Week 4 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a Pac-12 opener between the No. 15 Oregon Ducks and Washington State Cougars. The Ducks have rebounded after an opening week massacre vs No. 1 Georgia to score 101 points the last two games including a 41-20 win at ranked BYU last week.
Meanwhile, Washington State is undefeated and coming off a 38-7 route of Colorado State. That followed a 17-14 road win at Wisconsin, and the Cougars have been one of the better early-season stories of the season around transfer QB Cameron Ward.

No. 15 Oregon enters this contest as the road favorite on the moneyline and the spread. The line has bumped up from -5.5 early in the week to -6.5.

Oregon vs Washington State Prediction & Pick
Oregon was ranked No. 5 late last season when the Ducks beat the Cougars 38-24 in Eugene as a 14-point favorite. For the second straight season, the Washington State defense is much improved having allowed just 17, 14 and 7 points in three games.
Both teams are a bit undervalued with Oregon bettors still thinking of the Georgia domination of the Ducks opening week. But Oregon has the speed and talent edge, especially on the perimeter along with a top-rated offensive line. If Ducks QB Bo Nix can keep it clean like the last two games with a 7 TD to 0 INT ratio, Oregon can get this road win by double digits.
Final Score Prediction: Oregon : 31 | Washington State: 20

Credit to Washington State's strong defense thus far. The Cougars have recorded 14 sacks and 31 Tackles for Loss already this year with 7 takeaways. But the Wazzu offense will need more punch against Oregon.
Recall the Cougars had just 360 yards at home against Idaho and 13 minutes less of possession time in a 24-17 win opening week as a 28-point favorite. Then at Wisconsin, the Cougs managed just 10 first downs and 253 yards in a 17-14 win despite 17 minutes less possession time than the Badgers.
