The Oregon Ducks are coming off of a win at Colorado last weekend. Oregon’s offense is averaging 42.2 points per game with 527.8 yards per game. The Oregon offense has been using three different quarterbacks this year. Oregon quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. has been injured and is questionable for this week. Adams Jr. has had 581 yards, 4 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions for the Ducks. Oregon’s two quarterback system last game involved Jeff Lockie who has 421 yards with 3 touchdowns and 3 interceptions, as well as Taylor Alie who has 96 yards with 1 touchdown. These two quarterbacks were both used for about half of the game and it will be interesting to see who gets the start for Oregon this week. The Oregon rushing attack is led by Royce Freeman who has 613 yards and 7 touchdowns. The leading receiver for Oregon is Bralon Addison who has 225 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Oregon defense has allowed 37.4 points per game with 441.4 yards per game. Oregon’s defense has 10 sacks, 4 fumble recoveries, and 6 interceptions. Oregon’s defense continues to let them down and they will have to get better if they want to compete in the Pac-12 this year.

Washington State is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 October games. WSU is 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Washington State’s last 5 games. Oregon is 9-1 ATS in their last 10 Pac-12 games. Oregon is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games. The under is 4-1 in Oregon’s last 5 conference games.
Oregon seems to be having issues figuring out who to play at quarterback and what to do defense but I still like Oregon to come out and win this game pretty easy. It will most likely be a shootout because neither defense is that good but I have to side with Oregon to win this one.
