The Colorado State Rams (0-3) are hoping for their first win in 2022 when they host Sacramento State Hornets (2-0) Saturday at 4 pm ET. Below, we analyze typical math booklines around Sacramento vs. Colorado oddsmake our expert College football picks and predictions.
Besides being winless, the Rams have not covered a difference this season, while 0-3 are rarer. Coach Jay Norville came from Nevada to fix Colorado State. So far, it’s been a disaster, but it’s a disaster we’ve seen come.
Colorado State will be the first FBS opponent to play in Sacramento State since the Hornets lost to Cal 42-30 last September. The fact that Cal managed to score 42 points is a good sign for Colorado.
The Rams have not lost a game with less than double digits this season. This includes a loss at home 34-19 to Middle Tennessee on September 10. It was the only game in which CSU scored more than 7 points. The team isn’t very good and I wouldn’t be surprised if this Sacramento state competition turns out to be the Rams’ win in the 2022 season.

Sacramento, Colorado Picks & Forecasts
Colorado 28 Sacramento 24
Take Colorado (+145).
It’s rare to get ML in an FBS vs FCS game where you can justify taking it. This is one of those games that, with Colorado’s poor state, the +145 ML is well worth the risk. If you’d rather get 3.5 points, that’s understandable.
The suggested option is to split a file whole unit between the Colorado State ml (+145) and the CSU . spread (+3.5–115).
It’s hard to pick a side on this one because it’s going to be soon. Plus, the Rams are hard to trust, but with them getting more than just a field goal at home, I’d risk it, but only a small bet.
Take without 57.5 (-115) – (115).
Colorado State scored just 33 combined points in 3 games. Even facing a lower-tier opponent in Sacramento, I don’t see an offensive outcome coming in this one.
None of these teams are good. When that’s the case, take Under.
