College football odds at the sportsbook on Saturday favor the Oregon Ducks even though they are facing a Utah team that is ranked in the Top 25.
ESPN will be televising this matchup that has an interesting college football betting line. College football odds have Oregon as a five-point home favorite against the 18th ranked Utes. The Utes have the longest winning streak in the country at 16 games dating back to last season. Last year the Utes finished #2 in the AP poll after their unbeaten 13-0 season. They have won their first two games this season but haven’t looked very good in either game. Last week they struggled to get by San Jose State 24-14. Terrance Cain passed for 248 yards in the win. "We’ve got our fair share of deficiencies to work on in practice," head coach Kyle Whittingham said. "You name it, we’ve got to work on it for next week. … We’re miles away from having all the answers."
The Utes could have a chance on the college football betting line against an Oregon team that looks out of whack under new head coach Chip Kelly. They lost 19-8 at Boise in their opener and just got by Purdue last week. Oregon was somewhat fortunate to pull that game out as they stopped a two-point conversion attempt to win 38-36. "We have moved on from last week. I am very impressed with the effort and hard work all of these players have put forth," Kelly said. "The offense was better this week. We ran the ball, and got a couple of first downs. It’s all about the rhythm, and once we get going the only people who can stop us are ourselves."
