Colorado vs. Arizona Prediction
Using the momentum created on Wednesday in a blowout win over Washington State, Colorado will look to keep pace with Arizona at 5:30PM ET.
Sean Miller's Wildcats opened as a 7-point favorite over the Buffaloes but according to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the line has been bought up to Arizona -7.5. As for the total, the number currently sits at 141 points.
Colorado won the only meeting with Arizona this season, beating the Wildcats 75-72 on February 24. That was the game where Miller suggested that one of his players might be prompted to retaliate with a punch in self-defense after Colorado fans stormed the Coors Events Center floor following the win.
Miller and Co. won't have the same court-storming issues tonight but they could have issues with Josh Scott, who was dominant against Arizona two weeks ago. Limited to just six points on 3-of-8 shooting against the Cougars on Wednesday, he still made an impact with a career-high five assists. Josh Fortune is coming off a strong shooting performance so if Scott can find his scoring touch then Colorado shouldn't have problems keeping the score within 7.5.
