Betting Preview: Oregon Ducks vs Washington Huskies

The Washington offense could do no wrong in a 24-point rout in Arizona last week – but the degree of difficulty skyrockets Saturday as the Huskies host an Oregon Ducks team that has held opponents to single-digit scoring in five consecutive games. The Ducks boast the nation’s No. 3 scoring defense.

Opening Odds Analysis

Washington opened as a 2.5-point home underdog in a meeting between the top two teams in the Pac-12 North. It’s the first time the Huskies have been a home underdog vs Oregon since 2013; they’re 0-4 SU and ATS all-time as a home dog in the series.

Oregon News & Notes

It was one thing to see the Ducks hold Nevada and Montana to just nine combined points in their first two games following a 27-24 loss at Auburn. It was something altogether different for Oregon to enter Pac-12 play and slam the door on a trio of opposing offenses, limiting Stanford, California and Colorado to just 16 points en route to three straight double-digit victories.

As you might expect, this incredible run of defensive play has made Oregon a strong UNDER play, with the Ducks having cashed four straight times. And in addition to having gone UNDER in eight of their previous nine games overall, the Ducks are a red-hot 12-3-1 to the UNDER in their past 16 true road games.

Washington News & Notes

The Huskies finish up a brutal five-game stretch this weekend, having played three of their first four games in that span on the road while hosting nationally ranked USC in the other. And Washington has looked great, having gone 3-1 SU and ATS in those contests, capped by a 51-27 trouncing of the visiting Buffaloes last weekend.

And it hasn’t just been the offense driving this team up the Top 25 rankings; the defense has been just as sensational, producing 13 turnovers (five fumble recoveries, eight interceptions). But that ball-hawking prowess will be put to the test against a Ducks unit that has turned the ball over just five times all season (four lost fumbles, one interception).

Betting Pick: Oregon ATS

The Ducks have been one of the country’s elite on defense for the majority of the season, and quarterback Justin Herbert should do enough on offense to lead Oregon to a comfortable cover here.

Shark Bites
  • Oregon is 3-7 ATS in its last 10 games on the road.
