In their first meeting this season Colorado pulled out the 64-63 home win against the Wildcats as a -2 point home favorite. The total came in at under the total of 131 ½ points. The Buffaloes played very good defense in the win limiting the Wildcats to just 34.5% shooting. Carlon Brown led Colorado with 19 points with six rebounds. Jesse Perry in a losing cause had 20 points and 10 rebounds.

After a bad road defeat at UCLA 77-60 in late January the Buffaloes returned home and defeated Oregon St by 22 points and squeaked out the 1 point win to Oregon. But a concern for Colorado Buffaloes backers has been their work on the road in PAC 12 play. In addition to their 17 point road loss to the Bruins they have a 20 point loss at Stanford and a loss by 7 at California. Their lone road win came at an offensively inept USC team by the score of 74-50 as a +1 ½ point underdog.

Arizona has won three of their past four games. Following a high profile 69-67 home defeat to the Washington Huskies the team went up to the Bay Area and earned a four point victory at California and on Saturday defeated the Stanford Cardinal 56-43 as a +4 point road underdog.

Both teams defend very well as Arizona allows 39.8% shooting and Colorado 40.7% on the year. The Wildcats are trending in this game as they have covered the spread in two straight against the Buffaloes. Arizona is 5-1 ATS in their past five games all against PAC 12 conference foes.
