Cougars end losing streak
Washington State put an end to a three-game losing streak last weekend when it picked up a 41-10 win over Colorado at home. The Cougars are now 4-3 on the season, 1-3 in the Pac-12, 2-5 against the spread and 4-3 with the under.
The Cougars have one of the best offenses in the nation, but one of the worst defenses as well. The Washington State offense is putting up 42.7 points and 532.7 yards per game, while the defense is giving up 28.7 points and 439.1 yards per contest. Anthony Gordon has thrown for 2,981 yards and 29 touchdowns this year to lead the team. Easop Winston Jr. is the leading receiver with 47 receptions for 578 yards and nine scores. Max Borghi is leading the ground attack with 512 yards and six touchdowns.
Ducks keep winning
Since losing to Auburn by six in the season opener, Oregon has rattled off six straight victories, including a 35-31 win at Washington last weekend. The Ducks are now 6-1 on the season, 4-0 in the Pac-12, 4-3 against the spread and 5-2 with the under.
Usually known for being a dominant offense, it’s the Oregon defense that has been the story this year. The Ducks are giving up just 11.9 points and 291.3 yards per game this season. Jevon Holland is leading the defense with 27 tackles and three interceptions. Oregon is still pretty respectable on offense as well, averaging 35.9 points and 462 yards per game. Justin Herbert is leading the offense with 1,882 passing yards and 21 touchdowns while CJ Verdell is leading the ground attack with 496 yards. Jacob Breeland is the leading receiver with 26 catches for 405 yards and six scores.
College Football Betting Trends
The Cougars are 9-3 with the over in their last 12 road games and 10-4 with the over in their last 14 games following a cover.
The Ducks have hit the under in five of their last six games in October and in 5-1-1 with the under in their last seven games following a win.
These two have hit the under in their last two meetings, with Oregon struggling to do much scoring. I don’t think that is the main issue here. The issue here will be what Washington State does on offense. We have already seen the Cougars held to 13 points at Utah. I think the Oregon defense is even better, especially being at home. Oregon should be able to contain the Cougars while scoring a healthy amount of points on offense. However, the total is being set very high for a team with such a strong defense.
