Scott Van Pelt makes spread pick for Oregon-Washington State game
Scott Van Pelt his made his spread pick for Saturday’s matchup between Oregon and Washington State.
The longtime host of SportsCenter is counting on the Cougars to cover the spread, which is set at +20 in favor of the Ducks.
Despite Washington State’s blowout upset loss to Arizona last week, Van Pelt is still riding with the Cougars, acknowledging that the pick is a little risky.
“They took a massive L at home so that makes this a little bit scary, so does the fact that Oregon’s obviously in a foul mood after that close loss against Washington,” Van Pelt said. “So there’s lots not to like, but we’re still on Wazzu.”
Oregon is coming off a narrow loss to Washington last week that came down to the wire. With their chances of reaching the College Football Playoff damaged by the loss, the Ducks will be coming into the matchup looking for a big win.
Meanwhile, Washington State will be looking to avoid a third-straight loss, but it won’t be an easy task.
