5 reasons Ducks will beat Boise State in Las Vegas Bowl

5 reasons Ducks will beat Boise State in Las Vegas Bowl”

The under is 5-2 in Ducks last 7 games overall and the under is 4-1 in Broncos last 5 vs. a team with a winning record. Fast forward to 2017, and the Broncos again find themselves as underdogs in a West Coast bowl against a Power 5 team.

OR went 3-and-out on its first possession.

OR makes their way into the 2017 Las Vegas Bowl with a 7-5 record that saw them finish 4 in the Pac-12 conference.

Boise State used an interesting formation.

OR (7-5) heads into the 2017 Las Vegas Bowl against Boise State (10-3) looking for its eighth win of the campaign and the first without head coach Willie Taggart who bolted for Florida State. With Herbert, Oregon is averaging 52 points per game, compiling more than 550 yards in each.

The Ducks wrap up against Boise State in a game that also serves as the starting point for Mario Cristobal's tenure as UO coach.

On the ground, Oregon's star running back, Royce Freeman, decided not to play in the Bowl and focus instead on getting set for the NFL Draft.

If college football betting players have some reservations about backing OR, then they might want to check out the spread.

They've actually run it a few times since then, notably back in 2014 when they pulled it off twice. While Seniors will have their opportunity, I expect backups to also see playing time. The Broncos had started at Oregon's 21-yard line after quarterback Justin Herbert was strip-sacked. OR averaged 52.1 points in the seven games Herbert started this season, but only scored a total of 75 points in five games when the sophomore was out with a broken collarbone.

Cure Bowl: Western Kentucky (-61⁄2) vs. Georgia State - This will be a showcase game for Hilltoppers quarterback Mike White (3,826 yards, 24 TDs), a potential National Football League draft pick with good size (6-foot-4, 225 pounds) and a big arm. Well, the execution did not go well at all, and it resulted in a Troy Dye 86-yard return for a touchdown off the fumble. Boise State will have trouble keeping up.

"It's been awhile", Boise State coach Bryan Harsin, who was the offensive coordinator for those games.
