UCLA vs. Oregon 2022 Expert Betting Predictions

Both UCLA and Oregon are playing great football. The difference is that Oregon doesn’t have a signature win. The Ducks have beaten Eastern Washington, BYU, Washington State, Stanford, and Arizona. Stanford and Arizona are two of the worst teams in the conference. Washington State is okay but they’re in the Pac-12’s upper echelon.

UCLA has a couple of signature victories in the win column. The Bruins beat Washington and then took down Utah. Both wins happened in Pasadena, but we shouldn’t discount how well UCLA played to beat both the Huskies and Utes.

Bottom line in this one is Oregon should win, but they shouldn’t come close to beating UCLA by the spread. The Ducks will struggle for the victory, which means 3 points is the most to lay on Oregon. UCLA at +6.5 is the play.
