ANALYSIS

Wyoming vs. Air Force Prediction: Trust the Cowboys on Friday Night

It’s been about a week since Wyoming head coach Jeff Linder ripped into his team for underperforming, resulting in multiple players stepping away from the team. What happened in the first game after this went down? Wyoming beat New Mexico, a bubble tournament team, 70-56 as a 10-point underdog. Will Linder keep the momentum going tonight in Wyoming?

Wyoming vs. Air Force Prediction

There’s no question that Hunter Maldonado will be the best player on the court tonight. The star point guard has been carrying Wyoming in recent weeks. With no Noah Reynolds, Ethan Anderson, and Graham Ike redshirting, Maldonado is the only elite scoring option left.

Coach Linder made sure his thoughts about the direction of this team were heard this week, emphasizing that the guys remaining will play with immense effort. Linder emphasized, "When I walked down that ramp with those guys (the other night) we have that are here now -- it's never going to be perfect, but they're going to die trying -- The effort is going to be there, trying every possession to play at the hardest level they can.” He clarified that his guys could either step up and play harder or leave. Maybe the few that left weren’t the best locker room guys, as Wyoming looked like a completely different team the other night against New Mexico. I like and respect the direction this team is moving, and recommend buying low on the Cowboys while they try to play spoiler the rest of the season.

Wyoming is rolling out a veteran starting lineup filled with players who care. These guys want to be here, and played like it in their first game without the gentlemen who quit. It’s looking like Xavier DuSell, Hunter Maldonado, Brendan Wenzel, Hunter Thompson and Jeremiah Oden will be starting tonight, four seasoned veterans. Maldonado and Thompson will lead Wyoming to a blowout victory at home tonight.

In the first matchup between Air Force and Wyoming, the Falcons covered the -4.5, winning by eight points at home. Now we're seeing a flipped line the second time, after Air Force took the first matchup? This line is fishy, and I want in. The opener of Wyoming -4 didn’t last long; I’m seeing some -5’s floating around. Grab this line now before it gets any worse. These teams aren’t making the tournament unless they pull off a miracle conference championship. At this point in the season, handicapping effort is just as important as talent. The Cowboys will be hungry to avenge their January loss to the Falcons.
