Oregon has won three straight meetings with Oregon State, covering the spread in the last two meetings as well. The Ducks have been playing pretty well in recent weeks despite a setback at home against Utah. The Ducks have the better offense and a comparable defense. While Oregon has struggled to score on the road in previous games, I don’t think Oregon State will have enough to stop them. The public betting is backing Oregon tonight and I am with the Ducks as well.
