Buffs edged by Arizona
Colorado is coming off a 35-30 loss at home to Arizona last weekend to fall to 3-2 on the season. The Buffaloes are 1-1 in the Pac-12 thus far while going 3-2 against the spread and 4-1 with the over.
The Buffaloes have been respectable on offense, but the defense has struggled. Colorado is allowing 31.6 points and 471.6 yards per game this year, including 313 passing yards per game. Offensively, Colorado is putting up 34.6 points and 447 yards per game this year. Steven Montez is leading the offense with 1,463 passing yards and 10 touchdowns while Tony Brown has caught 29 passes for 442 yards and four scores. Alex Fontenot is the team’s leading rusher with 392 yards and four touchdowns.
Oregon staying hot
Oregon picked up another strong win last weekend, defeating Cal at home 17-7 to win a fourth straight game. The Ducks are 4-1 on the season, 2-0 in the Pac-12, 2-3 against the spread and 4-1 with the under.
The Ducks have been one of the nation’s best defensive teams. Since allowing 27 points to Auburn in the opener, Oregon has given up just 22 points combined over their last four games. For the year, Oregon is giving up just 9.8 points and 261.4 yards per game on defense. Jevon Holland is leading the unit with 24 tackles and three interceptions. Offensively, the Ducks are averaging 34.2 points and 447.8 yards per game. Justin Herbert has been efficient at QB, throwing for 1,341 yards and 15 touchdowns with just one interception. Jacob Breeland is the team’s leading receiver with 23 catches for 352 yards and five touchdowns, while CJ Verdell is the leading rusher with 277 yards and two scores. Verdell is questionable to play on Friday due to an ankle injury.
College Football Betting Trends
The Buffaloes are 7-2 with the under in their last nine Friday games and 4-1 with the under in their last five games on fieldturf.
The Ducks are 6-1-1 with the under in their last eight games overall and 3-0-1 with the under in their last four Pac-12 games.
These two have split the over/under over their last six meetings. The total is being set surprisingly high despite Oregon’s defense. Oregon has been very impressive at keeping teams out of the end zone and it’s led their offense to being more about ball control than explosiveness. The Ducks have just 38 points over two conference games and they may be able to find more big plays against Colorado, but the Ducks don’t seem interested in returning to the track meets they used to have. Colorado has some skills on offense and were able to score on a decent Arizona State defense, but I think the Buffaloes hit a wall in Eugene on Friday night.
