NCAA Football Betting Odds:
The Ducks swim into this weekend’s action sporting a 3-1 record fresh off a 38-31oss to No. 7 Stanford. There was a lot of blame to go around on the day but the game-losing play was made by Justin Herbert. In overtime, the Ducks got the ball with excellent field position. Ultimately Oregon needed a touchdown to tie Stanford and force further overtime after their defense gave up a touchdown in extra play. Eventually Oregon drove the ball into the red zone and were facing 1st and goal on their opponent’s 10. After three passes fell incomplete, the Ducks were facing the last play of the game despite not gaining any yardage. With an opportunity to force added time, Justin Herbert failed to deliver instead turning the ball over. Now the Ducks look to bounce back against another nationally ranked opponent. The NCAA football betting odds don’t like their chances on the road however.
Players to Watch: Justin Herbert (1,186 passing yards, 13 TD, 5 INT), CJ Verdell (314 rushing yards, 2 TD, 5.3 AVG), and Dillon Mitchell (337 receiving yards, 1 TD, 20 REC).
California Golden Bears
The Golden Bears are undefeated so far this season, proudly sporting their 3-0 record. All in all, Cal hasn’t really been put to the test by a challenging opponent. Obviously Oregon looks to be that challenge this Saturday. Going by the numbers, Cal might have a hard time keeping up with the Ducks high-paced offense. Right now the Golden Bears are averaging 30.0 points per game, which is significantly less than the 46.5 that Oregon gets. However, California does have the advantage on defense. Seeing as how they only give up 19.3 per game while Oregon allots 24.5, Cal might have an easier time getting things going this weekend.
Players to Watch: Chase Garbers (454 passing yards, 6 TD, 2 INT), Patrick Laird (147 rushing yards, 1 TD, 2.9 AVG), and Jordan Duncan (127 receiving yards, 2 TD, 9 REC).
