College Football Betting Preview: Colorado Buffaloes vs. Stanford Cardinal
October 13, 2023
A pair of Pac-12 teams will square off on ESPN at 10:00 PM on Friday night when the Stanford Cardinal travel to Boulder, Colorado to square off against the Colorado Buffaloes at Folsom Field.
The Stanford Cardinal enter this game with a record of 1-4 following a 6-42 loss at home against the Oregon Ducks while failing to cover the 27-point spread as a home underdog in week 5 of the college football season. Stanford scored 6 points while compiling a total of 222 yards offensively which included 133 passing yards and 89 rushing yards while allowing 42 points and 506 total yards defensively which included 298 passing yards and 208 rushing yards. Justin Lamson led the team in passing, completing 11 of 20 attempts for 106 yards while also leading the team in rushing with 22 carries for 32 yards. Mudia Reuben led the team in receiving, catching four of six targets for 40 yards.
Colorado enters this game with a record of 4-2 following a 27-24 win on the road against the Arizona State Sun Devils while the game ended in a push in week 6 of the college football season. The Buffaloes scored 27 points while compiling a total of 295 yards offensively which included 239 passing yards and 56 rushing yards while allowing 24 points and 408 total yards defensively which included 335 passing yards and 73 rushing yards. Shedeur Sanders led the team in passing, completing 26 of 42 attempts for 239 yards and a touchdown while adding a rushing touchdown. Anthony Hankerson led the team in rushing with 10 carries for 58 yards while adding four receptions for 23 yards. Javon Antonio led the team in receiving, catching all five targets for 81 yards and a touchdown.
BookMaker has the Colorado Buffaloes listed as 11.5-point favorites at home against the Stanford Cardinal on Friday night in week 7 of the college football season. The teams have split the six games all-time in the series while Colorado has won the last three matchups and has gone 3-0 ATS in those contests. Stanford is 2-3 ATS overall, 1-1 ATS on the road, 1-2 ATS as an underdog, and 1-2 ATS in conference games this season while the Colorado Buffaloes are 3-2-1 ATS overall, 2-1 ATS at home, 1-1-1 ATS as a favorite, and 1-1-1 ATS in conference games on the year.
Colorado is a vastly improved team since last season and they have already surpassed their win total from a year ago. The Buffaloes have won the last three games in the series and with the Cardinal struggling and having one of their worst seasons in recent memory I look for Colorado to not only win the game but to cover the spread, something they have accomplished in the previous three contests, in this matchup on Friday which is why I will be buying the .5 point and laying the 11 points with the Buffaloes at home against the Stanford Cardinal for this game on Friday night.
Spooky Express Pick: Colorado Buffaloes -11
