NCAA Football Betting – Golden Bears Aim To Slow Down Ducks

College Football oddsNCAA football betting players have watched Oregon rip through everyone in their path this season, but they face a potentially tricky trip to Berkeley to face California, who is a much different team at home than they are on the road. Can the high-flying Ducks cover a massive NCAA football betting spread?

The No.1 Ducks (9-0, 6-0) were shut out in the first quarter, then dropped 18 points in the second and didn’t look back in a 53-16 rout at Washington, racking up 522 yards of offense. LaMichael James ran for 121 yards and three scores, while Darron Thomas was 24-of-33 for 243 yards and a touchdown, while adding 89 yards and two more scores on the ground for the Ducks, who overcame a couple of turnovers. Defensively, the Ducks got the Huskies off the field, stopping them on 14 of 16 third-down conversions. The Ducks are now averaging over 54 points a game, and they look as unstoppable as anyone in the country.

The Golden Bears (5-4, 3-3) won their first road game in seven tries with a 20-13 victory at Washington State, outgaining the lowly Cougars 383-194. Shane Vereen had 112 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns, while Brock Mansion (which is in the running for ‘best sports names of the year’) was 12-of-24 for 171 yards and a couple of picks for the Golden Bears, who are truly awful away from home. The Golden Bears have scored 50 points or more in three of their four home games, while scoring more than 14 points just once in five road games.

Betting services have the Ducks as a 19.5-point NCAA football betting favorite, even though they’re only 2-3 both SU and ATS in their last five trips to Berkeley. Cal actually has the No.12 defense in the country, and they’re going to keep Oregon from romping, even though the Ducks will win the game by at least 10 points. The Golden Bears need to keep up with Oregon’s speed, while plays are running, and the pace at which Oregon runs plays. We think the Golden Bears have the energy to hang with Oregon longer than anyone else has, but like everyone else, they’ll eventually run out of gas because the Ducks have to be the best-conditioned team in the country. They just tire teams out and cause confusion with their offensive schemes, but Cal is going to be a stiff test for them, especially in Berkeley. We’re going to go with Oregon straight up, but if you’re feeling like taking a chance, take Cal to go against the sports betting spread.
