The Rebels are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 Saturday games, however, are just 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Cowboys are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games following a ATS win.

UNLV has been solid defensively this season, however, this is still not an overall great team and they come into this game with just a 3-6 record on the road. Wyoming has a strong offense that ranks 81st in scoring offense & 15th in three-pointers made per game and between the fact that they just got back Kenny Foster and that they have a winning record at home, I think the play here is to take the Cowboys in this pick-em. Good Luck!
