Washington Huskies vs. Oregon Ducks NCAA Football Betting Picks
Posted by: Charlie Smith
This weekend’s NCAA football betting lineup is filled to the brim with enticing matchups. One such pairing is this weekend’s Washington Huskies vs. Oregon Ducks pairing, which pits the No. 7th team in the nation against No. 17 Oregon. Both sides are having successful seasons but have fallen short of undefeated records. So, who will the NCAA sportsbook odds peg as the betting favorite this weekend? Let’s take a look at the lines to get a better idea.

NCAA Football Betting Odds:
The Huskies pounce into this weekend’s action proudly sporting their 5-1 record. So far Washington’s lone loss of the season was their opener, a 21-16 loss to No. 9 Auburn. All in all it’s not surprising that Washington hasn’t lost a match since that game against the Tigers, considering how weak the competition they’ve faced has been. In fact, they’ve only faced one nationally ranked opponent since then, No. 20 BYU. And even though Washington has been pummeling the competition, beating up unranked opponents is nothing to brag about. Furthermore, this past weekend’s 31-24 triumph over unranked UCLA wasn’t all that impressive. Ultimately No. 17 Oregon represents a worthy challenge for Washington. The program hasn’t had much luck against Washington lately, seeing as how they’re 2-8 in their last 10 matchups. The odds are pegging Washington as the favorite this weekend but it’ll be interesting to see how they handle themselves on the road.
Players to Watch: Jake Browning (1,508 passing yards, 9 TD, 5 INT), Myles Gaskin (554 rushing yards, 5 TD, 4.5 AVG), and Aaron Fuller (574 receiving yards, 2 TD, 35 REC).
The Ducks swim into this weekend’s action sporting a 4-1 record that pegs them as the 4th best team in the Pac – 12 North. Although they have a killer record on the year, Oregon is being held back by their 38-31 loss to No. 7 Stanford just a couple of weeks ago. And although they were able to bounce back bigly 42-24 against No. 24 California this past weekend, NCAA bookmakers are still siding against Oregon this Saturday. It’ll be interesting to see what Oregon is able to do against the Huskies, since they come in with the more explosive offense. Right now the Ducks are putting up 45.6 points per game, which vastly eclipses the 29.2 that Washington garners. On the other hand, Washington’s 13.7 points allowed per game is superior to the 24.4 that Oregon delivers. Will this delve into a shootout or a defensive battle?
Players to Watch: Justin Herbert(1,411 passing yards, 15 TD, 5 INT), CJ Verdell (420 rushing yards, 2 TD, 6.2 AVG), and Dillon Mitchell (442 receiving yards, 2 TD, 27 REC).
