Oregon Ducks vs Washington Huskies

Where: Alaska Airlines Arena, Seattle, WA

When: Saturday, January 18, 3:45 PM. ET.

The Washington Huskies will be going for their second consecutive win when they take on the Oregon Ducks on Saturday afternoon.

Ducks Trying To Bounce Back From Loss To Washington State

The Ducks had their three-game winning streak snapped by Washington State in their last game and will be trying to bounce back from the loss with a win over the Huskies, which will give them their fourth win in their last five games and third consecutive win over Washington.

Oregon has played well offensively, averaging 78.2 points per game. The team is shooting 48 percent from the field and 39 percent from three-point range. They finished with 61 points in their last game and will need a considerably better performance to give themselves a chance to win this game.

Payton Pritchard led the way for the Ducks with 22 points, five rebounds, and five assists, while Chris Duarte added 15 points, five rebounds, and five steals for the Ducks, who finished the game with only two players scoring in double figures.

Oregon has also played well defensively, holding opponents to 66.9 points per game. They gave up 72 points in their last game and will need to do a better job defensively if they want to pick up the win.

Huskies Going For Third Win In Five Games

The Huskies snapped their two-game losing streak with a win over Oregon State in their last game and will try to keep the momentum going with a win over the Ducks, which will give them their second win in a row and third win in their last five games.

Washington is averaging 71.6 points per game. The team is shooting 45 percent from the field and 31 percent from three-point range. They finished with 64 points in their last game and will need a much better performance to give themselves a chance to win this game.

Isaiah Stewart led the way for the Huskies with 13 points and five rebounds. RaeQuan Battle finished with 11 points and two rebounds, while Nahziah Carter added 10 points and seven rebounds for the Huskies.

Washington has played well defensively, holding opponents to 62.8 points per game. They gave up 56 points in their last game and will need another solid defensive performance if they want to pick up the win.

Rating:

The Huskies have done a great job on the defensive end, holding opponents to 62.8 points per game. However, they will struggle to contain the Ducks, who are averaging 78.2 points per game and will be trying to bounce back from their disappointing performance against Washington State on Thursday night. The Ducks are one of the best shooting teams in the country, especially from three-point range, where they are making 39 percent of their shots. The roles were reversed in their last game with the Cougars making 52 percent of their three-pointers while the Ducks made 33 percent of theirs after going cold in the second half. With the Huskies shooting 31 percent from distance, they will have a hard time keeping up with the Ducks in this game because the Ducks have played well defensively, holding opponents to 66.9 points per game. With the Ducks winning eight of the last nine games between the two teams, Oregon is the best bet here.

Prediction: Oregon Ducks

Full-Game Total Pick

Insiders Status:

Rating:

This is a matchup between two very good defensive teams so don’t expect to see a lot of points scored in this game. The Huskies are averaging 71.6 points per game, but they have struggled in recent games and are averaging 62.6 points per game in their last five games. With Oregon holding opponents to 66.9 points per game, expect the Huskies to stay under their season average in this game. The Ducks are averaging 78.2 points per game, but they have also struggled in recent games and are averaging 69.4 points per game in their last five games. Since Washington is holding opponents to 62.8 points per game, they will be able to keep the Ducks under their season average, which will keep the score under the total.

Prediction: Under

Half-Time Side Pick

Insiders Status:

The Ducks will cover the first-half spread in this game because they have outplayed the Huskies in the first half of their last three games, averaging 36.7 points per game while the Huskies average 27.7 points per game.
