The Oregon Ducks are officially reeling as they have lost four games in a row. Oregon looked like they were headed towards to top 10 but instead they headed into reverse and are no longer ranked. Joseph Young leads the Ducks averaging 18 points per game. Mike Moser is averaging 14.2 points and 7.8 rebounds and Jason Calliste and Damyean Dotson are both averaging 11.2 points per game. Oregon is averaging 87.4 points and they are shooting 48.4 percent while defensively they are allowing 77.8 points and their opponents are shooting 43.9 percent. Oregon as the scorers to play with anyone but they need to find answers on defense.
Washington is 2-8 against the spread in their last 10 home games, 6-2 against the spread in their last eight Thursday games, and 1-5 against the spread following a loss. Oregon is 6-2-1 against the spread in their last nine road games, 0-6-1 against the spread in their last seven games overall, and 4-15-2 against the spread against the Pac-12. The underdog has covered the point spread in the last five meetings of these two.
My free pick in this is on the over and I expect there to be plenty of scoring. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that pick in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
