Colorado at Stanford odds, lines, picks and predictions


Colorado 69, Stanford 67

Money line

COLORADO (+125) is a solid play as a short ‘dog on the road at Maples. Stanford (-155) is a moderate favorite on its home court, but the Cardinal have really struggled in front of the home fans. Colorado is a much better team overall, and it will show that Saturday night.

Against the spread

Play COLORADO +2.5 (-110) if you do not trust them to get the job done straight up. However, it will be a very close game. While the Buffaloes are just 1-6 ATS in the past seven tries against winning teams, Stanford -2.5 (-110) is a dismal 2-5 ATS in the previous seven at home. The better play is just taking the Buffs on the ML, however.


The OVER 134.5 (-112) is the lean here, cashing in each of the previous four outings for Colorado. The Over is also 3-1-1 in its past five against winning teams. For Stanford, the Over is an impressive 7-2 in the previous nine outings against teams as a favorite and 19-7 in the previous 26 as a home favorite, too.
