Wyoming vs. UNI College NCAAB Betting Preview and Analysis

Although the Cowboys come with a decent 25-9 win record to this game, they were just 11-18 ATS on the betting lines this season. Conversely, the on top of their 30-3 SU record, the Panthers posted a 19-9-3 ATS on the spreads this season, in spite of playing in a superior conference (Missouri Valley) than Wyoming’s Mountain West conference. Deductively, it is going to be tall order for the Cowboys to find an SU or even ATS against the Panthers, who are largely considered by most pundits as one of the most dangerous sleepers in this year’s NCAA Tournament at 66/1 odds. Also, Northern Iowa has a lethal offense, spearheaded by Seth Tuttle (15.3 PPG and 6.8 RPG), and a mean defense that is allowing just 54.1 points per game. Still, Wyoming delivered as big surprise in the Mountain West Tournament, upsetting both Boise State and San Diego State to win the conference title. Also, the Cowboys offense, led by forward Larry Nance Jr. (16.1 PPG), has been on the come-up and is often able to raise its level of competitiveness to match its opponent. For instance, in the win over Boise, the Cowboys put up a 67-65 show, while in the San Diego State victory, they outscored their opponents 45-43. It is probably because of this admirable quality that UNI opened the NCAAB First Round betting lines as 7.5-point favorites, but have dropped a little in some betting houses as the game approaches.
