NCAA College Football Week 10 Picks & Predictions: Oregon vs. Washington Betting Odds: If you are an Oregon Duck fan, is there any concern over this week’s PAC-10 college football picks match-up during week ten of the NCAA college football season? #1 Oregon (8-0) hosts Washington (3-5) and Vegas odds makers have installed the Ducks as -35 point college football picks favorites at home.
Oregon is playing football at another level, outscoring opponents by an average of 55-18. The lowest the team has scored in any college football picks contest this season was 43 in a 20-point NCAA picks victory over Washington State. Oregon has also defeated two ranked teams, 52-31 over then #9 Stanford and 53-32 last week over #24 USC. Running back LaMichael James has rushed for more than 1,200 yards and quarterback Darron Thomas has thrown for more than 1,800 yards, 21 passing TDs, and another 311 yards rushing.
Washington has defeated USC and Oregon State this college football picks season but, in the past two weeks, they have lost 85-14 to ranked Arizona and Stanford. The Huskies are lugging around the nation’s 106th-ranked defense, giving-up an average of 34 points per college football picks contest, or three touchdowns less than Oregon’s season average. Why would a five-touchdown underdog have any hope? Quarterback Jake Locker and running back Chris Polk are talents and there is one more thing – in 2007, Washington defeated #1 USC 27-24, despite being +20 underdogs.
Still, Oregon should have no problem handling the Huskies, yet -35 points seems a lot to cover, but is having Washington cover the Vegas spreadB a sucker bet? Possibly, though the Huskies could cover the Vegas spread in this college football picks contest, if only by a point or two.
