There is one pick today.
Take Utah +2 spread (buy the half point) against Colorado for 3% of the bankroll.
The Utah Utes come into this matchup with quite a bit of momentum. They lost their most recent matchup, a road date with Arizona, by just a single point. Few expected the Utes to even be competitive in that contest, let alone almost steal a victory. Even though they lost, they showed a lot of heart in that game and proved to themselves that they can hang with the very best in the country. That will be a motivating factor tonight against a Colorado team that has struggled as of late. Prior to their loss against the Wildcats, Utah was on a 3-game winning streak and we expect them to pick up right where they left off and grab the victory tonight.
The Colorado Buffaloes come into this contest on a three-game losing streak. At just 12-10 on the season, they are going to need a lot of help to make the NCAA Tournament this season and we believe reality is starting to set in for the players. They have been inconsistent on the offensive side of the ball in recent games and that isn't going to bode well against a Utah team that is extremely well-balanced on both sides of the basketball. Their defense should be able to keep the Buffaloes in check tonight.
Utah is still in the running for a tournament berth, but they need to win games like this against sub-par competition. As long as they don't experience a hangover after their matchup with Arizona, the Utes are the better overall team, and while we do expect this to be a close game, Utah should make the necessary plays at the end to come away with a solid road win tonight. If they do happen to fall short of the outright win, it will likely be in the final possession, in which the points could prove to be valuable.
