The Ducks are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings in Washington and 10-0-1 ATS in their last 11 meetings overall.
The Oregon Ducks are simply not a good football team right now, as their defense can’t get off the field and their quarterback play is horrible to put it nicely. Meanwhile, Washington has proven its starting to turn the corner, is well coached, at home and has the best defense in the Pac-12. The Oregon Ducks aren’t going to be the oregon Ducks we’re used to seeing until they find a consistent quarterback.
Washington rolls here.
