Wild on Sports
NCAA Cash-In Thursday
#3 Oregon Ducks @ #5 Stanford Cardinal
Line: Oregon -10, O/U: 62

The Match-Up:

The premiere match-up of the week comes to Thursday night as the #3 ranked Oregon Ducks travel to Stanford to take on the #5 ranked Cardinal. Oregon enters the game as arguably the best team in the country at 8-0 and in the top tier in both total offense (55.6 ppg) and defense (16.9 allowed). They are led by Heisman front runner Marcus Mariota and an offense that has below every defense it has faced off the field. That offense has been so lethal in fact, that it has led the Ducks to covers in 7 of 8 games, all of which were well into double digits.

For Stanford the season has not been nearly as dominating despite a very strong 7-1 record. While they have played down to their opponents (as evident by the mere 4-4 record ATS) red shirt sophomore QB Kevin Hogan has proven that he shines in big games. He boasts a perfect 7-0 record in games against ranked teams.

Interesting Trends:

Oregon is 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
Stanford is 6-0 in their last 6 as a home underdog.
The total has gone OVER in 7 of the past 8 meetings.

The Verdict:

Based on the efforts in recent weeks, Stanford is lucky to only have one loss. Oregon, on the other had has been dominant in every game. We just know what is going to show up for the Ducks. Is the home crowd going to be enough to help the Cardinal keep the game close? We're going with what we know. This could be the defining moment on the Heisman resume for Mariota.
