is going to be the difference here. I don’t think Colorado State is going to win this game, and it might never actually feel like they are going to win the game, but it’s going to be enough for Colorado State to cover the spread.
