Wyoming (-4) vs. Air Force Game Overview 9:00 ET
Last night’s SBR video selections on the Louisville Cardinals (-1) and the Utah Jazz (-4) were both winning selections. This makes the current run on SBR Video selections 23-8 ATS. Today, we look forward to yet another winner with a great example from today’s Article (available at this site) entitled “The 2016 CBKB Towel Tossers.” The Wyoming Cowboys travel to Colorado Springs for tonight’s 9:00 ET tip against their border rivals the Air Force Falcons. When these teams met earlier this year, Wyoming emerged with a (64-52) victory as 6 point favorite in Laramie. Today’s line of “Wyoming (-5)” may be a drastic adjustment from that, but it shows just how far the Fly Boys have fallen this season.

A quick look at today’s Article, the “2016 CBKB Towel Tossers,” indicates Air Force is a part of the cellar dwellers in college basketball. As a group, these teams are 19-38 ATS as conference home dog. Air Force is one of the teams which have been most greatly negatively affected by this year’s rule changes. No longer are the Fly Boys able to milk the clock for the full 40 seconds, thus wearing down the opposing defense. Nor are they able to use their cleverly disguised grab and hold defense. 

As a result of the above, the Fly Boys’ season has plummeted into the abyss. Air Force has lost their last 8 contests with the most recent a (75-54) loss at San Jose on Saturday. Yes, that would be the same San Jose team who won only 2 games all of last season and has only 2 victories in MWC play this year! In their most recent 3 outings against Fresno, New Mexico and San Jose, Air Force has not exceeded 55 points in any of those contests. They are shooting just 41% from the field and 33% from the arc, knocking down less than 6 triples per game. It is doubtful the offense gets untracked against the perennially tough Wyoming stop unit, who this year is allowing just 42% from the field and 33% from the arc.

 

Betting Analysis
In the first meeting, Wyoming, which averages over (9) 3s per game, knocked down 11 triples. That may well happen again tonight, as Air Force is allowing an average of nearly (9) 3s per game. This is Wyoming HC Larry Shyatt’s second “go around” with the Cowboys (interrupted by his time spent at Clemson). Now, in his 6th year back in Laramie, his Cowboy teams have averaged over 21 wins per season in the last 4 years. Though they have taken a step back with an 11-12 SU mark this season, these are exactly the type of games that Wyoming must win, if they are to post a winning record and become eligible for post-season play. Who better to do it against than one of our cellar dwelling towel tossers.

I invite you to put the NCAA basketball odds in your favor and join me in my NCAA basketball pick on Wyoming this evening.
