Oregon vs UCLA Odds - Fresh Prince to provide some points as UCLA upsets Oregon

Posted by Tony Bryant on 10/6/2009 3:49:35 PM
betting on footballThe Oregon vs UCLA odds sets up an interesting Pac 10 matchup. The Ducks are on fire right now but could be in for a wakeup call. UCLA put up a fight against Stanford last week but scored field goals instead of touchdowns, and eventually failed because of that. Oregon can make the bigger plays on offense but UCLA’s defense should be able to contain them. On top of that, online betting cappers should know that Kevin Prince, the Bruins starting quarterback who has been out for a couple of weeks, is on track to return in this game.

Oregon vs UCLA odds: Ducks -6.5

  • WHAT: NCAA Football betting
  • WHEN: Saturday, October 10th – 7:00 PM ET
  • WHERE: Rose Bowl – Los Angeles, CA
  • PICK: UCLA +6.5

Oregon vs UCLA odds maker breakdown: What’s On The Line
The Oregon Ducks (4-1, 2-0) are looking better by the week. Their only loss is to Boise State, who is No. 6 in the nation, and they have outscored their last two opponents 94-6. The Ducks are back in the Top 25 at No. 13 and are among the best teams in the Pac far.

UCLA (3-1, 0-1) lost their Pac 10 opener in Stanford, but this is still an underrated team. Rick Neuheisel’s club is looking for some respect and a win against Oregon would give them exactly that. This is a big game for the Bruins, who want to avoid a 0-2 hole in the Pac 10 standings.

Oregon vs UCLA odds maker breakdown: Offense
The Ducks offense is on fire right now. Between quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, running back LaMichael James and tight end Ed Dickson, the Ducks have a three-pronged spread attack that has carved up California and Washington State in the last two games. They face the best defense they have seen since Week 1 in Boise State so they had better be focused.

Meanwhile, UCLA’s offense has lacked bite over the last couple of weeks, but the return of starting quarterback Kevin Prince should help. He’s not exactly a Heisman Trophy candidate, but he’s a better passer than Kevin Craft and that alone should help the Bruins put points on the board.

Oregon vs UCLA odds maker breakdown: Defense
The Ducks defense has played well over the last few weeks, but it still very much a question mark. Preseason all-conference corner Walter Thurmond III is out for the season and free safety TJ Ward has also missed the last four games. This unit has looked good against Cal, who struggles on the road, and Washington State, who struggles against everyone, but they are still unproven overall.

UCLA’s defense is an underrated group, but they were worked over last week. Look for them to play with some more heart this week. Led by tackle Brian Price upfront, UCLA is capable of wreaking havoc in the backfield. Prior to last week’s outing where Stanford scored 24 points, the Bruins had allowed just 13 points per game. Look for them to get back in that range this week.

Oregon vs UCLA odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries
The Bruins may be without safety Rahim Moore for this contest after he suffered a concussion last week. He should be able to play, but if he can’t, it will thin out the Bruins secondary. NCAA football betting fans should note that he leads the team with five interceptions.

Betting Edge: Oregon

Oregon vs UCLA State betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick
The Ducks have bounced back with four straight wins after their tough loss to Boise State, but the team has been at home for all four games. On the road at UCLA, it’s going to be a different story for the Ducks. Sportsbook odds makers have the Ducks favored, but look for the Bruins ride their defense and do just enough on offense to get the outright win.
