NCAA football wagering fans will have their choice of two highly impressive undefeated teams and leading college football betting online BCS contenders.
Sports-Gambling opened with the Oregon Ducks as a 7 point home favorite over the Stanford Cardinal. Kickoff Saturday night is set for 8:05 PM Eastern and the game can be seen on ABC.
The Stanford Cardinal enters this Pac 10 Conference showdown with a record of 4-0 straight up and 3-1 with the NCAA odds. Stanford mauled Notre Dame last week 37-14 as 4 point road favorites.
The Cardinal has proven to be one of the better balanced teams in college football as they rank 4th in the nation for scoring and 12th in the country for total defense. What is most appealing and impressive about Stanford is their physical play as they have overpowered opponents with an average score of 48-14.
Head coach Jim Harbaugh has a team in his exact image as Stanford is hardnosed, no non sense, and polished. Quarterback Andrew Luck is one of the most coveted in the country by NFL scouts as he has 912 yards passing and an 11/2 touchdown to interception ratio.
The Oregon Ducks will be far and away the toughest challenge that Stanford has faced all season. Oregon is 4-0 straight up and 3-1 with the NCAA football odds. The Ducks beat Arizona State last week 42-31 but failed to get the money as 11.5 point road favorites. Oregon has gone over the total in 3 out of 4 games this year.
The Ducks have a high speed attack that has terrorized opposing defenses and ranks number one in the nation for scoring. The defense is somewhat less imposing as it ranks 23rd in the country.
Quarterback Darron Thomas has made fans forget all about Jeremiah Masoli as he has passed for 822 yards and a 10/3 touchdown to interception ratio. Running back LaMichael James has been lights out with an 8.2 yards per carry average. Oregon has played to an average score of 58-11 this year.
Stanford has covered the last 2 NCAA football wagering matchups in this series and was a 51-42 winner as 6.5 point home dogs last year.
