We came in yet again with a solid NBA winner with our best bet from Wednesday as the hard trying New Orleans Hornets covers the +5 ½ point spread against a bad defensive team in the Sacramento Kings. Like we said last night never lay heavy points with a team who won’t defend. The Kings allow over 47% shooting and that kept the Hornets in the game to the final buzzer. With our top pick from Thursday we select from the PAC 12 conference quarterfinal round as the Colorado Buffaloes the sixth seed will face the third seeded Oregon Ducks. The Buffaloes and Ducks are the late game on Thursday night at Staples Center with a tip off time of 11:30PM Eastern Time and you can watch this college basketball game over FSN. With our college basketball top betting prediction pick we will play on the Oregon Ducks -3 points against the Colorado Buffaloes.

If you think that the underdog Colorado Buffaloes can win this game straight up your reward is +150 odds for your money line wager.
This Oregon Ducks team are clearly on the bubble but has made a strong case for an at large bid with solid play down the stretch. The club has won four straight and six of their past seven games. Their only loss during that stretch came in a fierce effort in a three point loss at California. Oregon is well coached and has senior and junior leadership on this team. Devoe Joseph a senior has put up big numbers for the Ducks. You have to like the 33 points he produced in the teams three point loss at the Golden Bears. Senior Garrett Sim has averaged 19 points a game over his past three games. Junior E.J. Singler is a sharp shooter who has produced for Oregon over this three year career.
This Colorado team has a fraudulent record. In their first season in the PAC 12 conference they were able to defeat teams on their home court as the visiting clubs had difficulty in adjusting to playing at a high altitude. The biggest drop off for Colorado has been their play on the defensive end away from home as their opponents don’t fatigue late in games since they don’t have to deal with the high altitude. Oregon is making 50.7% of their shots over their past five games and will cover this number so bet the Ducks at the best sportsbooks.
