Stanford is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 conference games. The under is 4-0 in Stanford’s last 4 games. Oregon is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 1-9-1 ATS in their last 1 games overall. The over is 8-1 in Oregon’s last 9 conference games. The over is 9-2 in these two teams last 11 meetings.
Oregon continued its poor season with a blowout loss in their last game, while Stanford has won 3 of their last 4 games. The Oregon defense continues to be terrible and is one of the worst units in the country. Stanford’s offense hasn’t been great, but should enjoy plenty of success in this game. Stanford has been using their defense to find success this season and will need it against a powerful Oregon offense. I haven’t been impressed by either of these teams, but I like Oregon at home against a below average Stanford offense.
