|2018 PAC-12 STANDINGS|
Colorado at Arizona (Fri. - FOX Sports 1, 10:30 p.m. ET)
The Buffaloes have been skidding - hard - losing three in a row after going into USC unbeaten and with a Top 25 ranking a few weeks ago. Arizona is recovering somewhat, and they have Khalil Tate back at the helm on offense after an ankle injury. These teams are still alive in the Pac-12 South for a berth in the championship game, believe it or not. A loss, though, and they're likely done. Colorado is 2-5 ATS in their past seven on the road against a team with a losing home record, while going 0-3-1 ATS in the past four in November. Arizona is 6-2 ATS in the past eight at home, and 5-2 ATS in their past seven overall. However, the road team has dominated this series with a 6-0 ATS mark across the past six games. The over is also 6-1 in the past seven meetings.
Utah at Arizona State (No national TV, 4:00 p.m.)
The Utes appear to be the class of the Pac-12 South, they just need to prove it with a big road win against a Sun Devils team still in the hunt. The Utes are favored by a touchdown as of Thursday morning. Utah is 4-0 ATS in the past four conference games, and 4-0 ATS in the past four games overall while going 20-8 ATS in their past 28 overall. AZ State hasn't been too shabby against the number lately, either, going 15-6 ATS in their past 21 at home, and 10-4 ATS in the past 14 league games. Utah has dominated the series lately, at least against the number, cashing in four of the past five meetings.
UCLA at Oregon (FOX, 7:30 p.m.)
The Bruins opened the season 0-5, but they rattled off a pair of wins to actually get themselves back into the hunt in the Pac-12 South race believe it or not. Or really, the rest of the field played their way down to UCLA's level. In any event, Oregon has send them off and eliminate them from bowl eligibility with a bounce-back game. A couple of weeks ago Oregon was feeling good about itself with a win over Washington, and the sky seemed to be the limit. Now, the sky is falling. Both teams have been ugly against the number, as UCLA is 5-11 ATS in the past 16 conference games and 5-12 ATS in their past 17 on the road. Oregon is 2-7 ATS in their past nine overall, and 1-5 ATS in the past six at home. They're also a dismal 1-8 ATS in the past nine against teams with a losing record, too. The favorite has hit in five of the past six in this series, while the under is 5-2-2 in the past nine meetings overall.
Stanford at Washington (Pac-12 Network, 9:00 p.m.)
Just a few weeks ago this looked like it might be a play-in game for the conference's chance at a playoff team. Now, both teams are starting a fourth loss in the face. The Huskies are 10-point favorites as of Thursday morning, but neither side appears to have a lot of momentum lately. Stanford is 4-1 ATS in their past five road games, while Washington is 4-1 ATS in the past five home games against teams with a losing road record. However, the Huskies are also 1-4 ATS in the past five against winning sides and 0-5 ATS in their past five confernece tilts. The over is 4-1 in Stanford's past five overall, and 4-1 in their past five road outings. The undere has dominated for UW, going 8-1 in their past nine games and 4-0 in the past four at home. The under is also 5-1 in their past six league games. The home team has hit in four straight against the number, while the under is 5-2 in the past seven meetings in Seattle.
Southern California at Oregon State (FS1, 10:00 p.m.)
The Trojans slipped to .500 with a loss last week, while Oregon State kept hope alive for a bowl appearance, winning at Colorado. However, the Beavs have to win out to go bowling. The way things have gone in the Pac-12 this year, who knows? USC opened as a two-touchdown favorite and the number moved to 16 1/2 by Thursday morning. While USC is 7-3 ATS in their past 10 against losing teams, they're just 5-17-1 ATS in the past 23 overall, 2-6-1 ATS in the past nine league games and 2-8-1 ATS in the past 11 on the road. Oregon State has posted a 4-1 ATS mark in their past five following a straight-up win. However, they're just 1-4 ATS in the past five at home and 1-8 ATS in the past nine inside the conference. In this series the underdog is 5-1 ATS in the past six, with USC just 1-5 ATS in their past six trips to Corvallis. The home team is 8-3 ATS in the past 11, too. The under has also cashed in four in a row in the series, and four of the past five in Corvallis.
California at Washington State (ESPN, 10:45 p.m.)
Washington State has been automatic against the number this season, posting an unblemished 8-0 ATS mark. They're in the driver's seat in the Pac-12 North, and they might still have an outside chance at a spot in the national playoff if things break a certain way and we get pandemonium in the final month. They need to keep the peddle to the metal, though, and now slip up against a team like Cal. The Golden Bears are 4-1 ATS i nthe past five road games, while going 5-2 ATS in the past seven battles against teams with a winning record. The Cougars are 5-0 ATS in the past five against teams with a winning record, while going 18-6 ATS in their past 24 on The Palouse. They're also 23-9 ATS in the past 32 inside the league. The road team is 10-4 ATS in the past 14 in this series, however, with the under going 6-1-1 in the past eight meetings.
