After failing to cover in a conference game for the first time this season against USC the Buffaloes once again covered in a heartbreaking two overtime loss to UCLA. This Saturday is likely the best remaining chance for Colorado to get in the win column when the Washington Huskies come to town. The Huskies sport a great defense but their offense hasn't lived up to expectations so far this year.
Vegas agrees that the Buffs have a chance in this one, installing Colorado as 4-point underdogs with the initial line release. That number has since moved up to five points midway through the day Monday. The Huskies are coming off two straight losses where the offense has failed to score more than twenty points. Earlier this season they were able to handle Cal on the road, 31-7.
