Betting Oregon Ducks
The Ducks are road dogs per top sportsbooks for College Football. They opened the season with a 3-0 SU and 2-1 ATS record. But the Ducks have lost straight games to the Oregon State Beavers as 13-point chalk. As well as to the Cal Golden Bears as nine-point faves.
Oregon’s formerly scheduled game against Washington on December 12 was canceled. That left the Ducks without an opportunity to play for a berth in the Pac-12 championship game. Turns out in they made it there anyway, so yeah.
The Ducks will attempt to salvage an otherwise disappointing season. Oregon rebooted itself as a more muscular team in 2019. They had one of the nation’s top defenses. They allow just 329.6 total yards and 15.7 points per game in their 12-2 SU and 8-6 ATS season. The Ducks defense took a step or 17 back in 2020. They allow 419.8 total yards and 28 points per game.
“A lot of excitement about the opportunity, at the same time thoughts and prayers to everyone in Seattle,” said Ducks head coach Mario Cristobal, referring to the Huskies’ coronavirus outbreak. “You want to settle everything on the field … [this is] the solution (the Pac-12) could come up with.”
Oregon’s starting QB Tyler Shough is the conference’s highest-rated passer. He has completed 91 of 143 passes for 1,389 yards and 11 TDs with just four picks.
Betting USC Trojans
The Trojans are home favorites according to top sportsbooks. USC enjoyed an exciting rally last Saturday over the UCLA Bruins. Not only did they win the game but they covered the spread too. The Trojans were down 21-10 at the half and 35-23 going into the fourth quarter. But they scored three fourth-quarter TDs to win the game as 3.5-point road faves.
Kedon Slovis had 344 passing yards and five passing TDs. In just five games this season, Slovis has posted 1,601 passing yards with 15 touchdowns and just four picks. He is completing 70.3% of his passes. Kedon Slovis has passed for a league-best 1,601 yards and 15 scores. That includes the five on Saturday. He is 149-of-212 passing on the year.
The Trojans could have maybe played their way into playoff competition over the course a full season. They will have to settle for this chance at a Pac-12 championship on Friday night. USC is 5-0 SU and 3-2 ATS heading into the game.
“We control what we control, and that’s us,” USC head coach Clay Helton said. “We’re just happy to be in this opportunity, and we’re going to make the most of it. We’re going to have a great plan, and we’re going to execute that plan because we’re going to do the things that we do well.”
Oregon Ducks vs. USC Trojans NCAAF Pick
This pick might be different were this game in Oregon. But the Ducks haven’t fared well on the road this season. Stopping this high-caliber USC offense with their poor defense is not going to be an easy task. Thus, take the Trojans and the points.
