Wyoming vs Texas Prediction
The current betting odds have Texas listed as a 29 point favorite in this game according to Draftkings Sportsbook. Texas is 2-0 this season and they are now ranked in the top 4 of the country after going into Tuscaloosa and beating Alabama in their last game. That was a really good win for them but they still have something to prove this year in their last season of the Big 12 and they will be looking to follow up that huge road win with another big win over a bad team at home. Wyoming doesn't have a great team this season and they usually play a lot better in their home games. Being on the road in this game doesn't help them at all and they don't really have the talent to keep with Texas either. Texas is going to roll them with all the momentum they have from that Alabama win last week. The best way to place a bet here is on Texas to cover the spread in this game.
Wyoming Texas Prediction: Our NCAAF Pick for Saturday, September 16, 2023 (8:00 pm ET start time) is Texas 49 Wyoming 10.
