#19 Colorado vs #10 Oregon, Prediction, Odds & Picks: Ducks Roll at Home cover


The Colorado Buffalos will finally have a true test, as they go on the road to take on PAC-12 opponent, the #10 Oregon Ducks.

Coach Prime and company are coming off an incredibly emotional comeback victory against in-state rival Colorado State in 2OT.

The biggest storyline is the absence of Travis Hunter.

The number 1 DB/WR for this Colorado team is our for a few weeks, and he will miss the Buffalos first real opponent and conference challenge.

Let’s break this one down, and see if Colorado has a chance to cover on the road against the Ducks.

Nix vs Sanders, a PAC-12 QB Battle

Colorado Oregon Prediction Odds Picks

The Auburn Transfer, Bo Nix is off to a hot start. The Ducks are 3-0, scoring 58 points per game, and Nix is off to a career best, 77.6 completion percentage.

Things are clicking for the Ducks, whose defense is also holding opponents to less than 16 points.

But they are facing the Buffalos offense. Bookmakers opened this game at 20.5, and bettors quickly bought the Ducks up to a three touchdown favorite.

While Colorado did get the win, they were very exposed and clearly missed Hunter on both sides of the ball. Arguably they should have lost that game, credit to them for an incredible comeback, however against a team like Oregon, I could see them struggling.

Give me the Ducks to put them in their place, and Colorado to feel the void of Hunter on offense and defense.

The Pick: Oregon -21 (-110) Bovada

NCAAF Player Prop Bets

Shedeur Sanders over 307.5 Passing Yards (-130)

Colorado Oregon Prediction Odds Picks

This guy’s passing yards is almost always an auto bet at this point.

At 307.5, this is way too low, and I’ll jump on this and watch it move 15-20 yards before kick off.

Sanders is currently 2nd in the FBS with 1,251 passing yards through three games. Quick math, that’s over 400 yards per game.

As a three touchdown underdog, it’s hard to imagine a game where Sanders doesn’t throw the ball at least 40 times. He’s done so 47, 42, and 47 times in previous games.

He’s cleared this number in three straight this season, and I think we see a third straight 325+ passing yard game from Sanders.

Even with Hunter out, this Buffs team will air it out, even to RB Dylan Edwards, and Sanders will soar over this prop.
