The playoffs are the goal for every team entering the college football season, but for many, that dream is one that is way too lofty. Generally speaking, we all know that it will be the Power 5 conferences that will be represented in the final four. With 5 conferences and just 4 spots, at least one of them is going to miss out. Before getting to the playoffs, though, winning a conference championship is the first goal. Do that, and there is a good chance that you will be in that elite group.
The exception here might well be the PAC 12, as that conference is very much trending downward right now. It’s still early in the season, but there are already serious doubts that any team can make it out of there and into the final four. Many people like the Oregon Ducks to win the PAC 12, but with a loss already under their belts, they need to be perfect the rest of the way if they have designs on the postseason.

Why bet on the Montana Grizzlies?
One of the great things about the early part of the college football season is that we get to see some of the smaller teams on display. Sure, it’s usually against a Power 5 Conference team with a total beating being administered, but there is something kind of cool about seeing teams from conferences that don’t usually get a ton of airtime.
We are getting that this weekend, with the Montana Grizzlies of the Big Sky Conference heading into Oregon to face the Ducks. Montana are 2-0 to start the season, but that perfect record will come to an end here. In lined games, the Grizzlies are 0-5 SU in their last 5, with the same record in road games, as well as being just 1-4 ATS in those outings.

Why bet on the Oregon Ducks?
The Oregon Ducks won’t admit it, but they are probably still sitting wondering why they are not coming into Week 3 with a perfect 2-0 record. They started the season with an admittedly tough game against the Auburn Tigers. It was one that they looked to have totally in hand before blowing a lead in the 4th quarter and losing 27-21.
They needed a bounce back game in a big way, which they got last weekend with a 77-6 win over Nevada. That was a bit of a frustration game, where the Ducks blew off some steam, but will they have the same output here? Oregon are 10-1 SU in their last 11 home games, but they are also just 4-10 ATS in their last 14 Saturday outings.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction for Montana vs Oregon
It would appear that the bookies like the Ducks to run up the score again, as that 67-point total is a big one. The UNDER has hit in 4 of the last 5 Ducks games, and I think it hits here again. I do like Oregon to cover the spread.
Score: Montana Grizzlies 0 – Oregon Ducks 48
