Utah is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games. The over is 4-0 in Utah’s last 4 road games. Oregon is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games. The over is 5-1 in Oregon’s last 6 home games. The road team is 6-1-1 ATS in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings.
Both of these teams have struggled to start the season and find themselves below .500 in conference play. Oregon did play Baylor tough, but has been inconsistent against lesser teams. This should be a tight game, but I am going to take Oregon at home. Utah has lost their last two road games by a combined 20 points. I will take the Ducks here.
