Handicapping Colorado vs Stanford
Working on a four-game winning streak, the Cardinal come into this contest with the knowledge that a victory assures them at least a share of the Pac-12 regular-season title heading into their season finale. Their defensive prowess will be the key to making that happen.
Stanford averages allowing just 57 points per game, even fewer than the Buffaloes’ similarly-stingy 57.8 ppga. Whether the Cardinal are able to disrupt the Colorado offense could decide this one. The Buffaloes have yet to lose this season when they shoot at least 44.3% from the field.
As far as the spread goes, there’s a seven-point difference between the scoring averages for these teams, so the numbers are sitting right on or below that. Taking Stanford to cover in this seems the safer wager. On the total, there could be room to come up yet. These two teams are more than capable of putting up 129 points or more despite their defensive talents.
