The Colorado State Rams (20-11, CONF 11-7) and Wyoming Cowboys (7-23, CONF 2-16)face off in a Mountain West Conference tournament showdown at the Thomas & Mack Center. Colorado State won each of the two matchups this season, but Wyoming was able to cover each of the spreads.

This season Wyoming is averaging 60.4 points per game while the defense has given up 69.2 points. Over the last five games, Wyoming’s offense has been a little better but the defense has also been worse giving up 72.6 points per game.

Colorado State has been better this year, but they have been up and down. Over the last ten games, Colorado State has won six of the games, but they have only covered the spread in four of those games.
Over the last five games, the Rams are averaging 71.6 points while the defense is giving up 72.2 points.
Colorado State is led by guard Isaiah Stevens who is averaging 13 points while shooting 47 percent from the field. Stevens has finished below his season average in three of the last four games, and they need him to be better in this game.
Wyoming is 2-7 against the spread in their last nine games played on a neutral site. The over is 8-1 in Colorado State’s last nine games a favorite. The underdog is 7-1-1 in the last nine meetings between the Rams and Cowboys. The over is 8-2 in the last ten meetings between Colorado State and Wyoming.
Wyoming has covered the spread in the two previous meetings and it’s going to happen again in this game.
The Cowboys offense has been playing better as of late, and that will be enough to cover the spread in this one.
