A pair of Pac-12 teams in trouble will try to bounce back on Sunday night when the Oregon Ducks head to the Maples Pavillion to take on the Stanford Cardinal. With both teams off to subpar starts, it will be interesting to see which team wants this conference win more tonight. 

The Ducks are 5-4 and 0-1 in Pac-12 play after losing their conference opener to Arizona State 69-67 in OT. While the game was close, it was a tough loss for this team as nine-point favorites on their home court. Stanford also lost their conference opener against the Colorado Buffaloes 80-76 that dropped their record to 4-3 and 0-1 in conference play. The silver lining is that Stanford covered as 4.5 point underdogs.

Oregon vs. Stanford Prediction and Pick

The Oregon Ducks appear to be closer to a break-out game but still are having issues putting teams away. They were ranked No. 15 to start the season but haven’t been playing like it at all and continue to take some hard-to-swallow losses.

Their last game out against Arizona State saw the Ducks blow a four-point lead with just over a minute lest to play. Arizona tied the game with just five seconds left and then eked out a win in overtime. Franck Kepnang led Oregon with 17 points off 7-of-9- shooting but it just wasn’t enough to avoid the upset.

The Ducks are also failing to cover games and are just 2-6 ATS and are on an 0-2 ATS losing steak. The Major issue that the Ducks have is their offense that is averaging just 68.3 points per game. It’s worth noting that the Ducks have been without their best player in Eric Williams and his status for tonight remains unknown. Stanford is also having issues covering spreads and is just 1-5-1 with that only cover coming at the beginning of November as big favorites over Valparaiso. 

This is a tough game to predict with two teams that are underperforming and the uncertainty surrounding William’s status. If he plays I think this is a clear win for Oregon who, on paper, is a much better team. With this game a pick’em, I’m going with my guy and the better overall team with Oregon here. Even without Williams, I think they get it done in this conference game.

Pick: Oregon -105 to Win
