Why Bet on Nevada?

Nevada opened with a 34-31 home upset of Purdue. Brandon Talton kicked a 56-yard field goal as time expired. The Wolf Pack rallied from a 17-point deficit to beat a Big Ten school for only the second time ever. Talton, a walk-on playing his first collegiate game, said his previous long in a game was 47 yards. The 56-yarder was the third longest in Nevada program history. The other two: Damon Fine (58 yards in 2001) and Tony Zendejas (58 in 1983).

Carson Strong became the first freshman quarterback to start a season opener for Nevada since 1998. He completed 30 of 51 passes for 295 yards and 3 touchdowns. Nevada tied the game with 52 seconds left on Strong’s 20-yard pass to Elijah Cooks. Cooks played a huge role in Nevada’s season-opening victory, hauling in a career-high seven receptions for 60 yards and tying his single-game best with two touchdowns.

With 32 seconds remaining, Purdue quarterback Elijah Sindelar threw an interception to defensive back Daniel Brown. The senior Brown recorded two interceptions in the game for the first time in his career.

Nevada trailed Purdue 31-14 at the 6:19 mark of the third quarter, tying its second-largest comeback since 1996. The Wolf Pack also overcame a 17-point deficit against Boise State in 2010. Nevada leads the Mountain West with a +5 turnover differential, after recording two interceptions and recovering three fumbles against Purdue while never giving the ball away. The Wolf Pack were the only team in the nation in the opening week to post a +5 turnover margin.

Jay Norvell has faced one Pac-12 opponent in each season he has coached at Nevada, and is 1-1 against the conference as he enters his third season. He was victorious in his last meeting against the conference, knocking off Oregon State 37-35 at home in 2018. His game against No. 18 Washington State in his first season at the helm is the only ranked opponent he has faced until this game.

Why Bet on Oregon?

The Ducks lead the all-time series vs. Nevada 6-1, with the Wolf Pack’s only victory coming in their first-ever meeting in 1947. All but one match up has taken place in Eugene.

Oregon blew last week’s game in Texas against No. 16 Auburn, losing 27-21. After barely converting a fourth down with a run in the final minute, Bo Nix threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to Seth Williams with 9 seconds remaining to win it for the Tigers. Auburn, which trailed 21-6 late in the third quarter, delivered another early blow to the Pac-12. They beat the Pac-12’s highest-ranked team in a season opener for the second year in a row – it was Washington last year.

Nevada vs Oregon should be an easy victory for Ducks.

In the loss, Justin Herbert extended his streak of consecutive games with a passing TD to 29 straight games, longest in the country. He also moved into fifth in school history with 569 career completions, passing Chris Miller (1983-86). Herbert’s 28 completions were his most since 2016 at Utah. Oregon scores 20-plus points for the 30th straight time in a non-conference game. Jevon Holland became the first FBS player since 2007 with 130 punt return yards and an interception in the same game.

Oregon owns a 14-game win streak in home openers entering this one. During that streak, the Ducks are averaging 57.1 points per game. The Ducks have scored a touchdown in 25 consecutive quarters in home openers dating back to the third quarter of the 2012 game against Arkansas State. The only time Oregon failed to score 40 points during the streak came in 2009 when the Ducks knocked off Purdue, 38-36. The Ducks have outscored their opponents in the last 14 home openers by an 800-285 margin. Oregon has scored more than 70 points twice, 60-plus points six times and 50 or more points nine times.
