Against The Spread Pick
It’s a big-time Pac 12 showdown on Saturday with the Oregon Ducks and the Stanford Cardinal going head to head. The Ducks struggle on the road and even though their record on the highway is 4-2, it could easily be 2-4. In their last game on the road, it took overtime to get a win over Washington and the game before that they lost by 11 points to Washington State. On the road they are averaging only 67.8 points per game and that type of offensive production is going to do them in. Even though Stanford has lost three straight games, this is a good bounce-back spot for them. Back the Cardinal to get the job done.
Over Under Pick
This is a hard total because the Ducks have been involved in a lot of games that go over, and the Cardinal play in a lot of games that go under the total. With the way the Ducks’ defense struggles on the road, the Cardinal are going to score, and the Ducks are going to find a way to get the offense going. The over is 15-5-1 in the Ducks’ last 21 games overall. Back the over to cash in this game, but only as a lean.
