Wyoming Cowboys Preview

Wyoming moved to 14-16 after defeating Air Force in Laramie, 74-63. The Cowboys out scored the Falcons in both periods, and they’ll attempt to win consecutive games for the first time since January here in Fresno. Wyoming is currently 8th in the Mountain West with a 6-6 record in conference play. The Cowboys are 5-5 over their previous ten games, and they’ve gone 4-3 on the road this season. 

Wyoming Team Analysis

  • Miami native Sam Griffin went for a game-high 21 points in the win over SJSU, and he leads Wyoming in scoring (17.9) and assists (3.5).  
  • Senior guard Akuel Kot matched his energy with 20 points against the Spartans, and he’s second in the team at 14.7 ppg.  
  • Veteran guard Brendan Wenzel led the way with 24 points in the Utah State matchup, and he’s up to 10.8 ppg and 5.4 rpg.  

Fresno State Bulldogs Preview

Fresno State fell to 11-19 after falling to New Mexico in Albuquerque, 79-58. The Bulldogs were no match for the Lobos, and they’ll look to avenge a one-point defeat to the Cowboys this weekend at home. Fresno St. is currently 9th in the Mountain West with a 4-11 record in conference play, while going 5-5 over their last ten games, and they’re 6-5 on the road this season.

Fresno State Team Analysis

  • Senior guard Isaiah Hill went for a game-high 21 points in the Utah State matchup, and he leads Fresno in scoring (12.5) and assists (6.2). 
  • Wyoming transfer Xavier Dusell has scored 14 points or more in five of the last six games,  and he’s second on the team at 11.4 ppg. 
  • Junior center and leading rebounder Enoch Boakye (8.4 pog, 8.2 rpg) returned in the loss to New Mexico after missing five straight contests.  

Wyoming vs Fresno State Game Trends

  • Fresno State leads the all-time series, 22-16, but Wyoming has won four of the last five matchups.  
  • WYO is 11-16-1 against the spread, with a 13-16 O/U record.
  • FRES is 13-16 ATS, with a 8-18 over/under record.

Wyoming vs Fresno State Prediction  

This Mountain West battle should be contested, as Wyoming comes in with the stronger squad, but it will mark Senior Night for Fresno State. The Bulldogs have dropped five straight games, and it’ll be interesting to see how their veteran group comes out against a fellow experienced Cowboys team. Both teams trend well with the Under, so that may be a route to go, I like rolling the dice with Fresno State here though for their home finale. L
