Ducks, Wildcats put on a classic
No game this week was better than the Pac-10 meeting between Oregon and Arizona. A lot was at stake and the game was an instant classic. Oregon was a 5-point road favorite according to online sportsbook SPORTSBETTING.com. 70 percent of the public bets went with the Ducks, but Arizona held the lead for most of the game and Oregon managed a touchdown in the closing seconds to force overtime, where the Ducks prevailed by three points in double overtime. The win was big for Oregon, but the 3-point margin of victory was big for betters who had Arizona plus the points.
Cardinal runs out of gas
Stanford seemed to be on a war path as of late heading into Saturday’s game with California. 78 percent of public bets went Stanford -7, but the Bears put on an offensive showcase, tallying 477 yards as a team while Shane Vereen rushed for 193 yards and three touchdowns in replacement of the injured Jahvid Best as California won 34-28 to pick up its second-straight win over a ranked opponent.
Orange sour Rutgers day
Rutgers seemed like a sure thing, giving up 10 points at Syracuse. 88 percent of public bets went with the Knights, but Rutgers never got off the bus seemingly, as the Orange dominated from the start in a 31-13 win over the Knights. Syracuse racked up 424 yards of offense while Rutgers had just 130. Rutgers was the most popular public bet on Saturday, and left a lot of people disappointed.
Tigers get taken to the limit by Virginia
Clemson was a 21-point favorite in its home finale against Virginia on Saturday. 71 percent of the public bets went with the Tigers, but the Cavaliers gave the Tigers all they could handle in a 34-21 win for Clemson. Clemson was unable to sustain drives early in the game while Virginia found a way to stay close, and in the second half, neither offense could find much success, giving the Cavaliers a surprising cover.
