Arizona vs. Oregon Spread

With the Arizona vs. Oregon spread set at Oregon -19.5, 85 percent of those betting on the spread were backing the Ducks.  This could prompt oddsmakers to push the line over 20 points when all is said and done.  The Wildcats will look to play spoilers here against number one and undefeated Oregon, and Arizona is likely to provide the Ducks with a mighty big challenge.

The Scouts Edge predicts an Oregon win by 11 points, well below the current spread of 19.5.

From The Scouts Edge:

The Wildcats will hang tough thanks to the experience of Foles and their advantage in the trenches.  However, the Ducks will have a frenzied home crowd behind them and James will be able to rip off a few big runs.  We also expect Maehl to get back on track with a few big plays downfield and Oregon’s special teams advantage to play a big role.  Arizona must think twice about kicking the ball to Oregon RS Cliff Harris, who has provided a spark at times.  In the end, Oregon comes away with a hard-fought victory and keeps its BCS title hopes alive. 

Gambling911.com is here to provide a word to the wise.  Arizona has covered 4 of the last 5 in this series, including last year when they lost Straight Up to Oregon by three points.
