Colorado vs Oregon 2019 College Football Week 7 Odds & Game Analysis

Why Colorado Buffaloes are a good bet +20 ½?

Colorado isn’t a great team, but they’re not nearly as bad as so many college football handicappers believed they be. The Buffaloes already have a couple of signature wins on the season. They beat Nebraska 34-31 as a 4-point dog on Sep. 7. On Sep. 21, they beat Arizona State 34-31 as a +7.5 road dog.

Colorado mustn’t beat Oregon on Friday night. If they just keep it close, they’ll score a victory against the spread. With so many points to work with the Buffs might do that.

Why Oregon Ducks are a good bet -20 ½?

The Ducks should be undefeated. They blew a big lead against the Auburn Tigers in Week 1. Since then, they’ve beaten Nevada, Montana, Stanford, and Cal. Oregon hopes to get back into the College Football Playoff discussion. To do so, they must not just beat inferior teams like Colorado. They must dominate inferior squads like the Buffaloes. Oregon will be revved up to score at will while trying to keep Colorado from scoring in double-digits.

Colorado vs Oregon College Football Final Betting Analysis

Oregon is the superior team, but the Colorado Buffaloes are a hard-charging lot. The problem Oregon has with covering the spread is that Colorado can move the football. The Buffs average more points than the Ducks do, 34.6 to 34.2.

Not just that, but the Buffaloes, easily, are the top offensive team Oregon has faced this season. Colorado is so strong offensively that they put 34 points on the scoreboard against Arizona State, who might have the best defense in the Pac 12.

Oregon won’t lose. But, 20 ½ points are way too many. Colorado will move the football. They’ll score over 10, maybe, even, over 20 against a Ducks’ defense that’s looked good versus offensively challenged Stanford and Cal in their last two contests.
