The Colorado Buffaloes had a week off to get healthy and rested up a bit and now head to Los Angeles as big underdogs to the USC Trojans. While they are just 2-3 overall, the Buffaloes have actually covered the spread in four straight games (although the Oregon State line did dip down as low as 4.5 in some places directly leading up to kickoff), three of which were against Pac-12 competition. The Buffs are clearly better than Las Vegas thinks they may be at this point and it will be interesting to see if the numbers start catching up to the improvement.
The Buffaloes are 19.5-point underdogs this Saturday after the line opened at 20. Just over half of the money is currently on the Buffaloes but after the number was intitially released over 75% leaned towards Colorado.
The Trojans are coming off of a huge last second win over Arizona in Tucson after being helped by a missed field goal at the end of the game. They currently sit at 4-2 with surprising losses to Boston College and Arizona State (via a last second Hail Mary) and impressive wins against the Wildcats and Cardinal.
