Oregon Ducks 23-Point Chalk at Home Against Arizona

Thursday night college football heads to the Pacific Northwest, when the Oregon Ducks host the Arizona Wildcats in a Pac-12 showdown.

Last season, the Wildcats upset the Ducks 42-16 and the Ducks will be looking to take their revenge.

The line has Oregon favored by 23 points on Bovada and topbet, while on betonline and sportsbook.com the point total is sitting on 79.

Arizona enters this matchup at 4-0 SU and 1-3 ATS. The Wildcats are 6-3 SU over the past 9 head-to-head games with Oregon.

Arizona is 1-4 against the number over its past 5 games as a road dog.

Oregon is also 1-4 against the spread in its past five home games as a favorite. The Ducks are also 2-7 ATS over their past 9 games overall.

In point totals, the OVER is 4-1 over the past five games Oregon has been the favorite at home.

Last season when the two met, the Ducks had been defeated by Stanford two weeks earlier and did not have an opportunity for a perfect season.

Marcus Mariota the talented Oregon quarterback will be looking to dissect the Arizona secondary and put up a number of points on the board.

The Arizona rushing offense is strong and with quarterback Anu Solomon coming off a five-touchdown effort on September 20 against Cal.

Two seasons ago, the Ducks defeated Arizona at home 49-0 as a favorite by 20 points.

Nick Wilson the talented freshman running back for Arizona helped the Wildcats to their Hail Mary win over Cal 49-45. He leads the Pac-12 in rushing.

However, Arizona on the road following a bye is 1-4 SU and ATS. The only ATS win in that stretch was against the Ducks in 2010 when the Wildcats lost 48-29 but covered an underdog spread of 20.5 points.

Oregon is coming off a September 20 win of 38-31 over Washington State, but they failed again to cover a 21.5 spread as the favorite.

At home, following a bye, the Ducks are 10-0 SU in their past 10 and 6-2 ATS over their past 8.

With both teams only covering a combined 2 of 8 games this season, the advantage of playing at home could be big for Oregon.

Some believe Arizona will score and kept it within the 23-point spread, but I think differently I am taking the Ducks in a lopsided 55-21 win.
