The Colorado Buffaloes look to improve on their own 5-1 start, with their last game resulting in a 75-60 victory over Wofford. Buffs’ leading scorer Xavier Johnson did just that en route to his 1st double-double of the season, connecting on 9 of 14 from the floor with a pair of threes and 7 of 11 from the foul line for 27 points to go along with a game-high 12 rebounds. Derrick White, George King and Wesley Gordon each recorded 10 points in the win, with Gordon separating himself by pulling down 9 rebounds. Xavier Johnson leads Colorado with 15 points per game, Wesley Gordon is grabbing a team-high 9.5 rebounds per game and Derrick White is Colorado’s leading passer with 3.8 assists per game. As a team, Colorado is scoring 78.7 points per game on 45% shooting from the field, 38.9% from downtown and 73.1% from the foul line.

Colorado State is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 7-19-1 ATS in their last 27 non-conference games while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 vs. the Pac-12. Colorado is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the under is 8-2 in their last 10 vs. the MWC. Colorado State is 3-13 ATS in the last 16 meetings between these two teams.

Both of these teams have gotten out to 5-1 starts, but the Rams haven’t really beaten anyone noteworthy. Colorado on the other hand has a victory over Texas and fell just short against Notre Dame. Not to mention the Buffaloes have downright owned this series.

Not a fan of the line, but the Buffaloes are the play here.
