Betting on the Oregon Ducks
- Regular Season Record: 9-3
- Spread: -14
- Moneyline: -560
- Over/Under: 75
Of the last five games the Ducks have played, they won three. While their season has been good, the only two losses in they have suffered took place very recent: the first against the Washington Huskies 37-34, and the second one against the Oregon State Beavers 34-38, which was also their last game.
Those two losses were not just another one, given that against the Huskies their quarterback, Bo Nix, who returned against Oregon State Beavers, got injured and was seen limping at the end of the game. According to the latest reports, his ankle injury is reportedly healed, although his recovery has happened very much around the time of the Holiday Bowl. Will it be able to perform at his best?
Betting on the North Carolina Tar Heels
- Regular Season Record: 9-4
- Spread: +14
- Moneyline: +430
- Over/Under: 75
North Carolina was shaping up to be one of the best teams of the season, but it lost its last three games. The first of this disastrous series of lost games was against Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets by 21-17, which meant an unexpected setback that seems to have affected the team’s spirit greatly, since they then lost to NC State Wolfpack (30-27) and against the Clemson Tigers (39-10).
Their quarterback, Drake Maye, is their top performer, and he threw 4,115 yards and scored 35 touchdowns this season, while rushing for 653 yards and seven touchdowns. His performance is so good that rumors indicate that two universities are willing to invest millions to bring him to their teams.
Let’s hope the stars align so we can enjoy both quarterbacks on the field. Without a doubt, these two teams are the best in all of college football, and thanks to their performances during the season, Oregon and North Carolina averaged 39.7 and 35 points scored per game.
This Oregon vs North Carolina game will be an evenly matched final, but Oregon’s defensive line has done better all year round, and while they lost their last game, they have shown they can pick themselves up after a stumble. Therefore, at JefeBet we believe that Oregon will win.
Prediction: Oregon Ducks and Under wins.
