Stanford at Oregon Final Betting Analysis

Often, the home team wins in this exceptional rivalry. It’s tough for me to back the home team in this case because their quarterback, Ducks’ QB Justin Herbert, doesn’t complete a high percentage of his passes. Overall, Herbert completes 56.8% of his passes. His performance against Portland State, over 76%, bumped up the overall completion percentage. Versus Bowling Green, Herbert only completed 47.6%. Against San Jose State, he only completed 47.1%.Herbert must complete close to 70% against Stanford’s defense if the Ducks hope to win this game because the Cardinal figure to shut down Oregon’s rushing attack with 8 men in the box. Once that happens, and the pressure shifts from Oregon’s rushing attack to Herbert, the complexion of the game will change.Stanford should roll to an easy 7 to 10 to possibly even 14 points win.NCAA Football Week 4 Pick: Stanford -2
