The Colorado Buffaloes are coming off of a loss at UCLA after reeling off three wins. Colorado is 7-5 in the Pac-12, 3-6 away from home, and they are in fifth place in the Pac-12 standings. Josh Scot is Colorado’s leading scorer averaging 14.4 points and 8.6 rebounds per game. Askia Booker is averaging 14.3 points, Xavier Johnson is averaging 11.7 points and 6.2 rebounds, Wesley Gordon is averaging 6.6 points and 6.6 rebounds.

Colorado can still make the NCAA Tournament with a string finish.
USC is 2-5 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the spread, 3-8-1 against the spread in their last 12 games, and 1-5-1 against the spread in their last seven home games. Colorado is 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games, 1-5-1 against the spread against a team with a losing record, and 27-13-1 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the spread.
My free pick in this one is going to be on the total and I am expeting an under. I will also have a pick on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
