The Oregon Ducks will travel south to Boulder and take on the Colorado Buffaloes this Thursday evening for a PAC-12 battle. The Buffaloes defeated the Ducks 82-78 last Tuesday.
Oregon is favored to win this rematch by two on the road here.
Oregon has figured things out after a rough non-conference stretch. The Ducks have won seven of their last eight, defeated both UCLA and USC on the road along the way. They blew out Civil War rival Oregon State 78-56 last time out in Eugene.
Will Richardson has really locked in since the start of Pac-12 play. The 6’5 guard scored a career-high 28 points in the win over USC, and he scored 26 points in the New Year’s Day win over Utah.
Richardson is leading the Ducks 14.9 points per game and 3.4 assists per game.
Red River transfers Jacob Young (Texas) and De’Vion Harmon (Oklahoma) have come in and given Dana Altman’s team some life. Young has over 140 games of experience, and he scored a game-high 23 points in the road win over UCLA.
Harmon is third on the team in scoring (10.8), while fellow transfer Quincy Guerrier (Syracuse) scored 22 points in the first meeting with Colorado.
Eric Williams Jr. remains a strong, vocal presence on the court for UO. The 6’7 forward double-doubled in the road win over Oregon State, and he’s averaging 8.5 ppg and 4.6 rpg.
N’Faly Dante alters every shot., and give the Ducks a mountain in the middle.
Colorado has quietly dropped five of their last seven games and they’re slowly approaching bubble territory. Losses to USC and UCLA aren’t alarming, but losses to Washington and Washington State may have raised eyebrows within the committee.
Jabari Walker has really to come into his own in year two. The 6’9 sophomore posted four straight double-doubles to end November, and he scored a season-high 24 points in the first meeting Oregon. Walker leads the team in both scoring (13.8) and rebounding (8.5), and could be an all PAC-12 player this season.
Walker meshes well with frontcourt mate Evan Battey, as the 259-pound senior commands the attention in the middle. Battey scored a season-high 20 points in the win over Washington State, but he’ll have avoid another quiet outing in this one..
Sophomores Keeshawn Barthelemy and Tristan da Silva have seen their roles grow in year two as well. Barthelemy orchestrates the offense, and averages a well-rounded 10.7 ppg, 2.8 rpg, and a team-leading 2.5 apg.
da Silva scored a season-high 22 points in the home win over Washington.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Oregon is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games.
- Colorado is 6-4 ATS in their last 10 home games.
- Under is 9-3 in Ducks last 12 as a favorite.
Free Oregon Ducks vs. Colorado Buffaloes NCAAB Prediction: Oregon to Win
Despite defeating Oregon last week, the Buffaloes are in the midst of an alarming skid
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Oregon ML (-135)
Oregon has looked really sharp since January 1st. The Ducks found their stride offensively in December, and they’ll have a shot to get some revenge here. They took a five-point lead into halftime, and if they come out strong again, I don’t think Dana Altman let’s the game get away from his team here. They’re deep and talented, and worth a pretty penny here.
With another small margin at hand for the road favorites, take Oregon’s ML here for safety.
