Huskies open as 16.5-point underdogs against Ducks

The opening lines for next weekend’s games are out, and Oregon has been set as a 16.5-point favorite over UW for Saturday night’s contest at Husky Stadium.

UW has been a good bet against the spread this year, going 6-2, the same as its straight-up mark, covering against Arizona this week when it was anywhere from a 4-8-point favorite and won by 11.

The line may seem high to UW fans, but maybe they’ll like this omen — the last time the Huskies were this much of an underdog at home was the USC game in 2009 when the Trojans were a 19-point favorite and lost to the Huskies 16-13.

In other lines on Pac-12 games next weekend:

— USC is a 21-point favorite at Colorado Friday night;
— Arizona State is a 13.5-point favorite at UCLA Saturday;
— Cal is a 9.5-point favorite over visiting WSU Saturday;
— Arizona is a 1.5-point favorite over visiting Utah Saturday;
— and Stanford is a 21-point favorite at visiting Oregon State Saturday.
