Betting Colorado State Rams
The Rams are the road dogs according to the best College Football sportsbooks. Colorado State heads into this one with a 1-2 record on the season. The Rams have a win over Wyoming and losses to Fresno State and Boise State.
The Rams have played against some stiff competition in their first three games. They got off on the wrong foot at 1-2. Colorado State started the season with a 38-17 loss to Fresno State. Then they got a bounce back 34-24 win over Wyoming. The Rams’ latest outing was a 52-21 ass-whipping to Boise State.
In the loss to the Broncos, starting quarterback Patrick O’Brien had 140 yards and one pick. A’Jon Vivens had 76 rushing yards and a TD on 12 carries. Dante Wright had five catches for 109 yards.
Sportsbooks for US players say that the Rams are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games following an ATS loss. 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games following a straight-up loss. 9-4 ATS in their last 13 Thursday games. And 2-5 ATS in their last seven games on grass.
Colorado State is 1-3 this season. They were supposed to begin the season on October 24 against New Mexico. That game probably would have been a win. However, that game was canceled as was the UNLV games last week.
That is how the cookie crumbles in 2020. The Rams last played against Boise State on November 12. They predictably lost 52-21 as a 14-point underdog. The Broncos gained just 291 yards, but they scored the first touchdown on a blocked punt return. They later scored another TD on another blocked punt return.
They scored their last on a fumble recovery in the end zone. To add insult to injury, they blocked a short field goal and returned it for a 91-yard touchdown. That amounts to 28 points on three special teams snafus and one fumble in the end zone.
Betting Air Force Falcons
Air Force is 2-2 this season. The Falcons have lost to San Jose State and Boise State and beaten Navy and New Mexico. Air Force has two big wins and two bad losses so far this season. The Falcons started with a 40-7 win over Navy. Then they lost to San Jose State 17-6 and Boise State 49-30.
In their latest game on Friday, Air Force got a dominant 28-0 shutout win over New Mexico. In the win over the Lobos, starting quarterback Haaziq Daniels passed for 66 yards and rushed for 55 and a TD on 12 carries. Brad Roberts had 177 rushing yards and three TDs on 28 carries.
As recorded by sportsbooks for US players, the Falcons are 4-1 ATS in their past five games on grass. 5-2 ATS in their last seven games at home. 5-11 ATS playing a team with a losing record. And 0-5 ATS in their last five Thursday games.
Colorado State vs. Air Force NCAAF Pick
We’re going to go with Air Force on this one. Colorado State’s loss to Boise State was strange. The Rams held the Broncos to just 291 total yards, but also allowed three non-offensive touchdowns. That essentially tipped the scales of the game. Consider also a 1-of-15 third-down-conversion rate. There isn’t a lot of confidence in Colorado State at the moment. Air Force has been scoring very well thus far and they’ll be just fine in this game.
