NCAA Over / Under Win Total wagering for team Oregon Ducks

Jul 26, 2012 3:00 AM

Oregon Ducks

(Note: GT sports editor Mark Mayer will assess the 35 college football teams on the LVH sports book list of OVER / UNDER win totals leading up to the Aug. 30 season openers. Today: Oregon).

Oregon Ducks Over / Under 10½ wins

Pleading the case:

• The Ducks lost their starting QB Darron Thomas and standout RB LaMichael James from last year’s Rose Bowl team.

• Oregon would have to beat both Southern Cal and Stanford in order to reach at least 11 wins.

• The Ducks are saying they will redshirt their top QB prospect, raising the possibility for a platoon system or one transferring.

• Oregon is not the preseason pick to win the Pac 12 for the first time in several years. Southern Cal gets the nod.

• The Ducks are now an elite program, no longer the hunter but the hunted. ASU, Cal and Oregon State could pull the upset at home.

Prediction: UNDER. How many 11-1 teams can there be? We’re figuring a loss to USC and another slipup that isn’t Stanford.
