Pac-12 Championship Game Prediction
It'll be No. 1 vs. No. 2 in the Pac-12 Championship on Saturday night when the Oregon Ducks will face the Utah Utes at 10:00PM ET.
After opening as a 1-point favorite the Ducks are now -1.5 to beat the Utes according to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI. Oregon enters tonight's title game having won eight of its last 10 games while Utah has won nine of its last 10. The total for tonight's game currently sits at 142 points.
The Ducks went 2-0 against the Utes in the regular season and were the only team to beat Utah on its home floor. And not only did Oregon beat Utah, it drummed the Utes by 18 points.
Dillon Brooks averaged 25.5 points, 7.0 boards and 4.5 assists on 58% shooting in his two games against Utah this season and with Oregon's offense relentless as it is, the Utes will have trouble matching up again. If Utah can't figure out a way to slow Oregon's tempo, then this game could get away from the Utes.
Utah is 0-5-1 against the spread in its last six games versus Oregon, which is 4-1 against the number in its last five games overall. The Ducks are also 51-23-3 at the betting window in their last 77 games following an ATS win and while both teams enter tonight red-hot, Oregon is a solid play given its recent domination of the Utes.
