The public apparently doesn't want to lay that many points because the majority of tickets for this game are on the Ducks plus the points.
Key Betting Trends
The Ducks are a perfect 5-0 against the spread in their last five road games versus the Huskies and are 12-3-1 against the number in their last 16 games overall versus Washington. That said, the favorite is 15-5-1 against the number in the last 21 meetings between these two teams.
OUR PREDICTION: Washington has held opponents to 1.7 yards per carry in their last three games and can key on Oregon running back Royce Freeman. If the Huskies dominant the Ducks upfront, then this will be a low-scoring game throughout because Washington also has 14 sacks over its last three games as well, so passing won't be easy for Oregon.
When these two teams met a year ago in Eugene, Washington ended a 12-year winning drought in Oregon and pounded the Ducks, 70-21. The Huskies looked great offensively versus UCLA's horrendous defense last week but I don't see another 70-point outing for Washington this time around. Oregon is a better team overall this year, especially on defense.
The under has cashed in five of the last seven meetings between the Ducks and Huskies. The under is also a perfect 7-0 in Oregon's last seven road games, is 5-2 in its last seven games overall, and is 6-2 in its last eight conference matchups. On the other side, the under is 7-1-1 in the Huskies' last nine conference games and is 4-1 in their last five games overall.
