NCAA Week 8 Betting Odds

The Oregon Ducks and Washington Huskies play, while Arizona St. and Utah also face off in PAC-12 action.

The AP Top 25 poll received a shakeup this week after some major results in the SEC. Most surprisingly, the Georgia Bulldogs lost 20-17 as 21-point home favorites hosting the South Carolina Gamecocks. The Gamecocks were down to their third-string quarterback after Ryan Hilinski left the game in the third quarter with an apparent leg injury, but the Bulldogs failed to take advantage. Georgia fell seven spots from No. 3 to No. 10 in this week’s rankings.

Meanwhile, the LSU Tigers shot up from No. 5 to No. 2 with their 42-28 win at home over the Florida Gators. Joe Burrow went 21-for-24 with 293 passing yards and three passing touchdowns in the win, taking over as the new favorite to win the Heisman Trophy in the process.

Pac-12’s ranked teams will square off Saturday

While the SEC had a chance to shuffle its power rankings last weekend, the Pac-12 will have that chance this weekend. All four of the Pac-12’s ranked teams, including the 5-1 Oregon Ducks, Arizona State Sun Devils, and Utah Utes, will be in action against each other this Saturday. The Pac-12 conference is hoping that one of these teams eventually emerges as a one-loss conference champion to push for a playoff spot in January.

The Oregon Ducks are 13-2 SU and 12-2-1 ATS in their last 15 games against the Washington Huskies. Since losing their season-opening game to the Auburn Tigers, the Ducks (-3) have gone 5-0 SU and 3-2 ATS over their last five games and have outscored their opponents 195 to 25 over that stretch.

Washington is 5-2 SU and ATS this season, and both of their losses came in games they were heavily favored to win. The Huskies were a 13.5-point home favorite in their 20-19 loss to California and 13-point home favorites in their 23-13 loss to Stanford.

Arizona State and Utah (-13.5) both enter this game with matching 5-1 SU and 3-3 ATS records. Utah’s one loss came as a 3.5-point favorite on the road against USC while Arizona State’s came at home as an 8-point favorite to the Colorado Buffaloes.

The Sun Devils are 6-2 SU in their last eight games against the Utah Utes. In the last two games between these two Pac-12 South rivals, Arizona State has cashed in with outright upsets as a 7.5-point underdog at home in 2018 and as a 10-point underdog in Utah in 2017. Arizona State won both of those games by double-digits.

Michigan gets shot at redemption in Happy Valley

The Michigan Wolverines have bounced back from an embarrassing 35-14 loss on the road to the Wisconsin Badgers back in Week 4 with a 3-0 SU and 2-1 ATS record over their last five games. Michigan will attempt to redeem itself with a big win this Saturday as 9-point underdogs on the road against the Penn State Nittany Lions.

Penn State is 6-0 SU and 4-2 ATS through the first half of the 2019 regular season. The Nittany Lions are 1-4 SU and ATS in their last five games against Michigan.
