ASK THE TRADER 🤔

October 9, 2023

The biggest matchup of the Week 7 college football slate belongs to the Pac-12. Oregon and Washington are both ranked in the top 10, and this is the first time two Pac-12 teams that are 5-0 or better have squared off since 2004 😮.

Washington is laying 3 points at home to Oregon and there has been interesting action so far in this showdown. It’s an even split on the tickets, with each team getting 50%. The Huskies, however, are dominating the handle at 95.0%.

We asked trader Wyatt Satre for his thoughts on the early Washington money 💰 and why the spread hasn’t moved yet off Washington -3.

ASK THE TRADER: With home-field advantage around 2.5 points, the market thinks Washington is about a half point better than Oregon. We saw other books move from 3 to 3.5 earlier this morning, but the number quickly got bet back down to 3 and that’s why we’ve stayed at 3 despite the early sharp action on Washington.

Questions about Oregon’s defense could be the reason behind the big bets on Washington -3. While both teams have two of the best offenses in the country, Oregon’s defense has yet to play a top-40 offense in terms of points per drive.
