Oregon vs. Utah Odds: Utah Given 57.4% Chance of Winning Pac-12 Championship

The Pac-12 Conference Championship Game will take center stage in the college football betting world on Friday night and so will Oregon vs. Utah odds. For the first time ever, the title game will be played in Las Vegas, Nevada. The spectacular venue that is Allegiant Stadium will host the Oregon Ducks and Utah Utes with a spot in the Rose Bowl at stake. Of course, these two teams clashed two weeks ago in Salt Lake City, so the latest Oregon vs. Utah odds are heavily influenced by that showing. After the Utes dominated that one, the Ducks will be looking to exact some revenge on Friday night. Despite the lopsided outcome of the first meeting, the Oregon vs. Utah odds have Utah installed as a very short favorite ahead of the Pac-12 title game.

Oregon Ducks Preview

It’s safe to say that the head-to-head matchup against Utah two weeks ago is a game that Oregon would rather soon forget. The Ducks were outgained by nearly 100 yards in that first meeting. They were also dominated in time of possession stemming from an inability to control the line of scrimmage on either side of the ball. Considering the numerous high-quality players that adorn Mario Cristobal’s offensive and defensive lines, the nature in which Oregon lost the battle in the trenches was quite surprising. For the Ducks’ offense to stay on schedule and be productive, establishing a ground game is necessary. Oregon had just 62 yards rushing in Salt Lake City two weeks ago. Meanwhile, the defense allowed the Utes to pile up 208 yards on the ground.

Many were skeptical as to how Oregon would rebound after the blowout loss that all but doomed their College Football Playoff aspirations. The Ducks answered the bell in impressive fashion, jumping out to an early lead over Oregon State and holding off a late comeback to win the Civil War and Pac-12 North Division. While the final margin of victory was only nine points, Oregon was never truly threatened as college football betting favorites last week. Both running back Travis Dye and dual-threat QB Anthony Brown posted over five yards per carry. The duo combined for over 180 yards rushing and three scores in a solid bounce-back effort offensively. Similar success on the ground would be huge in the Ducks’ bid to win the Pac-12 championship.

If Oregon is going to come out on the right side of the latest Oregon vs. Utah odds, they'll need a much stronger showing than the first time around.

Utah Utes Preview

Any Utah hangover from the massive win over Oregon lasted all of one quarter. It took the offense a bit to find its rhythm, but the Utes were able to take down Colorado by a 15-point margin to conclude an undefeated season on their home field. Unfortunately, Utah will be relegated to a neutral site for Friday night’s college football betting contest. That said, expect the Runnin’ Utes faithful to make their presence felt inside Allegiant Stadium as Kyle Whittingham’s squad tries to capture the school’s first Pac-12 championship. 

Defense has been Utah’s calling card all season. The Utes finished out the regular season allowing the fewest yards (325.9) and second-fewest points (21.5) in the Pac-12 on a per-game basis. The front seven certainly came up huge in the first head-to-head against Oregon two weeks ago. Special teams were also a big part of that game, particularly on a punt return touchdown just before halftime. Each of Utah’s top two RBs, Tavion Thomas and T.J. Pledger, averaged over 4.5 yards a pop against the Oregon defense. Of course, since taking over under center a few games in, Cameron Rising has proven on numerous occasions that he is capable of making big plays through the air when the Utes need them.

The point spread for the Pac-12 Championship Game has bounced back-and-forth between Utah -3 and -2.5 throughout the week leading up to the game. As soon as the market shifts the needle one way, buy-back comes on the other side. Many college football betting analysts find it curious that the spread mirrors the first meeting between these teams given how Utah dominated that game.

While the point spread has teetered back-and-forth, the total for Friday’s Pac-12 Championship Game has experienced a decisive move to the under. An opening line of 60 has fallen two points to 58. 

Oregon vs. Utah Pac-12 Championship Game Betting Picks and Prediction

While a trip to the Rose Bowl (and perhaps more depending on other conference championship game results) await the winner, one could make the case that Oregon has a whole lot more to prove in this matchup. It would have been one thing to lose a close game in Salt Lake City two weeks ago. Instead, the Ducks were thoroughly embarrassed. Revenge will be firmly on the mind for Oregon come Friday.

Much like the first matchup between these teams, whichever side can establish control at the line of scrimmage in order to both run the ball effectively on offense and stop the other team’s rushing attack will have an inside track to victory. The 201 rushing yards Oregon allowed to Utah in the first meeting were nearly 80 more than the 124.3 they surrendered per game this season. On the contrary, the Utes’ 63 rushing yards allowed two weeks ago was half of the 126.6 they have given up on a per-game basis. Expect some regression to the mean in both directions on Friday. A more competitive game should come along with it.

Oregon vs Utah Prediction: Under 58 (-110) and Lean Oregon (bet at +3 or better)
