It's not very me like to be laying two touchdowns, almost ever, but all Stanford has pretty much done at home is blow out opponent after opponent. Jim Harbaugh's team would be playing for the National Championship if they could have held that double-digit lead in Eugene earlier in the season. The Cardinal are a scary mix of athleticism and brute strength and have a future NFL starting quarterback in Andrew Luck who is just flat out awesome. This kid is well ahead of his years and as good as any signal caller in the nation right now.
Mike Riley's Beavers are a solid overall team that always seems to get better as the season gets later but that hasn't fully been the case this year. Yes that last blowout win against Lane Kiffin's Trojans was a great victory but losing the previous two games including the one at home to Pac-10 doormat Washington State was an eye opener to say the least. Ryan Katz is a young and mediocre quarterback who is missing James Rodgers. Jacquizz is still around wreaking some havoc but Oregon State is going to Palo Alto to face an absolute monster juggernaut right now in the Cardinal and I just don't see this thing ending all that pretty.
Stanford can play with any team in the entire nation and without a doubt should beat anybody at home. These guys score around 40 per contest and if you take out the loss to the Ducks on the road you see a phenomenal defensive squad that routinely gives up somewhere in the range of 14 and 21 points. Harbaugh's boys are 10-1 and should be 11-1 with little trouble after today.
The pick: Stanford at BetUs
For more information: Matt Rivers is says he's really not sure what to say about that Alabama game yesterday. You probably watched it, just a total anal protrusion of epic proportions. Anyway, my 300,000* on Akron was sweet as those Zips are winless no more. A trio of winners today led by another highly rated 400,000* in this game from College Park between NC State and Maryland. Bonus 300,000* Iowa and Minnesota along with a 200,000* on the hardwoods involving Cal Irvine and Marist Click now to purchase
