Free Betting Pick: Colorado State Rams +23
We think head coach Deion Sanders and the Buffaloes will outclass the Rams in this matchup. But we think 23 points is a tall order for any team. We think the Rams get a late garbage time score to get the backdoor cover. Our best bet is CSU +23. Final score prediction, the Colorado Buffaloes win, Colorado State covers the spread and the total goes over 40-24.
