This match-up will see the Colorado Buffaloes take on the Kansas Jayhawks. This game just so happens to be on during the ACC football championship game. Once that game becomes a blowout, this game should offer a ton of excitement as an alternative.
The Buffs are a bit of a surprise this season having started undefeated through seven games. They have not had the hardest schedule by any means, but this will be by far their toughest test. Also, note that this will be their first true road game since they played a few games on a neutral court and were listed as the “road team”.
Now Colorado has not looked great on offense at all. They are only scoring an average of 69 points. Something needs to change and fast because 69 is most likely not going to get the job done at Kansas. Part of the issue is they only shoot 41.3% from the field.
Their leading scorer is Tyler Bey, who is averaging 14 points per game. Bey also leads the team with 12 rebounds per game, steals with 2.1 per game and blocks with 2.1 per game. Other than Bey, the Buffaloes only have two other guys who average more than 12 points per game. That being said, if Bey starts to struggle, who else is going to step up?
The Buffaloes have however focused on playing defense this season. They allow an average of 56.3 points per game. Even though this is the 11th best defense in the country, Colorado has yet to play a team like Kansas and on the road for that matter.
They are holding teams to 37.8% shooting and that is the only way I can see them hanging around in this game.
The Jayhawks have had one blunder when they lost to Duke in their season opener. Since then they have won six games in a row, which includes a Maui Invitational Championship. That was their last game when they beat Dayton 90-84 in overtime.
Kansas has had one of the better scoring offenses in the country this season. They are averaging 83 points per game, which ranks 17th. What is more impressive is they shoot 51.9% from the field. This is the third best shooting percentage as a team in the country.
The Jayhawks roster is filled with talent and they have multiple guys that can take over a game. Their leading scorer this season has been Devon Dotson. He is averaging 19.7 points per game. Behind him is Udoka Azubuike, who averages 15 points per game. Essentially these two guys are the key for Kansas. If both of them struggle, it is going to be hard for the Jayhawks to find enough scoring.
This Jayhawks defense is also play defense at a very high level. They allow an average of 64.7 points per game. Teams shoot just 38.8% against them from the field.
At home, the Kansas defense has been even better, allowing an average of 60.7 points per game. As long as they do not let Tyler Bey take over, the Jayhawks will be fine in this game.
CBB Betting Trends:

Free Colorado Buffaloes vs. Kansas Jayhawks NCAAB Prediction:
This Jayhawks offense is very explosive when they get hot and I believe they will run away with this game. I like the over more because of how much Kansas scores on their home floor.
