The Utes are 14-6 ATS in their last 20 neutral site games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Ducks are 51-23-3 ATS in their last 77 games following a ATS win and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Utes are 0-5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
Oregon is far more consistent on the offensive end and has the rest advantage over Utah after the Utes played later and in overtime. I give the slight edge to the Ducks here.
