NCAA football wagering fans have their choice of two capable teams in desperate need of a win to get back on track for a college football betting online bowl berth.
Kickoff Saturday night is set for 6:35 PM Eastern and the Oregon State Beavers opened as 4 point home favorites over the Arizona State Sun Devils at Sports-Gambling. The game will be telecast on Fox Sports Net.
The Arizona State Sun Devils flirted hard with an upset of the Oregon Ducks but failed to deliver in the end although they did get the money in a 42-31 loss as 11.5 point home dogs with the NCAA odds. Arizona State has a record of 2-2 straight up and 3-1 against the spread and has gone over the total 3 out of 4 times this season.
ASU’s most impressive performance was two weeks ago when they lost at #11 Wisconsin 20-19 as 11.5 point dogs. ASU had an extra point blocked late in the game that would have likely sent the game into overtime.
As is usually the case with a Dennis Erickson coached team the passing attack is one of the best and ranks 5th in the country. Quarterback Steven Threet has 1228 yards passing but a sloppy 8/7 touchdown to interception ratio.
Deantre Lewis has emerged as a dangerous threat with a 9.6 yards per carry average while Cameron Marshall is averaging 5.6 yards per rush. The defense ranks 61st in the nation for points permitted.
The Oregon State Beavers have a record of 1-2 straight up and 2-1 with the NCAA football odds. Last week Oregon State lost a tough game at #3 Boise State 37-24 as 17.5 point road dogs for their third consecutive matchup that went over the total. Oregon State has also lost on the road to #5 TCU in a brutal non-conference schedule.
Surprisingly enough offense has been the problem for the Beavers as they rank 113th in the country as new quarterback Ryan Katz has struggled. The defense has also been bad and ranked 108th. Brothers Jacquizz and James Rodgers are among the most exciting players in NCAA football wagering and key assets.
