The Colorado Buffaloes (21-9, CONF 11-7) and Utah Utes (15-14, CONF 6-11) face off in a Pac 12 showdown at the Jon M. Huntsman Center. Colorado beat Utah 91-52 earlier this season, and the home team has won the last five games played between the two squads. 

A few weeks ago Colorado looked like a lock to make the tournament, but at this point they might need some help. Coming into this game Colorado has lost three games in a row and over the last ten games they have only covered two spreads. 

Colorado is averaging 70.9 points per game but over the last three games they have failed to score more than 64 points. Away from home Colorado is averaging 63.7 points while the defense is giving up 64.8..

Colorado is led by McKinley Wright IV who is averaging 14 points while shooting 45.2 percent from the field. 

The Utes are having a bad season and coming into this game they have lost seven of their last ten games. At home this season Utah is averaging 80.2 points per game while shooting 49.1 percent from the field. 

Over the last five games, Utah’s defense has really struggled giving up 74 points per game and letting opponents shoot 45.5 percent from the field. 

Forward Timmy Allen is the star of Utah averaging 17.7 points while shooting 44.6 percent from the field. Rylan Jones is the the team’s third leading scorer, but he is expected to miss this game as he deals with concussion-like symptoms. 

The under is 15-5 in Colorado’s last 20 games played on Saturday. The under is 9-1 in the last ten meetings between Utah and Colorado in Utah. Colorado is 1-7 against the spread in their last eight meetings in Utah. The under is 20-7 in Colorado’s last 27 road games. 

Colorado has struggled the last few years in Utah and it’s going to happen again in this game. Look for Colorado’s offense to struggle and that will lead to a cover of the spread by the Utes.
