College Basketball Betting Pick & Prediction: Wyoming Cowboys vs Colorado State Rams - February 24, 2023

February 24, 2023

Wyoming Cowboys are set to take on the Colorado State Rams Friday night in a battle of two teams searching for a win, in hopes of ending the season on a positive note. Both teams have not had the type of seasons they envisioned but a win would make them feel good. They jump it up at 9 pm. The Rams are laying close to eight points in this clash.Wyoming Cowboys Betting PreviewThe Cowboys (8-19) have had a rough season to date and they are looking to pick up a win and get some confidence going into the off-season. They will not be tourney bound and are playing out the string. They have dropped six of eight overall as they have seen their record fall to 8-19.Wyoming is a team that has shown no level of consistency all season long. Senior guard Hunter Maldonado paces them with 15 points per contest to go along with five rebounds and just under four assists per contest. He is the floor general and he makes the offense go. They need him to carry the load and make plays on the floor, he has the ability to draw the defense in and then kick it out to his teammates. If those shooters can get some clean looks and knock-down shots, they can win this game and pull off what would be a minor upset.As a whole, they shoot 34% from three-point land, while draining close to 44% from the floor overall. They need to push the pace and see if the Rams can keep pace with them. Colorado State Rams Betting Preview The Rams (12-16) have also had a rough campaign and they never really got out of their own way. They are a tough team to watch at times, because they do not run the floor well, and they have defensive lapses at times. They are led by senior guard Isaiah Stevens who averages around 18 points per game to go along with three rebounds and a team-high seven assists. He is a solid player and loves to put the ball on the ground and get to the basket, but as you can see by his stats, he also looks to penetrate and dish first and get his teammates involved and make life easy on them. The Rams, though, as a whole shoot 36% from beyond the arc, while connecting on 49% from the field as a whole. They will need Stevens to be the catalyst and make things happen once he puts the ball on the floor. If they can not knock down their open looks they are going to have a tough time winning this game even against a poor team like the Cowboys. Game Odds, Series Trends and Free PickColorado State is 2-3 in their last five games and 3-2 in their last five games against the number, but just 5-7 in their road games against the spread.
