Washington State vs. Colorado prediction and pick

Colorado sports one of the best defenses in the country, but some a betting standpoint, I think we should wager on this being a bit of an offensive shootout. The main reason being that both offenses matchup well stylistically with the opposing defense.

For example, 55.9% of Colorado’s points come from two-point range, the 56th highest percentage in the country. Now, they get to take on a Washington State defense that has a weak interior. 58.9% of the points scored against them come from down low, which ranks 352nd in college basketball.

The opposite is true on the other end of the court. 38.4% of points scored by Washington State comes from three-point range, and Colorado’s defensive weakness is the perimeter. They allow teams to shoot 32.8% from beyond the arc.

Let’s also remember that Colorado plays at a fast pace, ranking 48th in possessions per game.

Let’s sit back and root for points in this Pac 12 showdown.
