The Ducks lead the nation in averaging 89.2 points per game, which is important to consider when making your college basketball predictions.

The Ducks have had at least four players scored in double figures in nine of the last 10 games, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college basketball odds page. Oregon hasn’t played a ranked opponent this season, as it tries to win in Boulder for the first time in five tries. It’s important to point out that this team has one of the deepest rosters in the country, with head coach Dan Altman sending out two different starting lineups during the 2013-14 campaign.
Colorado has won back-to-back games, including a 64-58 victory over the Oregon State Beavers as 12-point home favorites last Thursday, while going UNDER the betting total of 147.
