Colorado is 4-0 against the spread in their last 4 home games. The Buffaloes are 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
Colorado is one of the better home teams in the Pac-12 and should win this game over the less talented Washington State. Washington State has been able to hang with teams but not on the road. I could see this game getting ugly for Washington State. Take Colorado to win this game big.
