The Colorado Buffaloes look to get themselves back in the top-25 with a marquee win on the road against a talented Stanford Cardinal team looking for another resume-boosting win. Both teams are in the top five of the Pac-12.
Colorado enters this contest 9-4 in conference play, trailing only USC and UCLA by one game. The Buffaloes are coming off their best defensive game of the season in a 78-49 blowout victory over Oregon State. The Buffaloes posted a defensive rating of 72 while holding the Beavers to 4-of-16 from beyond-the-arc.
The Buffaloes average 75.3 points per game while surrendering 63.9 points a contest. The Buffs also have one of the more experienced teams in the country led by senior guard McKinley Wright. The two-time All-Pac-12 selection is leading the Buffaloes with 14.5 points per game on 49.5 percent shooting.
Colorado is a balanced team offensively, with eight different players averaging at least 5 points a night. Tulsa transfer Jeriah Horne is second on the team with 11.7 points a night, while fellow forward Evan Battey averages double figures in points as well.
Colorado is 13th in the nation in offensive rating and 25th in the country in 3-point percentage. The Buffaloes are extremely efficient at the free throw line as well, knocking down a nation-leading 83 percent of their attempts at the line.
Stanford is 8-5 in conference play as they try to assert themselves toward the top of a crowded Pac-12. The Cardinal are coming off back-to-back wins over California and look to hand Colorado a loss on the first game of the Buffaloes’ four-game road trip.
Stanford ranks in the top-20 nationally in defensive rating. The Cardinal are an athletic team that can disrupt passing lanes effectively. They are allowing opponents to shoot just 32.9 percent from deep this year, which serves well against an offensive force like the Buffaloes.
Where the Cardinal must improve is from the outside. They are hitting just 31.1 percent of their 3’s and are also 275th in the country in turnover rate offensively.
Oscar da Silva will present a problem for the Buffs. The star forward averages 19 points and 7 rebounds a game. The loss of Daejon Davis hurst, but Jaiden Delaire and Ziaire Williams have stepped up to both pitch in double figures in points.

Free Colorado Buffaloes vs. Stanford Cardinal NCAAB Prediction:
Colorado and the under is the play here. Even with Stanford being as good a cover team as they are at home, this isn’t the same team without Davis. CU is firing on all cylinders and is much more trustworthy from an offensive standpoint than the Cardinal. Given how good these teams have played defensively of late, the under is another good play.
