Colorado State will put its perfect 6-0 record on the line Wednesday night, coming off a 79-72 victory over Evansville as 9.5-point home favorites. The Rams have gotten off to a great start under first-year head coach Larry Eustachy, averaging 77.0 points per game, while allowing just 60.7 points per contest. The team is also out-rebounding its opponents by 17.3 boards per game. Colorado State is 5-2 ATS in its last seven road games, while the OVER is 5-1 in its last six opportunities in that situation.
The Rams are receiving votes in both the AP and ESPN/USA Today Top 25 rankings, as they look to win their third game away from Fort Collins, picking up road victories over Denver and Washington earlier this year. Colorado State has captured two of the last three meetings in this in-state rivalry, but is 1-15 when playing in Boulder since the teams began playing again on an annual basis in 1979-80.
Colorado will look to bounce back from a 76-69 loss to the Wyoming Cowboys as two-point road underdogs, as it has four probable starters averaging in double figures, with sophomore guard Askia Booker leading the way in scoring 15.3 points per game. The Buffaloes have gone 2-0 under third-year head coach Tad Boyle when returning home following a non-conference loss on the road. Colorado is 8-2 ATS in its last 10 games versus winning opposition, which must be considered when looking at the college basketball odds page.
The Buffaloes are 11-2 in their last 13 games dating back to the Pac-12 Tournament, while they’ve gone 11-3 in the month of December under Boyle’s direction. Colorado is getting a tremendous contribution from junior forward Andre Roberson, who has recorded three straight double-doubles, while the team has won 22 of 28 games when he’s able to reach those numbers in points and rebounds. The program has gone 35-4 at the Coors Events Center in its last 39 games inside the venue.
Sports bettors will likely back the Rams due to their 10-4 ATS mark in their last 14 games, while the Buffaloes are 2-5 ATS on Wednesday.
