The Colorado Buffaloes will host the Utah Utes this Friday.

 The Colorado Buffaloes come into this game with a 12-3 record and are currently ranked 5th in the Pac-12. The Buffaloes have lost 2 out of their last 3 games with their most recent game being a 56-55 win over Stanford. Through 15 games this season the leading scorer for Colorado has been Josh Scott who is averaging 17.9 points per game and 9.5 rebounds. George King is second on the team with 13.9 points per game and 4.1 rebounds.

 The Utah Utes come into this game with 11-4 record and are currently 11th in the Pac-12. The Utes have lost their past 2 games with their most recent game being a 71-58 loss to California. Through 15 games this season the leading scorer for the Utes has been Jakob Poeltl who is averaging 17.7 points per game and 9.3 rebounds. Jordan Loveridge is second on the team with 12.0 points per game and 3.9 rebounds.

 The Utah Utes are 1-5 against the spread in their last 6 Friday games. The Utes are 1-6 against the spread in their last 7 games vs. Pac-12 teams. Colorado is 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 Friday games. The Buffaloes are 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games following a win.  

The Colorado Buffaloes and the Utah Utes will battle in a Pac-12 showdown. Both of these teams have been struggling as of late. I think Colorado will win this game at home as Utah cant seem to figure things out right now. Take Colorado at home in what should be a close game.

Pick:
Colorado -1

On July 1, 2008 I typed into Google "How Do I start A Blog" and I started my first website called "Miami Mitch's Place" where i shared my college football Picks and predictions as well as opinion. By the Fall I had heard from many that the title made it sound like the site was about Miami so I changed it to "College Football Place" (cfbplace.com), After the 2008 college football season I change focus and launched CBBplace.com, it wasn't long after that when I realized I just wanted one place to add all sports, and that's when Sports Chat Place was born.

This site is a big Thank You to all of our readers, visitors, and community where we have been given a platform to talk to the masses about sports and hopefully help put you on some winners. If you need to reach me just shoot an email to [email protected]
