The Cougars are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in October. The Ducks are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 conference games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games. The Cougars are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
The Ducks are playing little to no defense this season and have serious quarterback issues. That's bad news against a Washington State squad that throws the ball with the best of them. This line is simply this high due to Oregon's past success. Problem is Ducks are a shell of themselves at the moment. Not sure how you pass up this many point with the way Oregon has played so far.
