The Oregon Ducks are currently sitting atop the PAC 12 Conference, and with just 6 games left to play in the regular season, they have to be considered the favorites to stay there. They still have some tough games to play coming down the stretch, and it all begins on Saturday when the Ducks take a trip to the Maples Pavilion to face the Stanford Cardinal. The odds for this one will go live on Saturday morning at MyBookie.ag.
How to bet Oregon Ducks Vs Stanford Cardinal Game and TV Info
When: Saturday, February 13, 4 PM EST
Where: Maples Pavilion,
TV: PAC 12 Network
The Ducks have some tougher games ahead of them in their remaining few weeks, but they have to be careful not to overlook the Cardinal. Oregon already have a win over Stanford this season, but they know things will be a little more difficult when playing on the road.
Why bet on the Oregon Ducks
It has not been a very good week so far for the Ducks (20-5, 9-3), as they suffered a devastating 83-63 loss at the hands of California to get things rolling. It was a poor display to be sure, but it was also horribly out of character for the Ducks. This makes you feel that I was just one of those nights as opposed to a sign that the Ducks might be ready to fly south. Prior to that loss, Oregon had gone through a stretch of games where they won 9 out of 10, including 3 games on the road. The last time these two teams met, it was the Ducks who came away with a comfortable 71-58 win. A similar type of performance should yield a pretty similar result here. Oregon are averaging 77.5 PPG, and are giving up 68.0 PPG.
Why bet on the Stanford Cardinal
If I’m being totally honest here, it is tough to find reasons why the Cardinal (11-11, 4-7) would be able to get a win in this one. They were seriously outclassed in their last meeting against the Ducks, and they are coming into this one on a 4-game losing streak. One positive that they are bringing to the table is that they do have a win over a ranked team on their resume this season, as they took out Utah to begin conference play. That is the only success that they have had over ranked opponents this season, and that makes them a serious underdog versus the Ducks. Stanford are averaging 69.5 PPG, and are giving up 69.4 PPG so far this season.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
The confidence of the Ducks took a serious knock with the loss to California this week, but they are more than good enough to bounce back from that loss against a struggling Stanford team. I expect a pretty comfortable win for the Ducks here.
