At the onset of the season, there were a lot of questions about Oregon. Washington was the favorite to repeat as Pac 12 North champions. Summing up the Ducks proved to be the best of the North. Head coach Mario Cristobal has done a tremendous job at recruiting and stabilizing the Oregon program. However, the Ducks proved not quite ready for prime time when it comes to being of playoff-caliber. Utah has been one of the nation’s top wagering values for College Football betting Games. The Pac 12 South Division champions have an old school fundamental appeal.
