Colorado Opens As 30.5 Point Underdogs Against Arizona, Even With Matt Scott Questionable

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

Coming off a 66-10 loss and your starting quarterback may not play? Don't worry, you're still 30.5 point favorites over the Buffs!

The point spread for this week's game at Arizona took longer than normal to be released to the public because of the uncertainly around all-everything Wildcat quarterback Matt Scott and the concussion he sustained against UCLA (and maybe against USC?). His status for the game against the Buffaloes is still unknown (in all likelihood he will not play Saturday) and his back-ups are extremely unproven.

All that being said, what would you guess the point spread will be for Saturday's game between the Buffs and Wildcats (just pretend you haven't read the headline)? If you guessed just under five touchdowns you are correct! The line for the game is now out and has opened with Colorado as 30.5 point underdogs. To a team without their leader and best player. A team that got blown out 66-10 to UCLA a week after beating USC.

Is it all that ridiculous? No, not really. The Buffaloes will have a new quarterback starting this week and they certainly haven't shown any hints that they may be turning this ship around any time soon. The Wildcats have plenty of playmakers on a very prolific offense that has been able to score on everyone but UCLA. Running back Ka'Deem Carey in particular has been exceptional in his sophomore season. Well, at least without Scott there is certainly a better chance.
