Odds Subject to Change

The Ducks are favored by four points at home for this Pac-12 tilt. The total line for the game has been opened at 143.5 points.

Arizona is 3-0 straight-up in its last three games, including a road upset over USC on Feb. 20. It is still just 3-5 against the spread in its last eight games. The total has stayed UNDER in eight of its last 11 games.

The Wildcats lost to Oregon by two points on Feb. 13 as slight 1.5-point home favorites. This extended their SU losing streak in this series to six games. They are just 2-8 SU and ATS in their last 10 games against the Ducks.

Oregon moved to 7-1 SU (4-3 ATS) with Saturday’s 11-point road victory over California as a nine-point favorite. The total has gone OVER in its last two games after staying UNDER in its previous five outings.

The Ducks are 9-2 SU at home this season but they have failed to cover in four of their last five home games. The total went OVER in three of those five games.

Arizona-Oregon Predictions

Give Arizona credit for its strong finish down the stretch, but Oregon is clearly the better all- around team in this matchup. It has also completely controlled this series over the past several seasons.

I'm looking for this season’s sweep on Monday night with another Ducks’ win covering the current spread.

I'm also sticking with the recent betting trends on the total line favoring the UNDER. I have defense playing a bigger role in deciding Monday’s outcome to keep the scoring lower than expected on the current total line.

  • Best Bets: Oregon -4
  • Best Bets: UNDER
