Why Bet the Oregon Ducks Odds at +2
Oregon bounced back nicely from its heartbreaking 37-35 loss at Arizona State in Week 4 to pound Pac-12 rival Cal in its 45-24 Week 5 win this past Saturday while covering the college football betting line as a 17-point home favorite in the process.
Quarterback Justin Herbert completed 7 of 8 passes for 86 yards and one touchdown, but the Ducks didn’t need to throw the ball much as running back Kani Benoit ran for 138 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries while backup running back Tony Brooks-James added 76 rushing yards and one score on 16 carries. Overall, the Ducks rushed for an impressive 328 yards while holding Cal to a mind-boggling eight rushing yards on 29 carries.
Why Bet the Washington State Cougars Odds at -2
I told you to back Washington State to beat USC and cover the spread last weekend and that’s just what happened as the Cougars handed the previously unbeaten and fifth-ranked Trojans a humbling 30-27 loss in their Pac-12 showdown of nationally-ranked playoff hopefuls.
Quarterback Luke Falk passed for 340 yards and two touchdowns in the win while running back Jamal Morrow added 91 rushing yards and one touchdown on just six carries to stun USC and cash in as a 5-point home underdog.
Expert Analysis and Prediction
Oregon is pretty good this year under Wilie Taggart, but they have a suspect defense which is why I’m going to encourage you to back Mike Leach’s Washington State Cougars to record their third straight win over Oregon and second straight road victory over the Ducks after unleashing a stunning 51-33 spanking on their conference rivals last season.
Washington State has posted a blistering 13-3 ATS mark in their last 16 games following an ATS win while also going 6-2 ATS in their last eight road games against a team with a winning home record.
Conversely, Oregon has gone 1-7-1 ATS in their last nine games following an SU win and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win. Washington State’s Luke Falk will likely be the best player on the field in this matchup.
Pick: Washington State -2
