The Oregon Ducks and the Oregon State Beavers face off on Sunday at McArthur Court in Pac-12 college basketball.
The Oregon Ducks have lost their last tow games and three of their last four as their season of big promise has faded. Oregon is 3-8 in the Pac-12 and 10-3 at home this season as they sit in 10th place in the conference standings. Joseph Young is averaging 18.4 points to lead the Ducks. Mike Moser is averaging 12.7 points and 7.3 rebounds, Jason Calliste is averaging 12.3 points, and Damyean Dotson is averaging 10.3 points. Oregon is averaging 83.3 points and they are shooting 46.5 percent while defensively they are allowing 75 points and their opponents are shooting 43.9 percent. Oregon almost cracked the top 10 at one point this season, now a spot in the NCAA Tournament looks like a reach.

Oregon is 3-9-1 against the spread in their last 13 games, 0-6 against the spread in their last six home games, and 2-7-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record. Oregon State is 4-1 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the spread and 13-6-2 against the spread following a loss. The underdog is 3-1-1 against the spread in the last five meetings of these two.
My free pick in this one will be on the total and if you like offense this is the one for you and my free pick is the over. My stronger pick is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
