The Oregon Ducks are 9-0 straight up and 8-0-1 against the spread in their last nine games against the Washington Huskies, and will try to continue that dominance this Saturday at Husky Stadium. Oregon was a 14-point road favorite against the Top-25 ranked Huskies, according to most shops monitored by OddsShark.com.
Through five games this season, the Ducks have yet to break a sweat. Cruising to a 5-0 SU and ATS record, the Ducks have scored at least 55 points in all five of their games and have allowed no more than 16 points in any of them.
Quarterback Marcus Mariota has broken away from the pack as the clear favorite in the odds to win the Heisman Trophy, and he and the Ducks have a great chance to make a statement against a quality opponent this week facing the Huskies.
Washington took its first loss of the season last week, but gave the Stanford Cardinal a serious run for their money as an eight-point road underdog, falling just short in a 31-28 loss. The Huskies are 4-1 SU and ATS, and have been clicking on both sides of the ball, averaging 37.4 points per game on offense and allowing just 14.8 points per game on defense.
Quarterback Keith Price has bounced back nicely and is playing at a high level after suffering through a down year last season.
To this point in the season, Oregon has looked invincible, but this is easily the toughest test of the season for the Ducks, who have been favored by at least 25.5 points in every other game that they have played. With an 0-9 SU and 0-8-1 ATS record in its last nine games against Oregon, can Washington turn the tide in this betting battle Saturday?
We lean toward the Huskies making it a game, but 14 points just doesn't seem like enough against a powerhouse like Oregon. The Ducks are so dominant on both sides of the ball that even if Washington brings its best, Oregon is still likely to escape with a 14 to 20 point win.
