Important to remember that the above consensus numbers are an early snapshot of public action. The Professional Handicappers League has a few professional consensus services for those looking for a consensus of expert sports picks.

The Arizona Wildcats is a team we have a pretty strong read on and have had a lot of success betting or against. We have placed 16 documented premium wagers on Wildcats games in the last decade, winning 13, next to just 3 for a winning rate of 81.30% and profits of $9810.00. We do not have a premium selection in this game today, but we do have a strong opinion.

Some of the factors we look at are the total points being scored by both teams, which is 153.8. Together, the teams average 144.2 points allowed, which gives us expected total points of 149, which can be compared against the over/under offered by oddsmakers for those inclined to bet on totals.

To determine the game-winner and to consider the spread in a game we can look at point differential as well, but it is wise to weigh the power rating differential even more. In this game, which is considered "neutral", the power rating on the Arizona Wildcats is 86.0 while the Colorado Golden Buffaloes bring a rating of 76.5, meaning, a reasonable line on this game for Arizona is -9.5.

Taking everything into consideration we do have a free pick opinion on this game.
