Three things you need to know before betting on Utah-Oregon: 

1. Utah is coming off an impressive 38-7 victory over Oregon just two weeks ago, but the Ducks are still going to feel good about their chances here. The last time these two met on a neutral field was in 2019, when Oregon earned a 22-point win as a 6.5-point underdog. The last time the Utes beat the Ducks anywhere outside of Rice-Eccles Stadium was in 2015, and they're going to have a much harder time dominating this game without their home fans. 

2. Under head coach Mario Cristobal, Oregon is 5-3 both straight-up and against the spread when playing in games with a line of +3 to -3. In that time, the Ducks are also an impressive 9-2 straight-up and 6-5 against the spread when revenging a loss against an opponent. 

3. The Under is 8-5 in games in which Oregon has played as an underdog under Cristobal, and it's also 6-9 when the Ducks have faced opponents that average at least 425 yards per game in that span. On top of that, the Under is 6-13-2  when Utah is coming off back-to-back games of allowing 75 or fewer rushing yards under head coach Kyle Whittingham. The Under also hit when these teams met on November 20.
