Oregon vs. Stanford Spread Prediction

Oregon Ducks vs. Stanford Cardinal, 9/22/18 Week 4 Predictions

In one of the more underrated matchups on the Week 4, the Oregon Ducks will host the Stanford Cardinal in Pac-12 play. Will the Cardinal cover the spread as a small road favorite when these two teams square off at 8:00 p.m. ET on Saturday night?

Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Cardinal are 1.5-point favorites to beat the Ducks. The total, meanwhile, sits at 56 points. As of this writing, 65% of the public betting tickets wagered on this matchup are on the Cardinal.

Stanford Cardinal

Stanford senior RB Bryce Love (undisclosed) is expected to play in Saturday's game against Oregon. Love (5'10/202) sat against UC Davis over the weekend, but by all accounts that was just a precautionary measure. Barring any sort of late setback, look for the senior standout to be back in action against the Ducks come Saturday. When last we saw Love, he was gouging USC for 136 yards rushing and a touchdown in an easy Week 2 victory. Cameron Scarlett would fill in for him if the Cardinal opt to play it safe at the last minute come the weekend.

Oregon Ducks

Oregon junior QB Justin Herbert completed 16-of-34 passes for 309 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 35-22 win against San Jose State. Herbert started quickly, engineering a pair of scoring drives to give the Ducks a 14-0 lead midway through the first quarter. The offensive highlight of the game was a 66-yard connection with TE Jacob Breeland. Herbert still needs to work on his accuracy if the Ducks are going to make noise in Pac-12 play. They open up the conference portion of the schedule when Stanford comes calling next weekend.

Betting Trends

Stanford

The Cardinal is 5-1 against the spread in its last six games overall and 5-1 against the number in its last six games when facing an opponent with a winning record.

Oregon

The Ducks are just 3-12-1 against the spread in their last 16 games coming off a win and 0-4 against the number in its last four home games.

Prediction

Eugene has been hell on most visiting teams but Stanford has actually fared quite well playing in Oregon. Not only is the Cardinal 48-32-1 all-time in this series, Stanford is also 16-13 in Eugene. The Cardinal have won the last two meetings with the Ducks by a combined score of 101-34. David Shaw has had Oregon’s number in recent years and with Love expected to play, I like Stanford laying a small number.
