Last Year's Betting Odds

Last year, the Wyoming Cowboys were ahead in odds against the Golden Flashes. This was the result of the team’s season scores and results, and bettors nailed a solid win by betting on Wyoming at the end of the day.

In particular, last year’s game featured the Cowboys as moneyline favorites. That meant that a $280 stake on the Cowboys at -280 odds would result in a $100 profit for fans and bettors. However, if bettors had wagered on the Golden Flashes, a $100 bet would have earned bettors a $240 profit at +240 odds.

Regarding the point spread, a bet on the Cowboys at -10.5 and over 42.5 points would have allowed fans to make some solid earnings.
