Oregon is unranked in the AP national poll, but is still ranked 24th in the coaches poll, but really the Ducks’ ranking doesn’t even matter after they got blown out of the water in their 62-20 Week 4 loss at home against Utah. Oregon never came close to covering the spread as a 10-point favorite as quarterback Jeff Lockie struggled in completing just 10 of 20 passes for 139 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions.
The Oregon Ducks fell out of AP Top 25 for first time since 2009. Samuel L. Jackson had some thoughts about that. http://t.co/qCcZb8Rbg9

The Ducks allowed Utah signal-caller Travis Wilson to throw for 227 yards and four touchdowns while rushing for another 100 yards and one score. Oregon was held to just 4-for-13 (31%) success on third downs while losing the turnover battle at -3.
Colorado won their third straight game by spanking tiny Nicholls State 48-0 despite failing to cover the spread as an insane 54.5-point home favorite. Quarterback Sefo Liufau completed 13 of 21 passes for 227 yards and one touchdown while running back Phillip Lindsay rushed for 113 yards and two scores on 17 carries.

A whopping 68 percent of the betting public likes Oregon to win and cash in and I’m jumping on the Ducks’ bandwagon this weekend despite the fact that the Buffs have a better SU record right now.
Oregon is 4-0 ATS in their last four meetings against Colorado and a near-perfect 8-1 ATS in their last nine conference games. On the flip side of the coin, Colorado is just 2-6-1 ATS in their last nine games following an SU win of more than 20 points.
While 62 percent of the betting public likes the Over for this week 5 matchup, I disagree, seeing as how three of the last five meetings, including last season, playing well under the set Total for this matchup. The Under is 7-2-1 in Oregon’s last 10 road games and 5-2 in Colorado’s last seven games.
