College Basketball Picks: Oregon Ducks @ Colorado Buffaloes
Date: Thursday, March 7th, 9:00 ET
Location: Coors Events Center, Boulder, CO
Oregon vs. Colorado Live TV: ESPN2
The Coors Events Center is going to be rocking on Thursday night, as the fans there know that a win in this game will certainly punch their ticket to the NCAA Tournament. The Buffaloes are an up and down team, and it wouldn’t truly be shocking if they won this game by 30 or lost it by 30. These last four games have been scary, as the team is 2-2 SU and 1-3 ATS in those outings, but history is definitely on Colorado’s side in these big time games. Not only do the Buffs have wins over the Arizona Wildcats at home and these Ducks on the road, but they also have a scalp against the Colorado State Rams and had Arizona dead to rights on the road to boot. Oregon hasn’t nearly been the same team since G Dominic Artis got hurt over a month ago. Granted, he is back in the fold, and the team has won five of six games, but there really haven’t been any big time games that the Ducks have had to win. The last three have all come at home, and the only win of the bunch of any legitimate note came against the Stanford Cardinal, a team that isn’t going to get into the NCAA Tournament. Colorado isn’t the better team in this game, but home court advantage, as always, is key in conference play. Back the Buffs in what should be a great game on Thursday night.
Oregon vs. Colorado Pick: Colorado Buffaloes -3
Oregon vs. Colorado Prediction: Colorado 69 – Oregon 63
