NCAA betting odds disappointment is large for the Oregon State Beavers but they can make up for all up it with an upset win over Oregon with the NCAA betting lines.
The Oregon State Beavers will host the Oregon Ducks on Saturday with a telecast on ABC set for 3:30 PM ET. Sports-Gambling opened with Oregon as a 15.5 point favorite. If Oregon wins they will earn a berth in the BCS Championship Game in January. Oregon State must win to secure bowl eligibility.
The amazing and sensational Oregon Ducks have a college football betting record of 11-0 straight up and 6-4-1 against the spread with 8 of their games going over the total. Oregon has failed to cover its last 3 games as they are now becoming an overlay due to their popularity with the gaming public.
Oregon is coming off a 48-29 home win over a solid Arizona team and yet they still couldn’t bring home the bacon as 20.5 point chalks. The Ducks are the top scoring team in college football with 50.5 points per game while the defense ranks a better than publicized 15th for points allowed.
LaMichael James is a leading Heisman Trophy candidate with 1568 yards rushing and 20 touchdowns while quarterback Darron Thomas has passed for 2355 yards and been a phenomenal weapon in his own right. The Ducks have gone over the total in 4 of their last 5 games.
Oregon State has a college football gambling record of 5-6 straight up and 6-4-1 against the spread. The Beavers are coming off a lethargic 38-0 debacle at Stanford for their 3rd loss in 4 games as they were likely peaking ahead to this one. Oregon State ranks a poor 95th on offense and 84th on defense.
If they have a shot in this one they will need the combination of emotion, energy, a near perfect performance on both sides of the line and Oregon making mistakes. All of that could keep them within the number and perhaps with a puncher’s chance at ruining their arch rival’s dream season.
This series has gone over the NCAA betting odds total in 8 consecutive games and the dog has paid out in 4 straight between these two teams.
