We’ve got a fun college basketball matchup coming on Tuesday from Coors Events Center in Boulder as the Denver Pioneers take on the Colorado Buffaloes.
Denver comes into this season following a 16-14 campaign last year. The Pioneers started out 9-5 but couldn’t string together more than two wins in a row the rest of the season, closing out with five losses in their final six games.

The Pioneers began their season on a sour note with an 83-69 loss to UC Irvine. Joe Rosga was the top scorer for Denver with 15 points, four rebounds, three assists and two steals, also going 8-of-8 from the line. Daniel Amigo registered a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds for the Pioneers.
Over on the Colorado side, they managed to go 19-14 in pre-tournament play last year. The Buffaloes started out well at 9-3, but then went on a seven-game skid. Colorado’s mark was good enough for an NIT bid, where they lost in the first round to UCF 79-74.
Colorado took a win in their opener against Northern Colorado 66-51. Tops in scoring for the Buffaloes that game was George King, who came up with 12 points and nine rebounds. Tory Miller-Stewart also had a nice outing on 11 points, five rebounds and an assist.
The under is 12-4 in the Buffaloes’ last 16 home games and 6-2 in their last eight games as a favorite. Colorado is also 6-2 ATS int heir last eight home games and 1-4 ATS in their last five games following a straight-up win.
Meanwhile, the over is 15-5-1 in the Pioneers’ last 21 overall and 6-1 in their last seven games following an ATS loss. Denver is also 0-5 ATS in their last five games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last five as a road underdog.
Denver came out pretty flat in their opener, and there really wasn’t a whole lot of doubt about what the outcome of that one would be. As for Colorado, they got a pretty well-rounded effort from their entire team, with pretty much everybody contributing. I like the Buffaloes to keep it going in this one and manage a cover.
