Washington is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games as an underdog. The over is 14-4 in Washington’s last 18 road games. Colorado is 3-9-2 ATS in their last 14 games and 1-6-2 ATS in their last 9 home games. The under is 5-1 in Colorado’s last 6 games. The home team is 5-0 ATS in these two teams last 5 meetings.

An interesting trend in this series is that the home team has covered in the last five games. Colorado has looked good this season and has won four straight, while Washington has struggled a little more. The difference here is that Colorado defends their basket much better than Washington does. This should lead to open looks on the offensive end for the Buffaloes. Colorado also rebounds better and shoots better than the Huskies. Give me Colorado.
