Oregon Season Odds

After a very successful season in 2008, the Oregon Ducks look to build off that production and maybe compete for a national title this year.

Oregon will have a new head coach this year, as Chip Kelly will be the headman and the offensive coordinator for the Ducks in 2009. Last year, Oregon went 10-3, including 7-2 in the Pac-10 and also beat Oklahoma State 42-31 in the Holiday Bowl.

Under Kelly’s guidance last season, Oregon led the Pac-10 with 484.85 yards of total offense and 41.92 points per game. Kelly will have quarterback Jeremiah Masoli (1,744 yards), running back LeGarrette Blount (1,002 yards) and tight end Ed Dickson (508 yards) back under his command in 2009.

Defensively, the Ducks will get safety T.J. Ward back. Ward racked up 101 tackles for Oregon’s defense last season and will once again be joined by defensive end Will Tukuafu (7.5 sacks) and cornerback Walter Thurmond III (5 interceptions).

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com, the Ducks have opened as 35/1 long shots to win the 2010 BCS National Championship. But Oregon is one of the more intriguing teams entering the new season, especially considering they play in a very winnable (outside of juggernaut USC, that is) Pac-10 Conference.

The problem is that no team in the Pac-10 returns fewer starters than Oregon, who have a massive rebuilding project going on both lines. Still, Kelly’s offense was explosive last year and with a couple of early wins, maybe the Ducks can surprise in 2009-2010.
