The Wyoming Cowboys are off to a great start in the MWC. They are currently sitting at 4-1. In Week 7, they go up against the Fresno State Bulldogs.
The Bulldogs are also a top team in the MWC. So this matchup means a lot for how that conference is going to play out this season. Let’s look at how each team has done so far this year and what it means for the college football odds in Week 7.
The 2021 Fresno State Bulldogs
The Bulldogs are 4-2 and are doing amazing things this year on the offensive side of the ball.
The Bulldogs should pose a significant challenge for the Cowboys. The Fresno State offense averages 39 points per game.
Part of the firepower behind their high-octane offense is their quarterback, Jake Haener, who has 2,230 yards and 18 touchdowns through six games. The Washington transfer has proven himself to be a superstar on the collegiate level.
His claim to fame is leading an epic, last-minute drive to beat the UCLA Bruins in Week 4. He also helped Fresno State take the Oregon Ducks down to the wire.
Look for the Bulldogs to give the University of Wyoming a run for their money in Week 7. The Bulldogs are not going to roll over and play dead by any means.
The 2021 Wyoming Cowboys
Now, let’s talk about the Wyoming Cowboys.
Their defense is currently ranked 13th in pass defense, only allowing 171.2 yards per game. They also have nine takeaways against opponents this season. With Fresno State relying heavily on the air attack, the Wyoming defense’s secondary will play a huge role.
The Bulldogs have 15 giveaways so far this year. This presents a lot of opportunities for the Wyoming defense to create some turnovers.
Wyoming Week 7 Spreads
If you’re looking to do some online sports betting for this game, let’s take a look at some of the spreads and lines.
The Bulldogs are the favorite by 3.5. The Wyoming Cowboys haven’t covered the spread yet this year when they’re the underdog by 3.5 or more.
The Cowboys are also 50% for hitting the over in their games so far this season. They’ve only combined with their opponents to score more than the set point totals in 2 out of 4 games this season. They like to play low-scoring physical games.
But, if they haven’t covered the spread yet, this might be the week they finally do. The Cowboys are scoring 7.9 more points per game than the Bulldogs have allowed against their previous opponents.
I believe that if the Cowboys can run the ball and create a turnover or two, they can upset Fresno State this week.
