Wy­oming over Cen­tral Michi­gan by 4

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

To say that the Wy­oming of­fense looked like it was led by Gra­cie Allen rather than star QB Josh Allen – pro­jected by most to be a Top 10 pick in the 2018 draft be­fore the sea­son started – would be an un­der­state­ment con­sid­er­ing the Cow­boys ranked 126th in the na­tion in to­tal of­fense (287 YPG) and not much bet­ter in 1st Down of­fense (No. 124). Yes, Allen has been dinged up for most of the sea­son and his re­ceivers dropped more balls than a drunken jug­gler but the good news is they’ll be able to make amends against a Cen­tral Michi­gan crew that is 2-10 ‘In The Stats’ against fel­low bowlers the past two sea­sons and 0-3 SU in bowl af­fairs since 2014, al­low­ing just un­der 42 PPG. The Chippe­was also ranked next to last in Passes In­ter­cepted (19) this sea­son, which doesn’t bode well against a Cow­boys club that led the land in TO Mar­gin (+1.33). And though we don’t like the idea that early money is pour­ing in on the Cow­boys (from pick to -3), our 2017

in­forms us that MWC fa­vorites are 2-9 ATS against foes off an ATS win. That brings into play this lit­tle tid­bit: MAC bowlers are 3-9 SUATS as dogs of 3 or fewer points since 2008. Say Good­night Gra­cie, err, Cen­tral… and lay it or leave it. Satur­day, De­cem­ber 23
