College Football Lines at Online Sportsbooks -- Oregon Controls Path to Playoff Bid

The Oregon Ducks are ranked #4 in the country as far as the latest college Playoff Rankings are concerned. What that means is that it is quite likely they will earn a spot in the special four-team playoff for the national title, provided they don’t lose again. On Saturday night they will visit the Utah Utes in Salt Lake City in a Pac-12 game that could be more problematic than they bargained for.

Here are some of the details courtesy of BetAnySports USA Online & Live Betting Sportsbooks:

Matchup: Oregon Ducks at Utah Utes

Date/Time: Saturday, November 8 – 10 PM ET

TV Coverage: ESPN

College Football Lines at BetAnySports: Oregon -9.5

Total: 60 points

At present, Marcus Mariota, the quarterback who has been called “special” by more than one NFL scout, is not only at the top of the heap in terms of passing efficiency in the latest NCAA ratings, with 26 touchdown passes and only two interceptions, he is also the current favorite to win the Heisman Trophy in the odds at BetAnySports.

He is also going to likely find himself under a lot of pressure on Saturday night. The Utah pass rush is the most formidable in Division I football, racking up 39 sacks. They terrorized UCLA’s Brett Hundley earlier in the year, sacking him ten times. So they are no joke. The Ducks went through a few nightmares with their offensive line, and started to take off again offensively (after a loss to Arizona) when left tackle Jake Fisher returned to the lineup. He helps in protection, but the tackle on the other side, Matt Pierson, will miss this game, and BetAnySports online Sportsbooks customers know that won’t make it any easier for the OU cause.

Can they continue on their current football pointspread roll, which is now 4-0-1 in the last five games? Maybe, but let’s keep in mind that Utah has covered seven out of eight games, and they have undoubtedly proven to be a mentally-tough team. The question is whether they can produce enough offensively. Travis Wilson was given the quarterback job by coach Kyle Whittingham, and the 6’7″ signal-caller certainly throws better than his backup, Kendal Thompson, who makes plays with his feet. But he had only 57 yards through the air last week in the 19-16 overtime loss at Arizona State.

The key guy for the Utes is running back Devontae Booker, who has put together a string of 100-yard games and must be counted upon to help this team move the chains and keep the Oregon offense off the field. Will that be easier said than done? Well, there could be room to move against the Ducks, who are ranked 68th against the run, and 103rd in total defense.
