A win on Thursday night over Washington State probably isn’t going to get Colorado back into the top 25, but it will be good for their psyche. After a strong start to the year, the Buffs have some questions after their worst loss of the year.
Washington State is a very underrated team coming into this matchup, especially while getting 13 points which seems about 6 too high. A 1-3 road record isn’t doing the Cougars any favors here though.
Washington State Cougars
Washington State seems to be finding their stride which is why it’s weird they are over a dozen point favorites on Thursday night. The Cougars have won two in a row – both as underdogs – but also at home.
In the last two games WSU has scored a 71-62 win over #13 Oregon as +9 home underdogs and just beat Oregon State 89-76 on Saturday as +3.5 home favorites. The wins came within 3 days of each other as well.
If Washington State’s offense can click like they did with 89 points on Saturday, forget the spread this is a ML play. Isaac Bonton went for 34 in that game and CJ Elleby (22) and Noah Williams (17) provided scoring depth as well.
Bonton has scored in double figures in 8 straight games, but CU’s main strength is their defense, which ranks in the top 40 in the country allowing only 62 ppg.
This could end up being a low scoring game (O/U 138.5)/ Colorado blowout not just because of the CU defense, but the WSU offense. The Cougars do have the worst FG% in the Pac 12 while shooting 40.6 from the field (320th in the nation).
Colorado hopes the last game was just a snafu, a 54-75 loss at Arizona in which the Buffs shot just 18-49 (36.7%) from the field.
Colorado needs to have a short memory and chalk up Saturday’s loss to playing a decent team and on the road. The Buffaloes are 8-2 in the comfort of the CU Events Center this year. But are they 13 points better than WSU here?
Does the Colorado atmosphere fatigue opposing defenses? The ‘over’ has hit in 8 straight games in Boulder with the Buffs having two 90 point outbursts in their last 4 at home. That includes a 91-52 win over Utah on January 12th.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Cougars are 7-22-1 ATS last 30 road games
- Cougars are 5-2 ATS last 7 vs. a team with a winning SU record
- Buffaloes are 4-1 ATS last 5 home games
- Home team is 4-0 ATS last 4 H2H meetings
Free Washington State Cougars vs. Colorado Buffaloes NCAAB Prediction:
It’s hard to go to Colorado and get a win this year. In fact, Washington State lost 92-60 in Boulder last season and the home team has won 9 straight in this series.
Even so, a lot of things have to go right for a team to cover a 13 point spread in a division game. Washington State has two straight upsets over Oregon teams – albeit at home – but even a 10 point loss covers here.
