College Football Betting Preview: Oregon Ducks vs. Washington State Cougars
October 21, 2023
The Washington State Cougars will travel to Eugene, Oregon to face the Oregon Ducks at Autzen Stadium in a battle of two Pac-12 teams in week 8 of the college football season with the game airing nationally at 3:30 PM ET on Saturday afternoon on ABC.
Washington State enters this game with a record of 4-2 following a 6-44 loss at home against the Arizona Wildcats while failing to cover the 7.5-point spread as a home favorite in week 7 of the college football season. The Cougars scored 6 points while compiling a total of 234 yards offensively which included 199 passing yards and 35 rushing yards while allowing 44 points and 516 total yards defensively which included 342 passing yards and 174 rushing yards. Cameron Ward led the team in passing, completing 22 of 30 attempts for 192 yards and an interception while rushing for four yards. Dylan Paine led the team in rushing with three carries for 23 yards. Nakia Watson led the team in receiving, catching all five targets for 88 yards.
The Oregon Ducks enter this game with a record of 5-1 following a 33-36 loss on the road against the Washington Huskies while the game ended in a push in week 7 of the college football season. Oregon scored 33 points while compiling a total of 516 yards offensively which included 312 passing yards and 204 rushing yards while allowing 415 total yards defensively which included 316 passing yards and 99 rushing yards. Bo Nix led the team in passing, completing 32 of 43 attempts for 312 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for 14 yards. Bucky Irving led the team in rushing with 22 carries for 127 yards and a touchdown while adding six receptions for 34 yards. Troy Franklin led the team in receiving, catching eight of 11 targets for 154 yards and a touchdown.
BookMaker has the Oregon Ducks listed as 20-point favorites at home against the Washington State Cougars on Saturday afternoon in week 8 of the college football season. Oregon has won six of the last ten including the previous four matchups in a row. The Cougars are 8-2 ATS in the last ten while the Ducks are 2-1 ATS in the last three meetings. Washington State is 3-3 ATS overall, 1-1 ATS on the road, 2-1 ATS as an underdog, and 1-2 ATS in conference games this season while the Oregon Ducks are 5-0-1 ATS overall, 3-0 ATS at home, 5-0 ATS as a favorite, and 2-0-1 ATS in conference games on the year.
Washington State started the season at 4-0 but has since lost their last two games this season including a blowout loss last week at home against the Arizona Wildcats and things won’t get any easier this week when they travel to face the Oregon Ducks. The Ducks have been the better team at covering the spread this season going 5-0-1 ATS overall while the Cougars are 3-3 ATS overall I look for the Ducks to remain perfect this season at covering the spread which is why I am laying the 20 points at home with the Oregon Ducks.
