Ducks Trying to Build Off Win Against Ranked BYU
Continuing our Oregon vs Washington State betting odds preview: Last week, Bo Nix, an Auburn Tiger transfer made his presence felt when he led the Oregon Ducks to a 41-21 win over #12 BYU. It was a big win at a time when critics were asking if Oregon was worth the hype after getting demolished by 46 points against Georgia.
The NCAAF schedule is paving the way for Oregon to string together wins until November when they face Washington and Utah at home before ending the season in Corvallis against Oregon State. By then, there is a reasonable assumption that Nix will get better as the season progresses putting the Ducks in line for a major bowl berth.
First-year Head Coach Dan Lanning inherits a team that has not been great against the number over the last six seasons, covering just 30 of 73 games while Oregon bettors 1478 units. As a favorite, they’re just 21-27 ATS (-734 units). Over the last six seasons, Oregon is just 4-8 ATS when receiving more than 75% of the total money wagered. Lanning indicated that RB Byron Caldwell, Jr, and LB Justin Flowe would be back this week after missing the BYU game.
Cougars Hoping to Add Another Ranked Opponent Win to Resume
Washington State is rolling. With a win against #19 Wisconsin to their credit, they know they can make a large leap up the polls with a win against the Ducks. Washington State team stats show that quarterback Cameron Ward is one of the better signal callers in the league after throwing for 299 yards and four touchdowns against the Colorado State Rams.
Washington State Football score, when they take a notion to doing so – and they have been terrific against the spread over the last two seasons, covering 10 of their last 14 games (+516 units). It is important to note that they have failed to cover their last two meetings against the Ducks. Last season the Ducks covered by the hook as a 13.5-pt home favorite (38-24).
Second-year head coach Jake Dickert is hoping to score early and often as they did a week ago when they score on their first four possessions against the Rams. Through seven games, Dickert is 4-3 but it says a lot when they could have easily been looking ahead to this game while facing one of the weaker Mountain West Conference teams.
Public Betting Ducks, Pushing Spread Up to Seven
Concluding our Oregon vs Washington State betting odds preview: Betting patterns indicate that the public isn’t indecisive with who they’re back in this one. With 82% of the total spread wagers coming in on Oregon, the books have been compelled to move this number up to seven from six. It remains to be seen whether they’ll move off the key number but there is very little to indicate that early betting trends will change by game time.
We believe that the number is accurate and will give us very little value either way. To conclude our Oregon vs Washington State preview, our recommendation is to bet over the total of 57.5, but don’t wait until kick-off. We’ve already seen this number move four points after opening at 53.5. It appears this game will be into the ’60s so wager accordingly.Follow us on Twitter
