Oregon vs Colorado Preview & Odds
NCAA Basketball Betting- Ducks, Buffaloes Get Ready For Pac-12 Clash
The Pac-12 may seem like a BetOnline scam as it is one of the closest conferences in the country in terms of contending teams, and two of the teams in the hunt to take the title will meet on Saturday night in Boulder, where Colorado hosts Oregon as both are trying to keep up with California and Washington.
Oregon Colorado Odds – Saturday, 9:00 PM ET
The Ducks (15-6, 6-3 Pac-12 before Thursday’s trip to Utah) couldn’t stop rival Oregon State in the second half of a 76-71 loss at home, and a sportsbook review of the game would show that Oregon was outscored 53-43 after halftime. Devoe Joseph poured in 26 points with seven rebounds, while E.J. Singler added 16 points for the Ducks, who outrebounded the Beavers 40-29, but those following Super Bowl odds will tell you that turnovers can play a massive role in any sports; Oregon turned the ball over 23 times against the Beavers and that is an easy way to a quick loss. The Ducks will have to rebound against a Utah team that is 2-7 in Pac-12 play on Thursday, and they should come out with some fire.
The Buffaloes (14-7, 6-3 Pac-12 before Thursday’s visit from Oregon State) were thumped 77-60 at UCLA before their late-week game, and they couldn’t do anything to slow down the Bruins, who shot 59.6% from the floor. Askia Booker came off the bench with 13 points, while Andre Roberson was next with 12 points and 10 boards for the Buffaloes, who were also 7-of-14 from the free-throw line; experienced players that use pay per head sportsbook services know that teams can shoot themselves out of a game at the line and the Buffaloes could have used a few of those free throws to go in as they could have changed the momentum of the game. Of course, defense would have also helped against the red-hot Bruins.
Colorado should be the home favorites in this Pac-12 contest, and these two have met just once as the Buffaloes just moved to the conference from the Big 12 before this season began. The Ducks defeated the Buffaloes 77-72 in the 2004 NCAA Tournament and Colorado would love to get some revenge for their program. Where they can win this game is on the boards as they’re 58th in the country in rebounds per game, while Oregon is only 207th. The Ducks have better pure scorers in Joseph and Singler and the Buffaloes won’t want to get into a shootout with Oregon, so they’ll need to slow down the pace, get good shots and control boards. Take Colorado on Saturday in your NCAA basketball betting picks.
