The Ducks are favored by 6.5 points for this weekend’s matchup with Washington State in Pullman, according to FanDuel.

Oregon has won three straight in the series, but before that Washington State was victorious in four consecutive games. Oregon has had trouble in Pullman. But Bill Connelly’s SP+ model sees the Ducks clearing another hurdle in Week 4.

The predictive model is calling for a 30-21 Oregon win this weekend.

Oregon and Washington State are both 2-1 against the spread this season. The over has hit in two of the Ducks’ three games. The under has been the play in all three of Washington State’s games. FanDuel has set the total at 57.5.

The Cougars present a third test in four weeks for the 15th-ranked Ducks. Georgia was a different animal, but a week ago Oregon faced a top-25 offense — according to SP+ — in BYU. It cleared that hurdle with relative ease, jumping out to a 38-7 lead as the Ducks shut down BYU at the line of scrimmage.

Washington State brings a top-25 defense into the matchup, per SP+. The Cougars generate takeaways and negative plays at a strong rate, but they haven’t yet faced an offense quite like the Ducks. The line of scrimmage will be the decisive battleground. Oregon’s offensive line helps power a unit that ranks 10th in SP+. Wisconsin and Colorado State are both outside the top 50 in offensive SP+.

“These guys have gone and won some tough games and been in some tough battles, obviously getting the chance to go play a team like Wisconsin and playing the way they did is really impressive,” said coach Dan Lanning. “They won some tough games. I think they do some unique things offensively and defensively.

“Coach (Jake) Dickert has done a great job up there of being aggressive on defense and creating some negative plays. They’ve had some really explosive plays on offense. They have a quarterback that can extend plays and does a good job of getting the ball downfield, but is also dangerous with his legs.”

Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. PT on FOX this Saturday.
