    Arizona opens as a double-digit favorite
    Perhaps Colorado truly has found bottom.
    After five games against very good competition, five games in which the Buffs left little reason to watch the second half of play, Colorado and its fans were looking forward to playing a team with a losing record for the first time in the 2011 season.
    However, according to the oddsmakers, its more of the same ol’, same ol’.
    Forget the fact that Arizona is only 2-7. Forget the fact that the Wildcats haven’t won away from home in over a year. Forget the fact that, against 1-A competition (excluding a season-opening win over Northern Arizona from the Big Sky Conference), Arizona has lost 12 of its last 13 games, dating back to a five-game losing streak to end the 2010 season.
    Colorado is still worse. A lot worse.
    Arizona is listed as an 11-point favorite over Colorado on the road this weekend.
    Look no further than the fact that Arizona* is 4th in the nation in pass offense, while Colorado is 97th in the nation in pass defense.
    Colorado will get back defensive backs Parker Orms and Paul Vigo from suspension this week, and perhaps another defensive back or two (Ray Polk? Kyle Washington?) back from injury. Perhaps having a full complement of*recruited defensive backs will slow down the Arizona offense.
    Until that is demonstrated, though, on the field, Las Vegas – and the rest of the college football world – will remain skeptical.
