The Colorado Buffaloes and the Washington Huskies will match up on the college basketball court Saturday.

Colorado is sitting at 16-10 this year. The Buffaloes had a nice five-game win streak going versus Oregon, UCLA, USC, Arizona State and Arizona but lost to Washington State their last time out.

In the loss to the Cougars, Colorado’s top scorers were Evan Battey and McKinley Wright, each with 13 points alongside 14 combined rebounds. Tyler Bey added a double-double for the Buffaloes there with 12 points and 12 boards.

Over on the Washington side, they’re 21-5 this year. After dropping to Arizona State on February 9, the Huskies have won their last two outings over Washington State and Utah.

In the win over the Utes, Washington’s Nahziah Carter put up 12 points and one rebound to lead the team. Noah Dickerson added 11 points and three boards, and three other Huskies had 10 points apiece.

The Buffaloes are 5-1 ATS in their last six overall and 5-1 ATS in their last six versus the Pac-12. Colorado is 15-35-1 ATS in their last 51 road games and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 Saturday games.

Meanwhile, the Huskies are 6-0 ATS in their last six home games and 9-1 ATS in their last 10 after an ATS win. Washington is 11-2 ATS in their last 13 versus the Pac-12 and 10-4 in their last 14 Saturday games.

Colorado could easily be sitting on a six-game win streak right now, as they were barely beaten by the Cougars 76-74. Prior to that, the Buffaloes were on a nice roll, aside from a couple of the games becoming nail-biters.

As for Washington, they’re not scoring as well as I’d like these days (sub-70 in four of the last five games). I’m going to stick with Colorado to bounce back here and at least make things interesting.

Pick:
Colorado Buffaloes +8
