Bet The Oregon Ducks +3 Because…
Oregon man-handled Virginia in its 44-26 win on Saturday as quarterback Dakota Prukop passed for 331 yards and three touchdowns and underrated running back Royce Freeman rushed for 207 yards and two additional scores.
Olympic hurdler Devon Allen added four catches for 141 yards and a touchdown, which he celebrated by pretending to clear hurdles in the end zone. Defensively, Oregon is allowing 27 points and 390 yards per game.
Bet The Nebraska Cornhuskers -3 Because…
Nebraska laid a huge, 52-17 smackdown on Wyoming as quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. passed for 377 yards and three touchdowns while Keiron Williams returned one of Josh Allen’s five interceptions for another score. Armstrong Jr. set a new school record for career touchdown passes in the win.
"I couldn’t do it without those guys," Armstrong said. "They did a great job making plays — a bunch of catches and yards after contact. We have a lot of season left, and I’m excited about those guys out wide."
Defensively, Nebraska is allowing just 13.5 points and 297 yards per game, but the Cornhuskers know Oregon presents a different test for them.
"Oregon, they’re no joke," said Jordan Westerkamp, who caught two of Armstrong Jr.’s three touchdown passes. "They’re a top program in the entire nation. This will be our first big test. We have to take them extremely serious and have a great week of practice because they’re going to come ready to play.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
I’m not real high on Nebraska because of Tommy Armstrong’s often inconsistent ways, but I’m also not quite as high on Oregon as I have been in the past.
Having said that, I’m going to back Nebraska to get the win and ATS cover by the slimmest of margins, mostly because they’re playing at home and Armstrong Jr. looks more polished and consistent than he ever has.
While Oregon has gone 22-5 ATS in their last 27 road games, the Ducks are also a winless 0-4 ATS in their last four games and will be facing a Cornhuskers team that has gone 5-2 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall.
The Ducks don’t have a very good defense right now and I expect Nebraska to score their fair share of points because of it.
