Oregon at Utah Betting Preview
Three things you should know before betting on Oregon-Utah:
1. The home team has won and covered in each of the last three meetings between Oregon and Utah, and the Utes have to be feeling good about their chances of winning this game in front of what should be one of the most electric crowds of the entire college season. Both teams come into this one playing extremely well, with Oregon having won five in a row — and covering in three of the last four — and Utah being winners of six of its last seven.
2. Utah is 15-0 straight-up and 13-2 against the spread in the team's last 15 conference games as a home favorite dating back to the start of November 2017. Utah has outscored Pac-12 visitors by an average margin of 21.7 points per game over those 15 contests. Oregon also happens to be 1-7 against the spread versus opponents that average more than 12 yards per punt return under Mario Cristobal, meaning special teams could play a huge role in this game. If that's not enough, Utah is 36-16 against the spread when coming off back-to-back games of allowing 125 or fewer rushing yards under Kyle Whittingham.
3. The Over has hit in three of Oregon's last four games and it has also hit in each of Utah's last six. Both of these offenses are capable of putting up big numbers, and it's also worth noting that the Over has hit in each of the last three meetings between these two programs. The Over is also 7-1 in this head-to-head series dating back to the start of the 2009 season.
