Oregon is a tough team to figure out. Every time it seems like the team has turned a corner with their transfer-laden roster, preparing for a deep NCAA Tournament run, they drop a game to a far inferior opponent, setting them back.

Take Saturday, for example, when the team dropped a home game to lowly Cal, allowing them to go on a 24-0 run in the first half. The Ducks now restart the cycle of building some momnetum once again, this time hosting a mercurial Washington State team that also hurt their tourney standing with a loss at home to Arizona State over the weekend.

Here are the odds between two desperate PAC 12 foes from WynnBET Sportsbook:

Washington State vs. Stanford Prediction and Pick

Oregon's loss to Cal is hyper concerning for a team that can't afford anymore poor losses to their résumé. This is an advantageous spot for the Ducks as both teams played on Saturday and game planning for the Ducks matchup zone is difficult enough with proper rest, however Wazzu has just one day in between games, making this a tough ask for the Cougars.

We should see a max effort from the Ducks after the lackluster one on Saturday but I'm concerned about laying this many points with them after the spread was bet from -4 to -5 as of this writing. Oregon is outside the top 300 in free throw percentage this season, shooting 67% as a team. Meanwhile, the Cougars are a top 30 offensive rebounding team while the Ducks are outside the top 250.

If Wazzu is able to clean the offensive glass and create second chance opportunities they are more than capable of staying within two possessions. I do think Oregon gets it done, but I'm not interested in laying this many points now, I'd rather use the home favorites in a moneyline parlay.
