Eastern Washington @ Colorado
Current Records: Eastern Washington 4-4; Colorado 6-3
What to Know
The Colorado Buffaloes will play host again and welcome the Eastern Washington Eagles to CU Events Center, where tip-off is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday. The Buffaloes earned a 76-68 win in their most recent matchup against Eastern Washington in December of 2016.
Colorado entered their game against the Tennessee Volunteers on Saturday without any home losses — but there’s a first time for everything. Colorado took a hard 69-54 fall against Tennessee. Guard Keeshawn Barthelemy had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with only four points on 2-for-13 shooting in his 30 minutes on the court.
Meanwhile, while not quite a landslide, the contest between Eastern Washington and the Nebraska Omaha Mavericks on Saturday was still a pretty decisive one as the Eagles wrapped it up with a 92-81 win on the road.
The Buffaloes are the favorite in this one, with an expected 16.5-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are only 1-5-1 against the spread when favored.
Eastern Washington’s victory lifted them to 4-4 while Colorado’s loss dropped them down to 6-3. We’ll see if Eastern Washington can repeat their recent success or if Colorado bounces back and reverse their fortune.
