Oregon vs Colorado College Basketball Betting Preview
The Oregon Ducks come into this game Thursday night having won against Oregon State at home Saturday night. Although this isn’t the familiar Oregon teams of years past, they still have a chance to make the tournament with winning games like they should, including this one. Jacob Young, their best player arguably, will look to have a better outing vs Colorado than last time on January 25th, only scoring 11 on 5-15 from the field (33.3%). They also forced him to make a lot of tough passes tightly contested resulting in 6 of their 11 turnovers. This game can go either way for the Ducks and should be capable of taking this game over late.
The Colorado Buffaloes come into this game coming off a devastating loss at the Friel Court, against the Washington State Cougars, losing by 27 points Sunday night. Jabari Walker had an awful night, which he led the team in scoring at 11 points, while no other player touched double figures. The team as a whole shot 28.6% from the field, 33.3% from 3-point range, and shot 71.4% from the line. They got outhustled, outrebounded, and outclassed in every aspect of that game, it was an utter mess. They look to rebound literally and figuratively, as they look to win a much-needed conference matchup against the Ducks.

Oregon vs Colorado Prediction | College Basketball Betting Picks
Last time these teams matched up, Colorado got the best of them by four points in Oregon at the Matthew Knight Arena. Colorado had better depth, shooting, defense, rebounding, limiting second-chance opportunities, and just a better team effort overall. I will say, though, Oregon did be more careful with the basketball, having a great sense of ball security, with also forcing Colorado to turn the ball over ten times. This one should go down to the wire again, but this time I fully believe Oregon gets the job done. Tune into FS1 to see it for yourself at 10 PM ET.
