Opening Line & Total: Ducks -15 & 65.5

Oregon tries to extend its win streak to five when it hosts Arizona State on Saturday night, but the Ducks may be missing the nation’s top rusher, LaMichael James.

The Oregon RB suffered what appeared to be a dislocated elbow in last week’s win over Cal, and although it seems doubtful James will play, his school has not ruled out the possibility of James suiting up. The Ducks have quality backups, but this is certainly not the same potent offense without James in the lineup. Arizona State’s defense has performed very well since allowing 30 points to Missouri in OT. In the four games since, the Sun Devils are allowing just 18.3 PPG, 112 rushing YPG and have forced 17 turnovers! Oregon has zero takeaways in its past three games. The Ducks have beaten the Sun Devils in six straight meetings (5-1 ATS), outscoring them 254 to 125. However, ASU gained 597 yards in last year’s meeting and the 42-31 final score would’ve been much closer if the Sun Devils didn’t commit seven turnovers. Oregon’s defense is even worse this year, surrendering 405 YPG (83rd in nation) and allowing 719 passing yards in the past two weeks. ASU QB Brock Osweiler, who didn’t play in last year’s game, should be able to keep his team within striking distance with his team’s air attack.

Arizona State is racking up 37.7 PPG in Pac-12 play, winning all three conference games by at least 15 points. Osweiler has thrown for 280 passing YPG, 13 TD and 6 INT this season, which includes 325 yards, 3 TD and 0 INT at Utah last week. Six ASU players have caught at least a dozen passes this year with Jamal Miles leading the school in receptions (27) and Gerell Robinson leading in yards (403). The senior Robinson caught seven passes for 94 yards in last year’s 42-31 loss to Oregon. Special teams have also helped ASU’s offense, as Miles is tied for the second-best punt return average in the land, averaging 19.3 yards per return. The team is also averaging 25.4 yards per kick return, good for 17th in the country. Defensively, ASU has been sound, ranking 24th in the nation in both scoring (19.5 PPG) and sacks (2.7 per game). The Sun Devils are allowing 169 rushing yards on 3.8 YPC in the past two games.

Oregon’s 50.2 PPG ranks second in the nation and its 540 total YPG is fifth most in the land. James has three straight 200-yard rushing games, and he also rushed for 244 yards and four scores in two career meetings with ASU, so his absence will be felt. Although, the team’s top reserve RBs, De’Anthony Thomas and Kenjon Barner, have combined for 365 yards on 52 carries (7.0 YPC) and five touchdowns. QB Darron Thomas is also capable of running the football with 613 career rushing yards (4.9 YPC) and eight touchdowns. Thomas has been much more effective with his right arm, throwing 15 TD and only two interceptions this season. Special teams will also suffer a hit without James, who, like Miles, is als
