2020 Colorado Buffaloes Football Betting Predictions

 

Colorado Buffaloes Betting Odds & Forecast

2020 Colorado Win Total Odds

Colorado 2020 wins: Over 3 (-135) or Under 3 (+110)

Based on the 2020 Win Totals Odds projections for the Buffaloes, those five wins that saw three come by a field goal last year might be more a stroke of good luck then Colorado fans want to figure. A win total of a flat '3' makes going 'bowling' more of a pipe dream for Colorado this year, as things aren't easy for them at all in what appears to be a rebuilding year.

2020 Colorado Buffaloes Schedule

  • Week 1 - Sept. 5 at Colorado State
  • Week 2 - Sept. 12 vs. Fresno State
  • Week 3 - Sept. 19 at Texas A&M
  • Week 4 - Sept. 26 vs. Oregon
  • Week 6 - Oct. 9 at Arizona
  • Week 7 - Oct. 17 vs. UCLA
  • Week 8 - Oct. 24 vs. Arizona State
  • Week 9 - Oct. 31 at USC
  • Week 10 - Nov. 7 vs. Washington State
  • Week 11 - Nov. 14 at Stanford
  • Week 12 - Nov. 21 at Washington
  • Week 13 - Nov. 28 vs. Utah

Non-conference games against Colorado State, Fresno State, and Texas A&M to open up the year could have Colorado winless going into their Pac-12 schedule that begins with Oregon the following week. Three of Colorado's final five games are on the road, and the two home games vs Washington State and Utah will have Colorado as decent home 'dogs. It was likely a good move for WR Laviska Shenault to move onto the NFL this year, because Colorado's season at the collegiate level looks bleak.

2020 Colorado Game of the Year Odds

  • Week 6 - Colorado +5.5 at Arizona

The only game on Colorado's schedule that oddsmakers deem worthy of posting in Game of the Year Odds on is their road date with Arizona in early October. The Buffaloes are listed as +5.5 road underdogs for that game, but it's tough to figure you won't get a better number here closer to kick-off.

Yes, that game is off a bye week for Colorado, but it comes after likely blowout losses to Texas A&M and Oregon in the two weeks prior. Looking at the possibility of being winless overall here as well, until we all have a better idea of exactly what Colorado brings to the field this year, the number is likely only to grow. If anything, bet this game now if you are high on Arizona's 2020 outlook.

Colorado Odds to win Pac-12 South in 2020

Yes (+2500)

Not much needs to be said here for the biggest longshot in the division by far, and one who's only expected to win 3-4 games overall. Sure, Colorado could outperform every expectation and be in the conversation late, but that would be the ultimate best case scenario for them.

Colorado Odds to win Pac-12 Championship

Yes (+10000)

If there is no need to consider them for a division crown, there is definitely no need to consider the Buffaloes here. A long shot ticket that's a great story if it hits, but it's mostly going to be something that unnecessarily nicks up the bankroll.

Colorado Odds to Win 2020-21 College Football Playoff

Yes (+40000)

Interesting enough, Colorado is listed as having better odds then Oregon State (+50000) when the Beavers are +8000 compared to Colorado's +10000 odds to win the conference. That's the only thing worth talking about with this wager, as neither the Buffaloes or the Beavers are going to come close to achieving this in 2020.

Colorado Buffaloes – Postseason Forecast

The 2020 season begins with a bit of a dark forecast for Colorado's campaign and whether or not they'll even have a chance to get to a postseason. This is a school still trying to find any level of success again that then find for the even harder answer in how to sustain it. Colorado's only one more then six games one time since the start of the 2008 season, as three straight seasons of 5-7 SU has been their most consistent stretch in there.

Colorado fans would love to see their team in any Bowl game this year, but they'll likely need plenty to go right for them to see even that happen.

Colorado Buffaloes - Season Prediction

A four or five win year seems about right for Colorado's 2020 prospects, as I'm not sure a heavily juiced line of '3' on their win total gives the Buffaloes the complete respect they deserve. But wins are going to be extremely hard to come by, and if one victory doesn't come by mid-October, who knows if this younger Buffaloes team decides to fold up shop for the rest of the year.

Any futures wager regarding them winning the division, conference or further is far too off the radar for serious acknowledgement, and even the win total feels a lot like you've got to be on the right side of a few coin flip Colorado games to win on either side of that number.

Easy enough to pass all the way around on Colorado futures, but if this is the level of respect they get from the markets all season, there might be a few contests where Colorado is just getting too many points to pass up in a good situational spot. Keep that in mind going through the year.

Buffaloes 2019 Betting Recap

A 2019 campaign that started out so promisingly with wins over then-ranked Nebraska and Arizona State, Colorado finished 2019 with a 5-7 straight up (SU) record and failed to go to a Bowl game. Considering four of their five wins came by a single score, three of which by just a FG, 5-7 SU may be considered the best the Buffaloes could have done with what they had too.
