The Ducks are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games in November and 35-17 ATS in their last 52 road games. The Cardinal are 6-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 37-16 ATS in their last 53 home games. The Ducks are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 meetings.
I like this Oregon Ducks team with Adams at quarterback, as he's the difference maker the offense was looking for. While I usually side with the more physical team against Oregon, I think there's value with 10 free points and Oregon. The Ducks are showing signs of returning to the team we've seen in the past.
