College Basketball Betting Trends

Colorado

The Buffaloes are 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games as an underdog. Colorado is 13-38-1 ATS in its last 52 road games.

Oregon

The Ducks are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games as a home favorite. The home team is 13-3 ATS in the last 16 meetings.

Prediction: 

The Ducks have not lost at home all season and this is a revenge spot after losing 74-65 at Colorado earlier this season. With the added motivation of a first-place tie being on the line, Oregon should be ready to bounce back from two poor performances in a row. The crowd will be loud and supportive and I am betting on Oregon to put together one of its best performances of the season.
