Ducks vs Beavers: Oregon Betting Odds
The Oregon Ducks flew through their first seven games this season, once again creating hopes of a Pac-12 championship and possibly a BCS title game berth.
But the Ducks have hit some serious turbulence, losing two of their last three games, falling out of contention for championships of any kind.
Coming off a drubbing in Arizona the Ducks will try to regroup for the Civil War, their annual battle with the Beavers of Oregon State, Friday night in Eugene.
Oregon started 7-0 this year, and 6-1 ATS; the Ducks are 0-3 ATS this last three games.
Oregon State also started very well this season, winning its first six games, going 4-2 ATS; however, the Beavers have lost their last four games in a row, and just gave up 69 points in losing at home to Washington.
Oregon State is 1-8 SU in its last 9 games at Oregon while the OVER has prevailed 10 of the last 11 times these Oregon rivals have met.
They will face the 6-5 Beavers, who own a 5-6 ATS mark on the season. In totals betting, the Ducks are 6-5 favoring the UNDER so far this season while the Beavers are 6-5 favoring the OVER.
The power rankings show a disparity between these teams, with the Ducks rated this week at No. 5 and the Beavers sitting at No. 47. It may or may not play a role in OddsShark score prediction models that turned out a 46-24 result in favor of the Ducks this week.
