Oregon Puts Nation-High Home Streak On The Line

It has been a very long time since the Oregon Ducks have lost at home. Oregon has won 40 straight games at Matthew Knight Arena with the last home defeat coming on January 8, 2015. The Ducks are close to recording back-to-back seasons with a perfect home record and one of the few teams standing in their way is the Utah Utes on Thursday night.

Shark Bites
  • Utah is 0-6 ATS in its last 6 games against Oregon.
  • Oregon is 13-2 ATS in its last 15 games against the Pac-12.
  • Utah is 16-3-1 ATS in its last 20 games as an underdog of 9.5 or more.

Following Oregon’s loss to UCLA, coach Dana Altman decided to expand his bench and implemented a nine-man rotation instead of just seven. This paid dividends against USC, as the Ducks looked far better in the later stages of that game compared with the contest against UCLA. Dillon Brooks, who fouled out against the Trojans, has averaged 21.3 points in the past four while shooting 57.7 percent from deep.

Back-to-back wins over Washington State and Washington have kept Utah hanging around the Pac-12, but a win against Oregon is critical if the Utes want to make a late-season run. The Utes’ biggest strength is their scoring depth, with three players averaging over 13.0 ppg. Kyle Kuzma has been unstoppable this season, averaging a double-double, but he has been amazing lately with 17.6 ppg and 11.3 rpg in the past 11.
