Bet on Washington State vs. Oregon

Washington State has dominated this series at the betting window, but the Cougars have done so as an underdog each time. Washington State now hits the road as a favorite today, which I don’t like. The Cougars are playing in their first road game of the season, which is always a challenge. Especially at a place like Autzen Stadium. Oregon has looked pretty good on defense this year and the offense is right up there with Washington State in terms of production. Give me the Ducks as a home dog.
