BookMaker has the Oregon Ducks listed as 6.5-point favorites on the road against the Utah Utes on Saturday afternoon in week 9 of the college football season. Oregon has won six of the last ten while Utah has won two of the last three games in the series. Both teams are 5-5 ATS in the last ten while the Utes are 2-1 ATS in the last three meetings. The Oregon Ducks are 5-1-1 ATS overall, 2-0-1 ATS on the road, 5-1 ATS as a favorite, and 2-1-1 ATS in conference games this season while the Utah Utes are 4-2-1 ATS overall, 3-1 ATS at home, 1-1 ATS as an underdog, and 3-1 ATS in conference games on the year.
Both teams are two of the top teams in the Pac-12 this season, however, Oregon has been the better team at covering the spread this season going 5-1-1 ATS overall and 5-1 ATS as a favorite while Utah is 4-2-1 ATS overall and 1-1 ATS as an underdog. I look for those trends to continue which is why I am buying the .5 point and laying the 6 points with the Oregon Ducks when they travel to face the Utah Utes in week 9 of the college football season.
