The Stanford Cardinal and the Oregon Ducks put on a show last year. They’re poised to deliver even more fireworks this time around.

Why To Bet On Stanford

The Cardinal destroyed Oregon’s defense in the 2009 meeting between these two schools. Stanford rolled up 505 total yards and scored over “half-a-hundred” points in a 51-42 win over the Ducks. The duo of quarterback Andrew Luck and Heisman Trophy runner-up Toby Gerhart were too much for UO defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti’s charges. Stanford moved the ball at will and outpaced a lethal Oregon offense in a shootout of the highest order. Stanford also controlled the ball for nearly 38 minutes, an essential aspect of any game against Oregon. The Cardinal’s ability to impose their running game against Oregon’s front seven stood out as the biggest single ingredient of a wild win. This year, Gerhart isn’t around, but Stanford is continuing to employ a distinctly physical style of football mixed with vertical play-action passing. Stanford is loaded with talent, a reality indicated by last Saturday’s 37-14 win against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The Cardinal pounded the Fighting Irish and frankly left a ton of points on the field. Stanford had to kick four straight field goals in succession, yet still managed to win by 23 in one of college football’s more daunting environments. If Stanford can max out, it will not only play this game close; it will win outright.

Why To Bet On Oregon

The Ducks have a remarkable ability to score in a lightning-quick manner. Oregon has had only three possessions this season that have lasted over four minutes. Quarterback Darron Thomas has picked up the offense with a fluidity few expected after the departure of former quarterback Jeremiah Masoli to Ole Miss. Oregon uncorked a 35-point second half against a solid Tennessee Volunteers defense on Sept. 11. The Ducks then hit multiple big plays of 40 yards or more in a 42-31 win over Arizona State Sun Devils on September 25th. This team can score from any place on the field at any time. Few teams in America have a home-run threat at running back the way Oregon does with LaMichael James. The Ducks, under coach Chip Kelly, know how to exploit opposing defenses and, since Stanford has spent this season playing awful offensive teams – UCLA, then Wake Forest, and then Notre Dame, none of whom can move the ball with any appreciable consistency – Oregon is going to enjoy a decided advantage against the slower Cardinal defense. Oregon’s best offensive performance will give Stanford’s offense zero margin for error on Saturday night in Eugene.

How The Game Will Play Out

The 93-point shootout staged last year at Stanford could very well be replicated in this game. All in all, Oregon should enjoy a comfort zone on offense. Moreover, the Ducks have been tested more than the Cardinal have this season. Oregon should win the game outright. However, Stanford has the offensive chops and balance to keep this game close and play it under the number. Oregon 45, Stanford 42. Buckle up.
