College Basketball Betting Trends

California 

The Golden Bears are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall. California is 0-6 ATS in its last six road games.

Colorado

The Buffaloes are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The favorite is 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings.

Prediction:

There is no doubt Colorado is the much better team here but with bitter rival Stanford on deck in two days this could be a look-ahead situation. While the last three Bears games have been at home, they have all been competitive and only three times this season have the Bears been beaten by more than 17 points. Cal is not good, but it can scrap it out most of the time this one staying closer than projected.
