Pac-12: No.5 Oregon (-9.5) vs. No.3 Washington (O/U 66.5)
Evan: Struggling to decide whether Washington is a team on the brink of being bad, but is getting lucky, or if they have figured out the secret sauce to winning games any way they need to. This feels like a really strange line for a top-5 matchup, so I think I have to go Huskies out of principle. Washington +9
Justin: Washington beat Oregon once, but I think Oregon is the better team. That’s a large number against a quality opponent, but I’m going to go ahead and pick the Ducks to cover. Oregon -9.5
Ethan: I think Oregon’s weird loss to Washington kind of woke the Ducks up a bit because ever since that game happened, Oregon has been on a tear, just relentlessly beating folks left and right. I love watching these teams play and I think this game will be a lot of fun to keep up with. Oregon -9.5.
John: I’m surprised to see this line where it is. Obviously, Oregon is playing exceptionally well, and Bo Nix is a Heisman contender, but Washington has a great offense of its own. I’m not confident Oregon will even win this one, so 9.5 points seems like a lot. Washington +9.5
Ryan: I think Oregon gets their revenge from the first game that they should not have lost in the first place but his number is too high. It’ll be another close game. Washington +9.5
Andrew: I certainly buy into the idea that Oregon is the actual better team despite the earlier L to Washington, and there’s no question they’ve played far better as of late. But 9.5 is a lot of points against Penix and those weapons. I think we get another classic. Washington +9.5
