Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Huskies are 3.5-point favorites to beat the Ducks. The total, meanwhile, sits at 57.5 points. As of this writing, 56% of the public betting tickets wagered on this matchup are on the Huskies.

Washington Huskies

Washington senior QB Jake Browning completed 18-of-26 passes for 265 yards with a touchdown and interception and ran for 49 yards and a score in a 31-24 victory over UCLA on Saturday. Browning's interception was a high throw that went over the head of Aaron Fuller. After that pick, Browning was back to being his accurate self, but it was his legs that did much of the damage, as he converted on several sneaks and picked up a few huge first downs to keep the Bruins from pulling off the monumental upset. Browning and the Huskies are going to have to be much better next Saturday in Autzen against Oregon.

Oregon Ducks

On the latest big board for the 2019 draft courtesy of Draftwire's Luke Easterling, Oregon junior QB Justin Herbert was one of just two offensive players ranked in the top-10. A few big boards have a little more offensive flair up top, but by-and-large, Easterling's top-10 is a strong representation of the consensus on the very front-end of the class. That is to say, dominated by defensive prospects. Ed Oliver, Clelin Ferrell, Jonah Williams and Josh Allen make up the analyst's top-five. Beyond Williams, the stud offensive tackle at Alabama, the only other offensive player to make the top cut was Oregon QB Justin Herbert, who slots in at No. 9 for Mr. Easterling.

Betting Trends

Washington

The Huskies are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games overall.

Oregon

The Ducks are 0-5 against the number in their last five home games.

Prediction

Back before the start of the season, Washington as a 10-point favorite in this game. In September, the lookahead line was down to Washington -6.5. Now the Huskies are only a 3.5-point favorite? What changed that much over the past few months to make the spread drop that much? Yes, Oregon should have beaten Stanford. But I worry about the Ducks’ defense heading into this one and while Jake Browning has underperformed in his senior year, I believe he does enough to lead Washington to victory (as well as a cover).
