College Football Betting: Stanford Hosts Ducks in PAC-12 Battle

Posted by Mickey on November 14, 2015 in

While the Oregon Ducks (6-3) have been a safe college football betting picks in previous years, they have become a disappointment this season. On top of that, they are now facing a tough rival on Saturday evening when they travel south to take on the Stanford Cardinal (8-1), who have won all eight of their games since losing that season opener against Northwestern. Stanford does have playoff hopes, but they have to keep winning. The next obstacle in their path is a home game against the Oregon Ducks. The Cardinal are favorite to win by 10 points; since 2014, they are 11-2 straight up and 9-3-1 against the spread when they are a double-digit favorite. Stanford did win and cover last week, when the rolled over Colorado on the road, 42-10. Stanford has won seven of the eight games in their current streak by at least 10 points, including a 56-35 home win against UCLA and a 41-31 road victory at USC.
