  • Windy weather is expected in Laramie for Saturday's Nevada vs. Wyoming game (2 p.m. ET) at War Memorial Stadium.
  • Here's the detailed forecast, as well as how it's already moving the over/under for this matchup.

It’s been a windy start to the season in Laramie, Wyo. The Wyoming Cowboys have played four home games so far, three of which involved steady winds of at least 15 mph.

The weather forecast for Saturday’s Nevada vs. Wyoming matchup predicts more of the same, with breezes of 21 mph expected at War Memorial Stadium.

And based on the early line movement, bettors have caught onto windy Wyoming unders.

Two of the three windy Wyoming games this season have finished under the closing total, and 88% of bettors are banking on another low-scoring game this week.

According to our Windy Unders Pro Betting System, 56.3% of college football games played in winds of at least 13 mph have gone under since 2003, and that record spikes to 64-39-3 (62.1%) when average winds top 20 mph.

All of this adds up to the Nevada vs. Wyoming over/under plummeting from an opener of 48 down to 43 at the time of writing.

One note of caution — forecasts can fluctuate drastically, especially four days in advance, so there is a chance that Saturday’s weather in Laramie will not be as severe as expected as of Tuesday afternoon.

We’ll continue to update this post throughout the week as Saturday’s Nevada vs. Wyoming weather forecast becomes more clear.
