Why Bet On Washington State?

Despite the fact that Washington State isn’t experiencing the same level of success they did in reaching the double-digit win mark a year ago, there are a few good reasons to back the Cougars in this contest. Washington State managed to snap a three-game losing streak by smacking Colorado around en route to a commanding 41-10 win as a 13.5-point home favorite.

Then, there’s the fact that the Cougars have the nation’s top-ranked passing attack and eighth-ranked scoring offense (42.7 ppg) while senior quarterback Anthony Gordon leads the NCAA with 2,981 passing yards and 29 touchdown passes. Last but not least, Washington State has won four straight in this rivalry including an emphatic 34-20 home win last season. Cougars head coach coach Mike Leach is 4-3 all-time against the Ducks and 2-1 at Autzen Stadium.

Why Bet On No. 11 Oregon?

There are a handful of great reasons to back the Ducks in this matchup. First, Oregon has won six straight since losing their opener against Auburn. In addition to that, the Ducks will come into this affair riding the euphoric wave created by their stunning 35-31 comeback win over Washington last weekend. Then, there’s the fact that Oregon has an elite quarterback in potential No. 1 overall draft pick Justin Herbert, the Pac-12’s offensive player of the week on Monday after passing for 280 yards with four TDs and no interceptions last weekend. There’s also the fact that Oregon has an elite defense that limits the opposition to just 11.9 points per game to rank a stellar seventh in points allowed. Last but not least, Oregon will be ighly motivated to snap a four-game skid against the Cougars.

“We recognize the fact that we have not done a good enough job against Washington State for the past four years,” Ducks head coach Mario Cristobal said. “They have a super high-powered offense with some impressive skill players and a great offensive line. And their defense has made it really difficult for years with all of the movement and all of the stemming that they have done.”

Washington State vs Oregon Expert Analysis and Prediction

I’m not going to beat around the bush with my pick on this week 9 matchup simply because I believe the spread is way too high for the Ducks to cover. I know Oregon is playing at home and that they have the far better defense in this affair, but Washington State can put points on the board in a hurry and they’ve been absolutely dominant in covering the chalk against their Pac-12 rivals in this series.

The Cougars are a bankroll-boosting 9-0 ATS in their last 9 meetings and a perfect 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road dates against Oregon. With the underdog going 7-2 ATS in their last 9 meetings and the Over going 11-5 in the last 16 meetings, I believe the handwriting is on the wall for an Oregon Win and Washington State cover in a high-scoring affair.

Pick: Oregon 35 Washington State 31
