Oregon vs Colorado Betting Prediction

Colorado comes into this game as one of the hottest teams in the country, as they have won eight games in a row, and they are most likely in the tournament regardless of what happens in this game. Oregon was 12-8 in conference play, but they just knocked off Arizona in their last game. The Ducks have moved themselves onto the bubble for the NCAA Tournament, but they can take that out of the equation with a win here. Colorado is scoring 80 points per game and they are shooting over 49% from the field, but their defense has been the difference recently. Colorado won both regular season meetings by scores of 79-75 and 86-70, but I feel like this might be Oregon’s time. The Ducks played a perfect second half against Arizona and I think they can keep this game very close, if not win. Take the Ducks here.
