The Colorado Buffaloes have had time to think about their loss to Wyoming and look to get back on track. On the season, Colorado is averaging 62.7 points on 43.9 percent shooting and allowing 54.3 points on 34.9 percent shooting. Josh Scott leads Colorado with 14.7 points and nine rebounds while Xavier Johnson is averaging 11.3 points on 40 percent shooting. Xavier Talton leads the Buffaloes with 2.3 assists and Wesley Gordon is grabbing seven rebounds. The Colorado Buffaloes were expected to be that sleeper team in the Pac-12 and they’ve shown nothing to change that. The Buffaloes are shooting a solid 73.8 percent from the free throw line and grabbing 39 rebounds per game. The one thing Colorado could improve is the 13 turnovers its averaging each contest.
The Falcons are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 road games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a S.U. win. The Buffaloes are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 non-conference games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games. The road team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
We're getting 16 free points with a team that's shooting aove 50 percent from beyond the arc. I'm going to ride the hot hand here and back Air Force.
