Betting Odds courtesy of Bovada
Colorado is 9-0 at home this season and 11-2 overall, and it will host Oregon State in a game college basketball oddsmakers at Bovadad find the Buffaloes to be 12-point favorites in. The teams played three times last season with Colorado winning two of the three. Coach Tad Boyle said of the game “If we can’t get up for Oregon State, I don’t know for who we can…they beat us here…and really left a sour taste in our mouths.”
Oregon State is led by Roberto Nelson, who is posting 21.4 points per game this season. Beavers coach Craig Robinson said he’s been “terrific” and noted he was even more impressed since Nelson is drawing so much defensive attention this season.
For Colorado, Spencer Dinwiddle will also prove to instrumental, as he averaged 20.7 points against Oregon State last season. The Buffaloes lead all Pac-12 clubs in free throw attempts per game (30.2) and Dinwiddle averages 7.5 attempts per game. The team hit 26-of-26 from the line in its 84-70 win over Georgia Saturday.
Oregon State has Angus Brandt back in the lineup after he missed almost all of last season. Brandt had 21 points in the win on Sunday over Quinnipac. He’s a fifth year senior and brings a lot of experience, but the 6’10″ Brandt can also fill it up when the team needs him to. He averaged 9.1 points and 3.4 rebounds in 2011-12, his last full season of play.
