Wyoming 86% -5.5 -6.0 In one of the most lopsided bet games of the week, nearly nine out of ten spread bets are going with the 7-4 Cowboys to cover on the road, especially after the sportsbooks adjusted their lines to take a valuable half-point away from the home dog Rams.
Colorado State 14% 5.5 6.0
Oklahoma 52% 3.5 3.0 Great value here, with the betting public nearly split down the middle as to who to take in this Big 12 showdown.
