College Basketball Betting Trends

Dayton

The Flyers are 4-1 ATS in their last five Saturday games. Dayton is 6-2 ATS in its last eight games as a favorite. 

Colorado

The Buffaloes are 5-11 ATS in their last 16 neutral site games. Colorado is 1-7 ATS in its last eight games overall.

Prediction:

Dayton is a legit good team that took Kansas to the brink and has an offense ranked sixth nationally in adjusted offensive efficiency, but in a neutral setting against a decent Colorado team this one might be closer than the spread suggests. The Buffaloes have an outstanding defense that could even the playing field a bit and as long as they carve out enough production on the offensive end I think they give the Flyers quite a test. Taking the points in this spot.
