If The Buffs Score In The Second Half, You (Could) Win

Written By Ian St. Clair on 12/11/2020 - Last Updated on March 21, 2024

The University of Colorado football team is on a mission.

The Buffaloes are stampeding the college football world with their 4-0 start. On Saturday, they’ll look to keep that unbeaten record intact when they host the University of Utah (1-2) at 10 a.m. MST at Folsom Field.

On top of that, if CU is able to win, the hopes of an appearance in the Pac-12 title game remain alive. Yes, the Buffs will need some help from UCLA, but the point remains.

As a way to make Saturday’s game even bigger, the top FOX college football broadcasting team of Gus Johnson and former CU quarterback Joel Klatt will call the game.

In terms of college football betting, all of this gets even better.

Double Your Money offer

FOX Bet and FOX Sports, in perhaps a first of its kind for the partnership, will offer an exclusive to customers: Double Your Money — Colorado Buffaloes to score a point in the second half. The max bet is $10.

The offer is now live and will remain so until the start of the second half.

Wait, it gets even better.

The last part will test how many viewers in the Colorado sports betting market may jump on that offer, based on how the Buffs do in the first half.

In addition to the Double Your Money offer, FOX Bet is also running its Super 6 contest for Saturday’s game. This is part of the FOX Sports’ Big Noon Kickoff that replaced the Michigan and Ohio State game.

The Super 6 contest is free to play and available nationwide (save for Washington state).

The contest includes six questions about Saturday’s game between CU and the Utes.

Buffs look to remain unbeaten

As for the game itself, this has a similar feel to the University of Arizona game on Dec. 5. After a sluggish start, Colorado took control and won 24-13.

Yes, Utah is better than the Wildcats, but the Utes aren’t as good as they have been.

That’s not to say this is a trap game, but the potential for the Buffaloes to let up a bit is there.

But if you’ve been following this team and how it’s beaten the steep odds to get here, there’s little chance of that on Saturday.

As first-year Colorado coach Karl Dorrell told the media on Thursday:

“I have high expectations of this team and I hold them to it. That’s my coaching style. That’s what I’ve done for most of my career.”

If the Buffs take care of business in the Rumble in the Rockies, and you take part in this FOX Bet offer, that’s a double win.
