Before you consider your Kent State vs. Wyoming picks or college football predictions, you need to see what the SportsLine Projection Model has to say.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times. Over the past five-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of almost $3,700 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread. It also entered the 2021-22 college football bowl season on a 43-29 run on all top-rated college football side picks. Anyone who has followed it has seen HUGE returns.
The model knows Wyoming rolled past Georgia State 38-17 in the 2019 Arizona Bowl after routing Central Michigan 37-14 two years earlier in its first appearance in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. However, the Cowboys lost six of their final eight regular-season games after beginning 2021 with four straight victories. Kent State's defense will be paying close attention to freshman wideout Isaiah Neyor, who had 11 of Wyoming's 14 receiving touchdowns this year.
The model also knows the Golden Flashes are coming off a 41-23 loss to Northern Illinois in the MAC championship game - their first conference title contest since 2012. Kent State lost the first three bowl games in school history before ending the slide in 2019, when it outslugged Utah State 51-41 in the Frisco Bowl. Quarterback Dustin Crum was the MVP of that contest after completing 21-of-26 pass attempts for 289 yards and two touchdowns while running for another score, and the graduate student was named the MAC Player of the Year for 2021 after throwing for 2,922 yards and 16 TDs while tying for the team lead with 11 rushing touchdowns.
Now the model has simulated Wyoming vs. Kent State 10,000 times, and the results are in. We can tell you that the model is leaning Under on the total, and it also says one side of the spread hits well over 50 percent of the time. You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in your own picks.
