Utah Utes vs Oregon Ducks
Going to go with the Under. I am fully aware that Oregon’s home games this year have been high-scoring but I do not see that in this one. Oregon has been very strong on offense at home, averaging 82.2 ppg and while tyhe Utes have allowed 77.4 ppg on the road overall, they have allowed just 66.3 ppg in their last three games away from home. The offense for the Utes has been struggling of late as they have averaged just 54 ppg (regulation) in their last five games and just 61.1 ppg on the road. They will not get a whole lot of points against an Oregon team that has allowed just 64.4 ppg at home for the year. Oregon’s last three games overall have averaged just 124.7 ppg while Utah’s last five games have averaged just 112.8 ppg in regulation. Take the Under in this one and the clincher is the fact that the Under is 7-0 in Utah’s last seven games overall.
