Buffaloes Look to Extend Fast Start in Week 4 Date with Huskies

A pair of undefeated Pac-12 rivals clash on Saturday night, when the Colorado Buffaloes take on the Washington Huskies in a Week 4 matchup at Folsom Field. Colorado improved to 3-0 SU with last weekend’s 41-21 win over Northern Colorado while the Huskies also remain undefeated following a 48-16 victory over Fresno State as 35-point home chalk.

Shark Bites
  • Colorado is 6-2 ATS in its last eight games in Week 4.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of Washington’s last seven games on the road.
  • Washington is 1-4 ATS in its last five games on the road in September.

Colorado’s win over the Bears gives them three SU wins to start the season for the first time since 2008. However, the Buffaloes have struggled to pay out at the sportsbooks, going 1-5 ATS in their past six overall, and 1-4 ATS in their past five on home turf. Colorado has also lost 12 straight as a double-digit home underdog. However, two of their past three have been settled by just three points.

The Huskies have won seven straight on the road during the regular season. Washington has also been a betting disappointment, covering in only four of nine road dates, and just once in its past six overall.

The Huskies have been dismal betting performers as double-digit road chalk, going 4-8 ATS in 12 dates since 2001, with six of those contests settled by seven or fewer points. Washington has fared far better in recent dates with the Buffaloes, winning SU and ATS in seven straight, and claiming victory by an average margin of 24.4 points.
