College Basketball Betting Trends

Colorado

The Buffaloes are 0-4 ATS in their last four games overall. Colorado is 3-9 ATS in its last 12 games as an underdog.

Kansas

The Jayhawks are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 home games. Kansas is 1-4 ATS in its last five Saturday games.

Prediction:

The Jayhawks have had a nice start to the season, but will have some rust to shake off here as they have not played since November 27. I think the Buffaloes are good enough to take advantage. While Colorado has not played the toughest of schedules, it does have two top 100 victories and all but one of its seven wins have been by double digits. Look for a spirited effort by the Buffaloes tonight to stay within the number.
