Colorado Buffaloes | Pac-12 (South)

Overview

Conference Analysis
Win Division (+1000), Win Conference (+8000)
SSA Model Pick: None
The Buffaloes made it to the Pac-12 title game in ’16 and are looking to get there again this season. However, Colorado doesn’t have the players that other schools have and will have to manufacture wins in the Pac-12. They are inexperienced and making it to the Pac-12 title game this season will be difficult.

Win Total Analysis
4.5 wins (-110/-110)
SSA Model Pick: Over (High Confidence)
The Buffs went 5-7 last season and will have an inexperienced team this year. Those two reasons are why this line is set at 4.5, but this number is wrong. Colorado should be 2-1 entering conference play and with home games against UCLA, Arizona State, Oregon State, and Washington State, the Buffaloes should be able to find three additional wins.
