UCLA vs Oregon Prediction & Pick
This is always a big game for former Oregon head coach and current UCLA head coach Chip Kelly. Now his Bruins are unbeaten as they travel to Autzen for just their second road game this season. The Ducks have won 5-straight games since the opening week loss to No. 1 Georgia. Both teams are 4-2 ATS and averaging more than 500 yards per game on offense including more than 200 rushing yards per game.
Oregon has dominated the recent series against UCLA with victories in 9 of the last 10 meetings (6-4 ATS) including last year when they spotted the Bruins a 14-0 lead before rallying for a 34-31 win. Still, UCLA is a solid 4-1 ATS as an away underdog the last three years including three outright wins. Their last visit to Eugene in 2020 was a 38-35 loss as a +17 point underdog.
Oregon has dominated three opponents at home this season by an average of 224 yards per game while going 3-0 SU/ATS with each win by at least 18 points. Added potential rain (80%) in the forecast could cause some problems for UCLA's finesse offense, but the Bruins are still so strong and balanced with the top-scoring offense in the Pac 12 at 41 points per game.
Final Score Prediction: UCLA: 38 | Oregon: 34

UCLA vs Oregon Best Bet
All NCAAF betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
Both quarterbacks have passed for more than 1,500 yards, and each is a duel threat. Oregon QB Bo Nix has 12 passing TD's and 8 rushing touchdowns while UCLA QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson has 15 and 4 including 7:1 TD-INT ratio the last two games against stronger Pac 12 entrants Utah and Washington in outright underdog wins.
Oregon's defense has not performed as expected despite projected stronger linebackers and defensive backs. The Ducks have allowed 5.9 yards per play (YPPL) against FBS opponents while UCLA has allowed just 4.8 YPPL with their stronger defensive line to rank top-20 in the country and best in the Pac 12.
Following UCLA's 42-32 win over Utah and then last Saturday's thrilling 43-42 Utah win over USC, this could be another Pac 12 shootout but worth waiting on the weather situation and rain as the total may drop.
Bet: UCLA +6.5 (-115)
