Odds courtesy of 5Dimes.
The Ducks continue to be a college football juggernaut. And they may have the most gain from the expansion to a four-team college football playoff to determine the national champion. Oregon has been close to the BCS Title but was never able to break through. Regardless, this program is 47-6 over the past four years and will continue to be a national power.
Marcus Mariota is back and the junior all-conference quarterback will put up absolutely ridiculous numbers again this year in the country's No. 2 total offense. He is one of nine returning offensive starters - including all five linemen - and the Ducks should just overwhelm opponents with points in bunches. The key, as always, will be the defense. Oregon has just five starters back and have to replace three guys in the secondary. But they were No. 13 in scoring defense and No. 21 against the pass last year.
Oregon has a huge game with Michigan State on Sept. 6 that will have massive national implications. Fortunately for the Ducks that one will be played in Autzen where the Ducks are 33-2 the last five seasons. Oregon will also host a key game against Stanford. In fact, Oregon's season may come down to two road games - at UCLA on Oct. 11 and at rival Oregon State in the Civil War game on Nov. 29.
I can't see Oregon losing two games this year. Their offense has a chance to be the best in school history. And that is really saying something. Facing Michigan State and Stanford in Autzen is a huge advantage and I see the Ducks winning both. I do think that either UCLA or Oregon State can knock off the Ducks. But I don't see this squad being upset during the regular season and I don't see them losing more than one of those four big games.
I know it is a square play. But I would play Oregon 'over' as long as the juice isn't greater than -140.
