A big North Division showdown in the Pac-12 highlights Saturday night’s betting board at BetAnySports with the Stanford Cardinal going on the road as slight favorites against the rival Oregon Ducks. Game time from Eugene on ABC is set for 8 p.m.
Stanford continues to climb the national rankings with a straight-up 3-0 start that includes a 17-3 victory against USC in its Pac-12 opener as a 4.5-point home favorite. Last Saturday, the Cardinal beat UC Davis 30-10, but they could not cover the closing 30.5-point line at BetAnySports as favorites at home. Heading on the road for the first time this season, they are 2-4-1 against the spread in their last seven road games. The total has stayed UNDER in four of their last six games on the road.
Heisman Trophy hopeful running back Bryce Love is expected to be back in the lineup on Saturday night after sitting out last week’s game with an undisclosed injury. He rushed for 136 yards and one touchdown on 22 carries in the Week 2 win against USC. The Cardinal defense has allowed a total of 23 points combined in its first three games.
Oregon has jumped out to SU 3-0 start, but it has not been able to cover as a heavy home favorite in any of the three games. Last Saturday, the Ducks outscored San Jose State 35-22 as 43-point favorites with the total staying UNDER the closing 70.5-point line at BetAnySports. They are now 8-16 ATS in their last 24 games played at home.
With an average of 51.7 points through its first three games, Oregon has already put up some big numbers throwing and running the ball. Justin Herbert has completed 46 of his 81 passing attempts for 840 yards and 12 touchdowns against four interceptions. The Ducks have a trio of players with at least 120 yards rushing led by CJ Verdell with 199 yards rushing on 39 carries.
Oregon has been able to score points at will in its first few games, but I am banking on Stanford slowing them down just enough on defense to cover the two points on the road as the slight favorite.
