Utah vs. Oregon Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Utah vs. Oregon 12/29/17

Can Oregon hold off Utah at home when the two meet up in their Pac-12 opener tonight at 10PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Oregon is the favorite in this game, as the Ducks are getting odds of -9.5 points against Utah. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 149 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Matthew Knight Arena in Eugene, Oregon and air live on FS1.

Utah has gone 2-2 in its last four games as it enters Pac-12 play. The two losses came on the road against Butler and BYU in which they failed to cover in both. Utah is 8-3 overall and 5-4 against the spread. The Utes are averaging 77.5 points per game on offense while allowing 67.9 per game. On the road they score just 67 per game while giving up 79 per contest. David Collette averages 13.5 points and 5.1 rebounds per game, but is out tonight with an ab injury. Justin Bibbins is putting up 12.1 points and 4.5 assists per game.

Oregon is on a five-game winning streak right now to move to 10-3 on the season. The Ducks are just 5-7 against the spread on the season and they are 2-7 ATS in their last nine games. Oregon is averaging 85.3 points per game on offense this year while allowing 70.8 per contest. Payton Pritchard is putting up 16.3 points and 4.6 assists per game while Troy Brown is adding 11.8 points and 7.8 rebounds per contest.

Bet on Utah vs. Oregon

Oregon has won nine straight meetings with Utah, going 8-0-1 against the spread in those games. The Ducks are strong at home while the Utes have struggled on the road. Utah also is battling some injuries to key players, making it tough for them to keep pace with this Oregon offense. The public betting is heavily with Utah, but I think Oregon cruises at home tonight.
