    Looking to place a stake on Colorado State? Thinking you can cash in on the Cowboys? If you’re going to take advantage of the Wyoming vs. Colorado State odds, consider some of the following factors before you part with your hard-earned cash.

    Despite losing their last two games, Wyoming enters the Border War as a one-touchdown favorite over their Mountain West rivals. Although the Cowboys trail 59-50-5 in the head-to-head record, they haven’t lost to the Rams in Laramie since 2015 and have won the last two encounters between the two teams. You can expect them to extend that run to three games.

    While favoring Wyoming to get the win on Friday night, this game might be closer than the current spread line might suggest. The Cowboys haven’t covered in any game where they’ve been the spread favorite, winning all three. Meanwhile, Colorado State are 4-2 covering the spread as an underdog. Wyoming wins, but Colorado State covers. Potentially.

    It’s a low total points line, not Iowa low but low enough, and our Wyoming vs. Colorado State predictions suggest the two teams can power through. They’re combined scoring offense average takes them past 50 points, and while we don’t believe we’ll see a game like the 70+ point showdown of 2014, they should be able to muster 41 points between them.

    There are two college football games on Friday to compile your DFS team from in Week 10. If you’re new to DFS, Fanduel Superflex contests require you to select a quarterback, two running backs, three wide receivers, and a “superflex” that can be any of the above. Or you can also select a tight end for the Superflex spot.

    Colorado State’s pass-heavy offense — the Rams rank third in the nation for pass attempts this season — lends itself to quarterback Brayden Fowler-Nicolosi being one of your Wyoming vs. Colorado State picks. However, he’s scored just 146.44 fantasy points this year as a result of 11 interceptions. Buyer beware against the Cowboys third in conference pass defense.

    You might be cautious around the quarterback position, but there’s no need for reservation over wide receiver Tory Horton. He’s the second-highest scoring WR in the Mountain West and is the main outlet for the Colorado State offense — leading the team in receiving yards and touchdowns.

    If ever there was a game for a tight end to take your Superflex spot, it’s this one. Colorado State’s Treyton Welch and Colorado State’s Dallin Holker are two of the very best in the game. In fact, there isn’t a more dangerous, point-scoring weapon at the position for fantasy purposes than Holker who leads all tight ends with 98 points. Brock Bowers is the closest with 89.4.

    Prediction for Wyoming vs. Colorado State

    Okay, so we’ve furnished you with the Wyoming vs. Colorado State odds and some DFS picks. Now, it’s time to close this thing out with our prediction.

    Is Wyoming best placed for a win on Friday night? Could Colorado State spring a shock in this Mountain West matchup and bring home the Bronze Boot for the first time since 2020?

    Colorado State has been able to pull off some shock performances during this 2023 college football season, even if their 3-5 overall and 1-3 Mountain West record suggests they’re not capable of competing with the 5-3 Cowboys. They played Colorado close in the national eye early in the season and beat Boise State for the first time in school history.

    The Rams’ high-volume passing attack under head coach Jay Norvell is always difficult to defend against, especially when you have a receiver as talented as Tory Horton stalking opposition secondaries. Meanwhile, on defense, they boast an equally talented playmaker in Mohamed Kamara who leads the Mountain West with 10.5 sacks and can make life difficult for Wyoming.

    The issue for Colorado State in this game is a Wyoming defense that is one of the best in the conference against the pass, with multiple players capable of penetrating the backfield. Meanwhile Wyoming’s offense might not be as high-powered but is efficient in the hands of Andrew Peasley and Harrison Waylee.

    Craig Bohl’s team win the turnover battle, keep the Bronze Boot in Laramie, and book bowl eligibility with a close fought win.

    Prediction: Wyoming 24, Colorado State 21
