Betting on the Arizona Wildcats (+28)
Record: 0-0 Overall / 0-3 Conference
It just keeps on getting worse for Arizona’s football program. First, the Wildcats lost their opener to the BYU Cougars (24-16) before getting trounced by the San Diego State Aztecs in Week 2 (38-14). Then over the weekend, Arizona lost to the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks. That defeat at the hands of the Lumberjacks just sums up how bad things are going for Arizona, which is struggling on both ends of the field. There’s no way but up for Arizona. That loss to the Lumberjacks is one of the worst in the program’s history, so expect the Wildcats to come out with more fire against Oregon. The Wildcats are a pass-heavy team, but it’s probably time to increase the usage of their ground game, especially after having three tailbacks average at least 6.0 yards per carry against Northern Arizona. Plus, they will be facing an Oregon defense that had just allowed the Stony Brook Seawolves to rush for 131 yards and a touchdown.
The under is 7-3 in Arizona’s last 10 games.
Betting on the Oregon Ducks (-28)
Record: 0-0 Overall / 3-0 Conference
Unlike the Wildcats, it’s been smooth sailing so far for Anthony Brown and the Ducks. Oregon picked up its third win of the season last Saturday, beating Stony Brook at home, 48-7. Brown went 14/18 for 159 passing yards and a touchdown. Meanwhile, running backs Travis Dye and CJ Verdell rushed for 87 and 54 yards, respectively. Given the toothless nature of Arizona’s defense, it’s not hard to imagine and expect Oregon to put up an offensive show again this coming weekend. Oregon is averaging 33.0 points per game and 431.5 total yards per contest. If an unheard-of Lumberjacks team could have a field day against Arizona, then Oregon’s prospect of lighting it up on Saturday should be very good, to say the least. Oregon’s defense should also have success. The Ducks are forcing 2.0 turnovers per game this season.
Oregon is 6-4 against the spread in its last 10 games as the home team against Arizona.
Oregon wins, 39-13.
