Three Pac-12 Predictions for Saturday

Pac-12 Predictions: Will Washington, Utah & Oregon Cover? 2/17/18

With most of Saturday's slate in the books, we head West for three Pac-12 matchups. Here are picks for those games.

Colorado at Washington, 8:00 p.m. ET, Pac12 Network

According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the Huskies opened as 4-point home favorites but despite 87% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on Washington, the line dropped to 3.5. I still like the Huskies, who are 5-2-1 against the spread in their last eight games overall and are 4-1 ATS in their last five games played on Saturday. The Buffaloes, meanwhile, are 1-3-1 at the betting window in their last five trips to Washington.

Pac-12 Prediction: Washington Huskies -3.5

Utah at Washington State, 10:00 p.m. ET, ESPN2

The Utes hit the board as 7.5-point favorites and that's where the number currently sits. As of this writing 71% of betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on Utah to cover the spread. The Utes are 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings against Washington State and have covered the spread in all five of their last five games coming off a win. Utah is also 6-1-1 at the betting window in its last eight games overall.

Pac-12 Prediction: Utah Utes -7.5

Oregon at UCLA, 10:15 p.m. ET, ESPN

The Bruins opened as a 5-point home favorite but the line has been bet down to 3.5 at most books. As of Saturday afternoon, 57% of the betting tickets for this game are on the Ducks, so there could be both public bettors are sharp money on Oregon. The Ducks are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games versus the Bruins and have covered in six of their last eight road games versus UCLA.

Pac-12 Prediction: Oregon Ducks +3.5
