The Washington Huskies are 14-7 this season and they have lost their last three games. UW is averaging 64.5 points and they are shooting 44.9 percent from the floor while defensively they are allowing 64.5 points and their opponents are shooting 38.3 percent.

Oregon is 2-6 against the spread in their last eight road games, 3-9 against the spread in their last 12 games, and 1-4 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread. Washington is 3-8 against the spread in their last 11 games, 1-6 against the spread following a loss, and 3-7 against the spread against a team with a winning record. The underdog has covered the point spread in seven of the last eight meetings of these two.
Oregon is coming off of one of their better games with Washington coming off of a big disappointment and I look for the Ducks to follow up with another win.
