The regular season is coming to a close in the very competitive PAC 12. Utah has a shot to tie Oregon for the title.
These programs entered the conference together so they are linked but there is not much rivalry to this matchup as far as I can tell.
Just two good teams looking to improve their resumes. Colorado might be in but a road victory here probably seals it.
The Buffs are underrated as a basketball program but I like the way they play. They are not the most talented group but they are always competitive.
This is going to be the swansong of Josh Scott. I have always liked his game and he keeps getting a little better. He gives them a very reliable offensive option and you can play him late in games because the makes free throws.
Colorado surrounds him with players that can take and make threes. They have for regulars that are making more than 40% of their attempts which makes them very dangerous every night.
Scott doesn’t have to do all the banging either thanks to the presence of Wesley Gordon. He is a rebounder and inside presence who knows his role.
The Buffs just swept the Arizona school at home. A road win would be a great way to close the season. They are just 4-6 on the road this season.
The Utes enter the final contest a game behind Oregon for first place. A pretty good season overall considering they lost their best player to the NBA.
They are closing strong too with six straight victories heading into the finale. They definitely seem to be peaking at the right time.
This year the lead do is undoubtedly Jacob Poetl. He leads the team with 17 and 9 and is part of a frontcourt that is probably underrated nationally. Jordan Loveridge and Kyle Kuzma are also double digit scorers.
They are just looking for lead guard to become a really great team. Brandon Taylor has his moments but I am not a big fan of his game overall.
The Utes have only lost one game at home and are heavy favourites in this one. They won a low scoring affair over Colorado in January.

Free Colorado Buffaloes vs. Utah Utes CBB Prediction:
This game definitely has way more meaning for Colorado. I expect that they will keep it close throughout and just might steal it.
Those are eleven really big points. Seems a little inflated.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Colorado +11
As long as they can keep Poetl in check there is no reason the Buffs can win a close one this time around.
