The Stanford Cardinal need a win after splitting their last eight games. The Stanford Cardinal are averaging 70.2 points on 47.4 percent shooting and allowing 61.9 points on 39.3 percent shooting. Oscar da Silva is averaging 16.1 points and 6.5 rebounds while Tyrell Terry is averaging 15.4 points and 3.1 assists. Spencer Jones is grabbing 3.4 rebounds and Daeion Davis is dishing 3.5 assists. The Stanford Cardinal are shooting 37.1 percent from beyond the arc and 70 percent from the free throw line. The Stanford Cardinal are allowing 29 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 30.4 rebounds per game. The Stanford Cardinal have lost five of their last seven road games.
The Oregon Ducks look to stay hot after winning five of their last six games. The Oregon Ducks are averaging 75.7 points on 46.7 percent shooting and allowing 66.7 points on 40.5 percent shooting. Payton Pritchard is averaging 19.8 points and 4.3 rebounds while Chris Duarte is averaging 13.7 points and 5.7 rebounds. Will Richardson is dishing 2.6 assists and Anthony Mathis is grabbing 2.4 rebounds. The Oregon Ducks are shooting 39.2 percent from beyond the arc and 69.7 percent from the free throw line. The Oregon Ducks are allowing 32.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.1 rebounds per game. The Oregon Ducks haven’t lost a home game this season.
The home team is 7-0 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
The Stanford Cardinal have been kind to us all season long and have proven they can win on the road, even if their recent road trips haven't been all that successful. With that said, the Oregon Ducks are 11-5 against the spread at home where they win by an average of 18.4 points while shooting 51 percent from the field and 44.2 percent from deep. Oregon has covered five straight at home and is 10-5 against the spread overall this season when favorites of five or more points. I'll eat the reasonable chalk with Oregon based on how dominant this team has been at home this season.
