Why Bet on Oregon
The Ducks are 3-1 after an OT loss to Stanford last week. The tough OT loss came after Oregon dominated the stat sheet. The Ducks out-gained the Cardinal 524-398 in total yards, out-rushed Stanford 178-71 and held a 36 to 24 advantage in time of possession. Moreover, Oregon outscored their first three opponents (all wins) by an average score of 52-20.
Why Bet On Cal
The California Golden Bears are 3-0 and ranked for the first time since the 2015 season as they face their first Pac-10 opponent this week.
Cal has beaten UNC, BYU & Idaho State and is coming off a bye week. Defense is winning games for the Golden Bears. Cal is second in the nation with seven INTs, one of which was returned for a touchdown.
Oregon Vs Cal Betting Predictions
The head-to-head record favors Oregon. The Ducks have won eight of the last nine meetings straight up while going 7-2 against the spread during that span. But I am backing Cal in this tilt. The Golden Bears are at home and have had an extra week to prepare for this game.
