5* PAC-12 BLOCKBUSTER BOOKIE BEATDOWN
Oregon State vs. Colorado,
02/02/2012 21:00 EDT,
Score: 60 - 82
Point Spread: -2½/-110 Colorado
The Buffaloes come into this game with an impressive 11-1 record on their home floor, and I will gladly lay just 2.5-points against an Oregon State team that is known for its struggles on the road. The Beavers did snap a 13-game conference losing streak by winning at Oregon on Sunday, but that only adds even more value to this play. Colorado is a perfect 5-0 at home in conference play, which includes a couple of solid wins over Washington and Arizona.
While this is the first season for Colorado in the PAC-12, they did play a non-conference home game against Oregon State last year. Not only did the Buffaloes win that game, they demolished the Beavers 83-57. Colorado is a very difficult place to play, and I will play the odds that a team as bad as Oregon State is away from home, won't win back-to-back road games.
In the Buffaloes last game they got crushed at UCLA by 17-points as a 9-point underdog. No reason to be concerned. Colorado is 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS loss and are a perfect 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games vs. a team with a losing road record. BET THE BUFFALOES!
