Oregon vs California Prediction & Pick
Oregon continues to prove why they should be in the playoff conversation week after week. Yes, this is a team that lost 49-3 to the Georgia Bulldogs in Week 1. However, the Ducks have beaten every other opponent on their schedule by an average of 23.3 points. They have bounced back in a big way.
It'd be shocking to see the Ducks end their winning streak on Saturday. Oregon is 11-2 straight up in its last 13 games against California and 4-1 straight up in its last five away games. The Golden Bears are also allowing a dismal 393.7 yards per game (No. 70 in FBS) and 5.5 yards per play (T-No. 68 in FBS).
Final Score Prediction: Oregon: 41 | California: 14

Oregon vs California Best Bet

The Ducks possess an offensive attack that is based around Nix's ability to throw. He is averaging 258.4 passing yards per game and has tallied 17 touchdowns compared to 3 interceptions. That is not good news for a California defense giving up 280.7 passing yards per game (No. 118 in FBS).
Even if Nix struggles, head coach Dan Lanning's team is still averaging a reliable 242.0 rushing yards per game (No. 7 in FBS). California will not be able to keep up on the scoreboard. Oregon is 5-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last six games and has the talent to blow out the Golden Bears.
Bet: Oregon -17.5 (-105)
