College football betting line numbers have the Boise State Broncos favored at home against the Oregon Ducks in an ESPN televised contest.
This game is a great way to start the college football sports betting season as both teams are ranked in the Top 20. College football odds have Boise State a 4.5 point favorite with a total of 63.5.
College football betting line odds don’t match the polls in this game. Oregon is ranked 14th in the country while Boise State is ranked 16th. Home field is important on the college football betting line though and not many teams win on the blue field in Boise. Oregon is capable of springing the upset in college football odds though.
This is a huge game in the BCS because if Boise State wins they would move up in the online sports betting rankings and have a shot an undefeated season. The Broncos have done it before as in 2006 they went 13-0 and then beat Oklahoma in college football odds in the Fiesta Bowl. The Broncos went unbeaten last year in the regular season but missed a BCS bowl and lost in the Poinsettia Bowl to TCU.
Oregon will not walk into this college football betting line matchup without a chance. They have a new head coach in Chip Kelly and a powerful offense led by Jeremiah Masoli. He had thirteen passing touchdowns and ten rushing TDs a year ago as sports betting stats tell us. The Ducks also have LeGarrette Blount who led the team with 17 TDs a year ago. Defensively the Ducks were not very good a year ago and things don’t look any better for 2009. You can expect shootouts in Oregon games this season on the college football betting line.
When you think of Boise State you probably think offense but Boise State’s defense allowed just 12.6 points per game last year to rank third in the nation. They do lose MVP Ellis Powers as online sports betting info indicates but they return a lot of talent. The offense has quarterback Kellen Moore who passed for 3,486 yards and 25 touchdowns as college football betting line stats tells us.
This is only the second all-time meeting in college football odds between Boise State and Oregon. Last year Boise State won 37-32 at Oregon versus the college football betting line.
