The news that Jake Locker will miss this weekend’s game against the Oregon Ducks caused a mad scramble in the betting world. The Washington Huskies opened the week as a four touchdown underdog to the Ducks and the line has moved considerably in the last few hours as bettors scramble to place bets on Oregon in what seems to be a very friendly line.
Since news of Locker’s rib injury trickled out, the line has moved five points in Oregon’s favor. The Huskies are now 34.5 point underdogs in Las Vegas. It will surely continue to move in the Ducks direction as bettors keep picking the Ducks.
With a redshirt freshman making his first career start at Autzen Stadium this week, it will be interesting to see how far the line moves in Oregon’s favor. It just goes to show how much of an impact Locker has on this Washington Husky tam.
