The Oregon Ducks and Utah Utes face off on Saturday in a Pac-12 college football showdown at Rice-Eccles Stadium. When these two teams last faced off in 2019. Oregon came away with the 37-15 victory.
The Oregon Ducks currently sit with a 9-1 record overall and they seem to still control their destiny for the college football playoffs. In the last game against Washington State, Oregon’s offense was strong again scoring 38 points, and even though they gave up 24 points, they still came away with the victory. Oregon is averaging 35.3 points per game while their defense is giving up 22.6 points per game. Anthony Brown has been the best player for the Ducks throwing for 2,030 yards, 12 touchdowns, and four interceptions. Travis Dye has also rushed for 908 yards and 12 touchdowns.
On the other side of this matchup is the Utah Utes who sit with a 7-3 record overall and they have won three games in a row. .In each of the last three games, Utah has scored at least 38 points, and they are going to need the offense to be good again in this game. Utah is averaging 35.7 points while their defense is giving up 23.8 points per game. Under center for Utah is Cameron Rising who has thrown for 1,752 yards, 14 touchdowns, and two interceptions. Tavion Thomas has also rushed for 742 yards and 14 touchdowns.
Oregon is 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 games against teams with a winning record. Utah is 6-2 against the spread in their last eight games in November. The over is 4-1 in Oregon’s last five games in November. The underdog is 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings. The over is 7-1 in the last eight meetings.
When these two teams face off the over has been a strong play, and it’s going to be no different in this game. Both of these offenses are good, and I don’t see a whole lot of defense being played by either of these teams. Back the over.
