Oregon Heavily Favored Against Hapless Arizona

CJ Verdell's (right) Ducks are favored in the Arizona vs Oregon odds.

The No. 3 Oregon Ducks (3-0 SU, 1-2 ATS) are 14-0 SU and 6-8 ATS in their last 14 games at home. The Ducks have a huge spread to cover Saturday night when they host the Arizona Wildcats (0-3 SU, 1-2 ATS) at Autzen Stadium.

Opening Odds Analysis

The Ducks opened as 27.5-point favorites in this Pac-12 matchup and have been bet up slightly to Oregon -28. The total has moved down half a point to 58.5 since opening at 59 points. Oregon is 5-1 SU in its last six home games against the Wildcats.

Arizona News & Notes

Arizona had a golden opportunity to snap the nation’s longest active losing streak last Saturday as 26.5-point favorites at home against the NAU Lumberjacks. But in what was scheduled to be a tune-up game against an FCS opponent, the Wildcats managed to blow a 13-0 lead and lose outright by a final score of 21-19.

With the loss, the Wildcats dropped to 0-15 SU and 3-12 ATS over their last 15 games. Arizona is 0-12 against Pac-12 opponents during this stretch with an average margin of defeat of 21.4 points per game.

New head coach Jedd Fisch can’t be blamed for the mess he has inherited, but getting blown out 38-14 as a 1.5-point favorite at home against the San Diego State Aztecs and following that up with the loss to NAU isn’t the most impressive start to his tenure.

Oregon News & Notes

The Ducks catapulted themselves into College Football Playoff contention with their 35-28 road win over the Ohio State Buckeyes in Week 2. Last week, Oregon won handily but failed to cover the 42-point spread in a 48-7 win over the Stony Brook Seawolves. After getting through the non-conference section of their schedule with a 3-0 record, the Ducks now turn their attention to the Pac-12.

Oregon is 15-3 SU and 10-8 ATS in its last 18 games against conference opponents. The Ducks are 3-0 SU and ATS in their last three home games against the Wildcats, winning those games by an average of 28.7 points. Beating this reeling Wildcats team outright should be trivial for the Ducks, but the 28-point spread looks to be set in the right place.

Staff Betting Pick: Arizona +28

Betting on a team as bad as Arizona is never fun. But with a dangerous road game scheduled against the Stanford Cardinal next Saturday, Oregon could get caught looking ahead in this game or decide to pull its starters out early. We’ll take the four touchdowns and hope for the best.
