Teams that went down to the wire last week with vastly different results meet on Saturday when the Nevada Wolf Pack visit the 16th-ranked Oregon Ducks. Nevada, which trailed twice by 17-point deficits, rallied back in the final 30 minutes for a last-second 34-31 win over Purdue, while Oregon saw a 15-point second-half lead evaporate in a 27-21 setback to then-No. 16 Auburn. Kickoff from Autzen Stadium in Eugene is set for 7:30 p.m. ET. The Ducks are 24-point favorites in the latest Oregon vs. Nevada odds, while the over-under for total points scored is 61.5. Before making any Nevada vs. Oregon picks of your own, see the college football predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen massive returns. Over the past four years, this proprietary computer model has generated a jaw-dropping $4,530 profit for $100 bettors on its top-rated college football against the spread picks.
The model enters Week 2 of the 2019 college football season on a blistering 52-31 run on all top-rated picks. It also called Auburn (-3.5) covering against Oregon and Alabama (-34) covering against Duke in Week 1. Anybody who has been following it is way up.
Now, the model has dialed in on Oregon vs. Nevada. We can tell you it is leaning under, and it has a strong against the spread pick that cashes in over 60 percent of simulations. That one is only available at SportsLine.
The model has taken into account the play of Oregon at home, where the Ducks went 6-1 in 2018. The Ducks are also 4-1 against non-Pac-12 teams the past two seasons. Senior quarterback Justin Herbert had an efficient performance against Auburn, completing 28-of-37 passes for 242 yards and one touchdown. He has thrown at least one touchdown pass in 28 consecutive games, the longest active streak in the nation. For his career, Herbert has completed 569-of-902 passes for 7,312 yards and 64 touchdowns.
Junior wide receiver Jaylon Redd also continues to make his mark after catching nine passes for 64 yards in the opener. For his career, Redd has been clutch with 52 receptions for 556 yards and six touchdowns. As a sophomore, he finished second on the team with 38 receptions, 433 receiving yards and five scores.
But just because the Ducks are tough at home does not guarantee they will cover the Oregon vs. Nevada spread on Saturday.
That’s because Nevada knows how to overcome adversity. Redshirt freshman quarterback Carson Strong helped fuel the Wolf Pack’s comeback against the Boilermakers, completing 30-of-51 passes for 295 yards and three touchdowns. He had a quarterback rating of 126.8.
Proving to be a dual threat is sophomore running back Toa Taua. He rushed 12 times for 56 yards and one touchdown, and also caught eight passes. He was a preseason All-Mountain West selection and was on the preseason watch lists for multiple other awards.
