Why San Jose State is a good bet +41?

As bad as San Jose State is, and they’re very bad, 41 points is a lot. The Spartans almost assuredly should keep the score within the spread even if Oregon blows them out. If San Jose State scores their 19 points average, the Ducks must score 60 to just push. That’s asking a lot even from an offense as good as Oregon’s.

Why Oregon is a good bet -41?

The Ducks average 60 points per game. Oregon’s defense only allows 19 per game. The spread pretty much implies that both teams score their averages. The difference is that San Jose State allowed a Division II team like UC-Davis to score 44 against them in a 44-38 loss. Oregon’s way better than UC-Davis, meaning that if San Jose State hopes to stay close to the Ducks, they must score much more than 19 points while Oregon could easily eclipse 70 against the Spartans.

San Jose State at Oregon Final Analysis: Ducks Quack to an Easy Cover

41 points is a lot, but San Jose State wasn’t good enough to beat a Division II school. How will San Jose State hang with a Pac-12 team that averages 60 points per game? Oregon beat Bowling Green 58-24 in their first game, and then they took apart Division II Portland State 62-14. The Ducks could eclipse 70 in this game while San Jose State might, if they’re lucky, score 10. Yes, giving up 41 points is always scary, but when it comes to San Jose State versus the Oregon Ducks, it’s a matter of siding with the home motivated squad over a road team that knows they’re just there for the sacrificial slaughter. Oregon covers.
