The No. 10 Oregon Ducks and UCLA Bruins will both enter Saturday afternoon’s game with one conference loss, and they both have plenty to play for in the Pac-12. Oregon has one of the biggest wins of the season over the Ohio State Buckeyes, but they lost in overtime to the Stanford Cardinal and after a bye week, they needed a goal line stand to beat the one-win California Golden Bears last weekend. After a loss to the Arizona State Sun Devils, UCLA is coming off consecutive Pac-12 wins over the Arizona Wildcats and Washington Huskies.

The under would’ve been a great play, but the total being driven down a full five points from where it opened leaves not much room for value, so we’ll go with the Ducks to cover the short spread on the road. In a toss-up game, I’ll roll with the team that has the best overall talent, so Oregon will be the play. With this small of a spread, the Ducks are worthy of a moneyline play as well.
