The Oregon Ducks and the Stanford Cardinal have clearly established themselves as the two best teams in the Pac-12 Conference over the past few seasons. They meet this Saturday.

Why Oregon Will Win

The college football betting  experts who study the Pac-12 Conference are well aware of Oregon’s place as the two-time defending champion on the West Coast. Coach Chip Kelly swooped into Eugene and quickly elevated a decent program to the top tier of college football. Kelly’s teams are well prepared for big games, and the tempo they establish with a spread option attack is so hard for defenses to keep up with. Oregon has succeeded in large part because it did what Auburn did last year and what Clemson has done this year: Throw so many athletic bodies at an opposing defense that a point of collapse occurs in the fourth quarter. Oregon trailed Stanford by a 21-3 score early in the second quarter of last year’s clash in Eugene. The Ducks wound up winning by a 52-31 score because they completely dominated the final 40 minutes of regulation. Stanford might have controlled the first 20 minutes, but Oregon is regularly able to outclass its foes in the second half. Oregon led Washington in a tricky road game last weekend, taking a modest 17-10 lead to the locker room at halftime. In the third quarter, the Ducks blew the game open against the Huskies and cruised to the finish line for a 34-17 triumph that looked even easier than the final score suggested. This is a team that knows how and when to peak. It is a team that should be trusted in the crucible of big-game competition.

Why Stanford Will Win

When you do your homework and assess your sports bet on this game, you need to realize that as brilliant as Oregon has been over the past few seasons, Stanford has the offense and the tools to combat Oregon’s explosive attack. The Cardinal can play smashmouth ball with running backs Stepfan Taylor and Tyler Gaffney. They will pound the ball between the tackles and exploit Oregon’s defense, which is fast and athletic but not particularly powerful. Then, of course, one must also realize that Andrew Luck is one of the few quarterbacks in college football you want on your team in a must-win situation. Luck will be the No. 1 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, and it’s because of his complete package of skills. The mental game is there, the arm is there, the pocket presence is there, the running ability is there, the field vision is there – nothing about Luck is appreciably deficient. He scored 51 points for Stanford in a nine-point win over Oregon in 2009. Luck might do the same thing this weekend.

Who Will Win

It’s not as though Oregon is deficient; Stanford is simply better and is playing at home. In Eugene, Oregon, the Ducks would be favored. In Palo Alto, California, one should trust Stanford in a matchup of two teams that are both dealing with a number of injuries and limitations.
