Betting Odds: Utah (+200) - Over/Under (47.5)
Pick: Utah ML (+200)
The back half of the college football season is in full swing and this is one of the most important games of the year. As the Oregon Ducks hit the road to Utah to play the Utes in this massive conference matchup. This game will have an immediate effect on the Pac-12 standings and could determine one of the participants in the conference championship game, and it will have an immediate effect on the college football playoff picture as well. Both of these teams come into this game with identical records as they have each picked up six victories on the season with only a single loss. The winner of this game will remain alive in the playoff conversation while the loser will have to settle for playing in a lower bowl game this season and miss out on the Pac-12 conference title game as well.
It has been a solid season for the Oregon Ducks, and they will be looking to add a crucial victory to their record here on Saturday afternoon against Utah on the road. This is arguably going to be their most important game of the season outside of their game against Washington a few weeks ago and this game could likely directly determine if they make the Pac-12 conference championship game or not. So will be crucial for them to go into Utah, and be the first team to beat them in nearly 4 years at home.
Quarterback Bo Nix has been playing solid football throughout the first eight weeks of the season, and he will be looking to keep it up here on Saturday afternoon as a solid performance could potentially cement his Heisman trophy contention. Victory for Oregon would also put them in the driver seat for second place in the Pac-12 conferences. They look to run down Washington and get a potential rematch with the Huskies in the Pac-12 conference championship game. Oregon comes into this game on a one game winning streak after their victory against Washington state in their previous contest.

The Utah Utes have been undefeated at home for the last three seasons, and they will be looking to keep that streak alive with a victory here on Saturday afternoon against the Oregon Ducks. It was announced earlier this week that Utah was shutting their quarterback down for the season so the backup Bryson Barnes would lead the way for the remainder of the year. He will be looking to lead them to a huge monumental victory over Oregon here on Saturday afternoon and firmly put Utah in second place of the conference standings heading into the final five weeks of the regular season.
It has been a solid season up until this point for Utah and they will be looking to keep the momentum rolling here in this game as they look to keep their undefeated streak alive at home and grab a crucial top 15 victory late in the regular season to remain in contention for the college football playoff race. Utah comes into this game on a two game winning streak and they will be looking to grab their third consecutive victory of the season here on Saturday afternoon at home. They have scored over 30 points in each of their last two games and they will need to replicate that feat if they want to grab a victory here in this room against Oregon.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Utah has won 14 straight games at home
- Utah is 4-1 after a win this season
- Utah is 4-0 at home this season
I expect this to be a close and high scoring game between two of the best teams on the West Coast in the country. This is likely going to be the best game of the entire weekend and I look for it to be a complete shootout between Oregon and Utah here on Saturday afternoon. In the end, I think it’ll be Utah that comes out on top as they have a been a very hard team to beat at home over the last several seasons, and I expect them to feed off of their home crowd and pick up massive victory on Saturday afternoon.As always, get our VIP Pick Free Tonight by Clicking Here!
