The Colorado Buffaloes welcome the Oregon Ducks to Boulder for the first Pac-12 game between the two schools. The Buff appear to be in for a long day.
The Colorado Buffaloes return home to Folsom Field in Boulder after a two-game road trip through Stanford and Washington only to be met with the No. 10 Oregon Ducks as their next opponent. The odds makers don't have much faith in the Buffaloes, which makes sense since they are 1-6 and on a four-game losing streak.
According to Odds Shark, the Ducks opened as 32-1/2 point favorites on the road. It moved to a straight 31 points on a later line, but that matters little in the grand scheme of this game. It sounds defeatist, but there's almost no chance for the Buffs to pull off the upset in this one.
The Ducks average 48.7 points this season while the fewest points the Buffs have allowed in their six losses has been 31. The over/under started at 67-1/2 points, but it might be hard for the game to pull that off if the Buffaloes can't find a rhythm on offense.
