College Basketball Betting Trends

Colorado

The Buffaloes are 16-39-1 ATS in their last 56 games as a road underdog. Colorado is 1-6 ATS in its last seven games.

Stanford

The Cardinal are 25-10 ATS in their last 35 games as a home favorite. Stanford is 7-22 ATS in its last 29 Sunday games.

Prediction:

The loss by the Buffaloes at a mediocre California squad three days ago is very concerning, especially with it being their second straight loss to a subpar opponent. It doens't get any easier tonight against a Stanford squad that is putting itself in the NCAA Tournament bubble talk with three straight wins. Tonight is the kind of signature win over a ranked opponent that would go a long way for the Cardinal. Stanford lost 81-74 earlier this season at the Buffaloes, but I think they get their revenge here.
