We are still two months away from practice starting off for Wyoming. That isn't stopping Vegas from putting out odds for the entire 2012 college football season. That is right, you can see how the Pokes are projected to do in match-ups for the entire season.
Beyond the Bets put forth the effort of developing spreads for all 798 FBS games this year. Wyoming fans were certainly optimistic about their team after an 8-6 finish last year. It is always interesting to see how Vegas views the Cowboys chances. Last year Wyoming was an underdog in most games, let's see what a difference a year makes.
Here is the entire breakdown
WEEK GAME 1 Wyoming at Texas -31 2 Toledo at Wyoming -1 3 Cal Poly at Wyoming -17.5 4 Wyoming -7 at Idaho 5 Wyoming at Nevada -8 6 Air Force at Wyoming -1.5 7 Wyoming at Fresno State -6 8 Boise State -15 at Wyoming 9 Colorado State at Wyoming -9.5 10 Wyoming -10 at New Mexico 11 Wyoming -8.5 at UNLV 12 San Diego State at Wyoming -3.5
Wyoming at Texas -31
Toledo at Wyoming -1
Cal Poly at Wyoming -17.5
Wyoming -7 at Idaho
Wyoming at Nevada -8
Air Force at Wyoming -1.5
Wyoming at Fresno State -6
Boise State -15 at Wyoming
Colorado State at Wyoming -9.5
Wyoming -10 at New Mexico
Wyoming -8.5 at UNLV
San Diego State at Wyoming -3.5
It is certainly exciting to see the Cowboys favored in seven out of twelve games. Obviously Texas shows up as the biggest spread of the season. The 31 point spread by the Longhorns is more then double the 15 point spread than the Boise game which is the second highest.
The road games with Fresno State and Nevada are going to be huge for the Pokes. Winning one or both of those games will be key. It has been awhile since Wyoming was favored over Air Force and San Diego State in the same year.
The 9.5 point spread for the Border War seems awfully high. In a rivalry game I would expect a very close game like we witnessed last year. Throw the records out when the Bronze Boot is on the line.
What do you think of the odds for these games? Which ones surprise you? I thought Wyoming would be favored by more then just one point over Toledo, the -6 for Fresno State also seems high to me. Post your thoughts below.
