Washington shot 50% from the field and made 9 three pointers in the loss.

Colorado is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 neutral site games. The under is 5-1 in Colorado’s last 6 games. Washington is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 neutral site games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games. The over is 7-3 in Washington’s last 10 neutral site games. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings. 


Both of these teams come into this matchup with 8-12 records in the PAC-12, but Washington did win both regular season meetings by scores of 73-63 and 75-62. Washington has allowed 93 and 81 points in their last two games, while Colorado is coming off of a nice win against Utah. These two teams have very similar metrics, but Colorado is the better defensive team and they are averaging more rebounds per game. I like the Buffaloes here.
