The Colorado Buffaloes are 14-2 and ranked 15th in the nation. CU has won their last four games including their first three Pac-12 games. Spencer Dinwiddie leads the Buffaloes averaging 15.2 points per game. Askia Booker is averaging 13.9 points, Josh Scott is averaging 13.6 points and 9.4 rebounds, and Xavier Johnson is averaging 10.3 points and 5.9 rebounds. Colorado is averaging 77.6 points and they are shooting 45.5 percent while defensively they are allowing 67.9 points and their opponents are shooting 42.4 percent. Colorado is 3-0 on the road this season.
Washington is 2-5 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, 0-4 against the spread in their last four home games, and 2-6 against the spread in their last eight Sunday games. Colorado is 7-2 against the spread following a win, 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games overall, and 1-4-1 against the spread against the Pac-12.
Washington has been holding their own and then some in the Pac-12 but CU may just be more than just a little too much so I am going to lay the points with Colorado.
