football betsThe Oregon State vs Oregon betting odds will set up the first ever “Civil War” where both teams will have a chance to go to the Rose Bowl. Online betting cappers will see the Ducks’ potent rushing attack go up against the best run defense in the Pac 10, which is why Oregon State has a good chance to win this game. Look for the Beavers to cover and play the Ducks really tight.

PICK: Oregon State +9.5

Oregon State vs Oregon betting odds maker breakdown: What’s On The Line
The Beavers (8-3, 6-2) have quietly had a banner year for Mike Riley. They’re riding a three-game winning streak, and thanks to Oregon’s win at Arizona, the Beavers can now clinch their first Rose Bowl berth in 45 years. Beyond that, it’s also a revenge game for Oregon State, who took a 65-38 beating at the hands of the Ducks last year.

Meanwhile, sportsbook odds makers have put the Ducks (9-2, 7-1) as a 9.5-point favorite for this contest, and the reason they’re a big favorite is because they’ve had more national attention. After stomping USC, the Ducks have been considered one of the best teams in the nation. While Stanford derailed hopes of a bigger season, the Ducks are still in line for a Rose Bowl berth if they can take care of business.

Betting Edge: Even

Oregon State vs Oregon betting odds maker breakdown: Offense
The Beavers offense is hot heading into this game, outscoring opponents 121-45 in their last three wins. Their closest winning margin was 17 points. The offensive line is playing as good as anyone in the nation right now, and with Sean Canfield - who leads the Pac 10 in passing yardage - and the Rodgers brothers making plays, the Beavers have plenty of firepower.

For Oregon, the story has been the Jeremiah Masoli and LaMichael James tandem. The Ducks have a high-powered misdirection offense that has scored at least 42 points per game in their seven Pac 10 contests. Masoli could be a Heisman candidate as he’s made great decisions both rushing and passing. This offense is one of the most explosive in the nation.

Betting Edge: Oregon

Oregon State vs Oregon betting odds maker breakdown: Defense
The Beavers have a very good rush defense, which is allowing just 98.4 rushing yards per game. That will have to be the difference in this contest, because if the Ducks can be forced to be one-dimensional, they won’t do as much damage (see Arizona). This is a very talented defense - maybe the best unit the Ducks have seen all year.

The Ducks defense isn’t a stiff, though, and they’ll present some challenges. The Ducks are ranked 27th nationally in total defense, which means they’re a capable group. Even so, they’ve had some bad outings, including giving up 41 points to Arizona, 51 to Stanford, and 36 to Purdue.

Betting Edge: Oregon State

Oregon State vs Oregon betting odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries
The Ducks will be without linebacker Josh Kaddu this week, and also cornerbacks Willie Glasper and Walter Thurmond III, who have been out for the season for quite some time.

Oregon State is fairly healthy and fairly fresh coming off a bye week.

Betting Edge: Oregon State

Oregon State vs Oregon betting odds breakdown: Outlook and Pick
The Ducks are the known brand name here, but the Beavers have a great shot to pull the upset. They’ll want revenge after getting embarrassed in last year’s Civil War, and while playing at Autzen Stadium is never easy, having two weeks to prepare could give the Beavers a big advantage at this point in the season. The Beavers’ defense will slow down the Ducks just enough while the Ducks secondary will be exposed. College football betting fans should expect this to be a tight contest, so take the Beavers with the points.

BLAKE’S PICK: Beavers +9.5
