College Basketball Betting Trends


The Buffaloes are 4-0 ATS in their last four games versus the Big 12. Colorado is 15-36-1 ATS in its last 52 road games.


The Longhorns are 0-5 ATS in their last last five games. Texas is 1-4 ATS in its last five non-conference games.


The Longhorns were one of the unluckiest teams in the nation this season, losing a lot of close games against strong opponents. But they have seemingly turned a corner lately with a couple close wins in the NIT Tourney and now face a Colorado team that struggles on the road. Texas is a talented squad on the offensive end and should be able to score enough against what is a good but not overwhelming Buffaloes defense. Look for the Longhorns to win by enough to cover here.
