Houston vs Oregon Prediction & Pick

There's no denying that Houston has one of the best defenses in the country. The Cougars simply smother opposing teams, allowing only 46.0 points per game (No. 2 in NCAA) on a shooting mark of just 28.4% (No. 2 in NCAA). Expect more of the same from head coach Kelvin Sampson's team here.

Oregon doesn't have the depth to make offensive adjustments and keep up with the likes of Sasser and Jarace Walker on Sunday. It's worth pointing out that the Ducks have also already shown they are vulnerable at home, losing to UC Irvine by a score of 69-56. This one has blowout written all over it.

Final Score Prediction: Houston: 74 | Oregon: 60
