Bet The Oregon Ducks Line at +1 In The Alamo Bowl Because…
Nobody can stop Oregon’s offense. Now that Eastern Washington transfer QB Vernon Adams is healthy, Oregon’s offense is once again unstoppable. The Ducks won their final 6 games by outscoring their opponents. They beat Stanford 38 to 36 on the road, USC 48 to 28, and ASU 61 to 55 on the road. Oregon also beat Washington 26 to 20 showing that at times, they can play a slow it down game. With Adams at the controls, it’s going to be difficult for TCU’s defense to stop Oregon from scoring touchdowns.

Bet The TCU Horned Frogs at -1 In The Alamo Bowl Because…
TCU’s offense can play with Oregon while the defense is slightly better than Oregon’s. The offense averages 564.3 yards and 41.7 points per game. The defense allows 396.7 yards and 26.1 points per game. TCU has the ability to run and gun with Oregon if the game turns out that way. Or, TCU could try and be more conservative on offense and hope that their defense can get a couple of stops against the Ducks.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
TCU’s ability to play either way, the Horned Frogs beat Texas 55 to 52 but also lost to Oklahoma 29 to 30 this season, gives them a slight advantage in this game. This should be a true pick game with TCU coming out on top via a safety, run back for a pick 6, or a 2-point conversion. Take TCU but expect it to be close.
