Oregon Vs Utah Spread Betting PickNoah Williams
The Utah Utes are in the mix for a prized Bowl game after flirting with a top-10 ranking and host the Oregon Ducks on the backstretch of the College Football gambling season. Week 12’s college football spread favors the Utes by over two touchdowns. This game kicks-off at 2 p.m. ET on Saturday, November 19th at PM from Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Oregon has a 3-7-0 record with a dismal 1-7-2 against the spread. Utah is an impressive 8-2 straight up on the season while the Utes are 6-4-0 ATS so far in 2016.

Bet on Oregon +13.0 Because…
This may not be the Oregon Ducks that quack, rack and stack yards and points on EVERY opponent from just years ago, but don’t ever count out tradition and….
The Ducks have some serious history and tradition that they will not let slide (nor will Phil Knight) because they are in a down-time. This team will make this game against Utah close with their offensive prowess they have demonstrated all year with the 22nd ranked offense overall in the FBS and an always present passing game against a BAD passing defense.
The Ducks are coming off a 52-27 loss to Stanford.
Fourth-year coach Mark Helfrich, who guided the program to the national championship game in the 2014 season, acknowledged it has been a difficult season.
“Yeah the frustrations are different,” he said.
“There’s always the segment of the team that’s frustrated, whether that’s a role or a position. There’s always something. This is different. It’s not any fun. Not having a ton of fun, which is something you have to squeeze out of it at this point and play to their competitiveness and play to all those aspects of why they’re here.”
Bet on Utah -13.0 Because…
The Utes are hosting Oregon in their own cozy stadium after a longer rest period to get rested and healthy following the 49-26 drubbing they put on Arizona State University on a Thursday. Utah rocked the house last game with 11 sacks, but remember it was against the Sun Devils who sport the 124th ranked total defense in the FBS standings.
As surprising as this may seem, the Oregon Ducks have a defense that is worse than the Sun Devils. Any defense that ranks exactly 120th in both rushing defense and passing defense doesn’t have much chance to win ANY game or cover NCAA betting against the spread in ANY game. FIRE ON UTAH!
“All of our focus, all of our attention, is on the Ducks this week,” coach Kyle Whittingham said.
“There is not a chance we will be looking past those guys. Not a chance at all. They’re very talented on offense. I mean, they’re Oregon. They have had some struggles on defense this year, but offensively, they’re scoring points, they’re moving the ball. They’ve got firepower.”
Oregon Vs Utah Spread Betting Pick
This is a Pac-12 game matching the No. 3 ranked Utes in the South against the No. 5 ranked Ducks in the North, but on paper it doesn’t look close. These defenses are both way sub-standard, and this will be a fun game to watch if you bet OVER the 70.5 total for the game.
Since this game is on the road, I don’t see Oregon covering such a giant spread for the way the season is unfolding for them. Utah will be tough in this game. I think the Utes win in a high scoring affair.
