Ducks roll past Utes
Oregon cruised to an 80-62 win Sunday at home over Utah to improve to 20-6 overall and 9-4 in the Pac-12 Conference. The Ducks led 44-30 at halftime on their way to the triumph. Payton Pritchard led Oregon with 25 points on 8-of-13 shooting including 5-of-9 from 3-point distance plus 4-of-4 at the free throw line. He also recorded two steals.

Addison Patterson added 10 points, three caroms and two blocked shots off the bench.

College Basketball Betting Trends
The road team is 10-4-1 ATS in the last 15 meetings. The favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings.
The Sun Devils are 2-4 ATS in the last six meetings. Arizona State is 1-5 straight up in the last six meetings.
The Ducks lost 78-64 last season at Arizona State and the hosts are around the same talent level this season, so with the way Oregon has played on the road lately it makes me want to side with the Sun Devils. Arizona State has been playing with a lot of confidence as of late and while it plays at a very fast tempo, the bread and butter for the hosts is the defense. Getting a key stop or two down the stretch might be the difference. I'm betting ASU has it in the tank to get it done.
