Colorado Buffaloes Open As Three Touchdown Underdogs At Home Against Washington

Steven Bisig-US PRESSWIRE

The Buffaloes face another large hurdle as they face the four-loss Huskies in Boulder.

The Colorado Buffaloes face another large point-spread this week as they opened up as three touchdown underdogs at home against the 6-4 Washington Huskies. This game marks the seventh straight that the Buffaloes have been 20+ point underdogs, they were 14.5-point underdogs in the sole win on the road against Washington State, but is the lowest in two months.

The Washington Huskies are currently on a small roll after winning four-straight, including wins over undefeated Oregon State and on the road against California. Last week, the Huskies took care of Utah at CenturyLink Field. After a slow start in the first quarter, the Huskies took the lead on a 4-yard touchdown run from quarterback Keith Price and never looked back in a 34-15 win. They have now reached bowl eligibility and can turn in a pretty darn good season after a 3-4 start with only Colorado and Washington State left (both on the road) on the slate.

The somewhat smaller spread (Stanford was +27.5 and ASU was +22.5) is most likely somewhat due to the improvement seen from the Buffaloes offense with Nick Hirschman at the helm, but the junior quarterback had to leave the game against Arizona with a head injury and his status against the Huskies is somewhat up in the air. Washington's defense is a step up from Arizona's and their offense should be able to find success against a flailing Buffs defense.

Interestingly enough, the line has already come down a point to +20 at two of the few books that have already posted their numbers.
