Against the Spread (ATS)
OREGON (-1.5, -115) heads to Boulder looking to make team history against Colorado (+1.5, -106), as the Ducks are 0-8 SU all time in Colorado. The Buffs spanked them 73-51 last season Feb. 2. However, the shooting woes of CU, and the hot shooting this season of Oregon, should result in the first-ever Ducks win in Boulder.
OVER 138.5 (-106) is the way to go, as Oregon’s offense has been red hot. The Ducks post over 80 points per game, and even if they’re slightly below their average, the Over is looking mighty tasty in this one.
