Free Week 9 NCAA Football Pick
As obvious as it sounds, if you can’t score the football, you’re going to struggle winning games.
That’s how it’s been for Wyoming this season, and that’s how it’s going to be in Week 9 against Colorado State.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Colorado State ATS
If Wyoming can shut down the Rams’ offense for the majority of this contest, the Cowboys will have a chance of keeping things close. After all, the point we just made about scoring and winning applies to all teams—not just ones who happen to be terrible at scoring the ball.
But all that said, the Rams being held under 20 points seems highly unlikely, whereas the Cowboys have scored 20 points in a single outing since Week 1.
This won’t be a blowout, because simply put: There won’t be enough points scored on either side to constitute as much.
But a double-digit win is still in the cards, even if it comes in low-scoring fashion.
