10* PAC 12 ELITE OF THE ELITE > > SIDE WINNER FOR OREGON/UTAH!
Utah vs. Oregon,
12/06/2019 20:00 EDT,
Score: 15 - 37
Point Spread: +6½/+103 Oregon
The set-up: Oregon lost a game to ASU a couple of weeks ago. The Ducks likely won't be invited to the Playoff Championship with a win today, but Utah likely would. The Ducks are out to play spoiler and to pull off a big upset in the Pac 12 Championship and in a contest which I see coming down to the wire, I'm going to ultimately recommend to grab the points. Utah's only loss came against USC and since then it's been pretty much perfect, led by a tough defense. Oregon lost to Auburn in its opener and then posted nine straight wins. And with what I feel to be the best QB in the conference in Justin Hebert leading the way, I absolutely believe that the Ducks have much more than just a "punchers chance" in this one (also note that the Ducks rank 10th in the nation in rushing defense.)
The pick: Utah's been unbelievable, but it's had to "bend" and not "break" a couple of times (allowing 30 points to USC and 28 to Washington.) Additionally note that the Utes are just 1-3 ATS in their last four played on a neutral field, while the Ducks are 4-1 ATS this season following a home victory. I think that matters here as I look for Oregon to at the very least, keep this one competitive until the final moments. Grab the points.
