Colorado is 19-8 in their last 27 road games and 19-7 in their last 26 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 6-1 in their last 7 games overall. Arizona is 17-41 in their last 58 games played on no rest and 7-3 in their last 10 games as a home underdog while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 Saturday games. The favorite is 8-1 in the last 9 meetings between these two teams.

I’ve gone back and forth on this game as I could genuinely see it going either way in the rematch on such a quick turnaround, but for a more comfortable pick, I’ll side with the under. Both teams were slow to really get going on Friday and I just see another situation where we don’t have a high-scoring output here. Give me the over in this one.
