Oregon – Auburn Match Prediction | 26-08-2019 19:30

Home games with Cal and Colorado dont seem to pose much of a threat, although the Golden Bears should take another step forward under head coach Justin Wilcox. The Buffaloes are reportedly bringing in Georgia defensive coordinator Mel Tucker as their new head coach, but nothing has been confirmed. Both games are at home, and for that reason, Ill say Oregon wins and starts the season 6-0.

I think Herberts experience edge give the Oregon passing game the edge over Auburns. Im giving Oregon the nod here. Auburns defensive line is considered one of the best nationally and the same could be said for Oregons offensive line. Keep an eye on that area, as itll be crucial to the final result. I also believe the Ducks talented secondary will force whichever frosh gets the start difficulties. The Ducks are the more experienced team led by three-year starting quarterback Justin Herbert. The matchups in the trenches will be fantastic.

2 receiver, Jaylon Redd, had about half as many catches and scores as Mitchell. But theres still the matter of in whose direction will Herbert be throwing the ball. Weve been through the highest of highs and lowest of lows and weve seen all the success thats been at Oregon so were capable of looking at it and realizing this isnt where we wanted to be, Herbert said. Theres a direction that were heading and I think we need to keep going that way. All well and good. The trio of [Brenden] Schooler, [Johnny] Johnson and Redd played a ton, and had moments, but were largely underwhelming, writes Erik Skopil of 247sports.com. Oregons No. Wide receiver Dillon Mitchell (75 receptions, 10 TDs) was selected by Minnesota in the 7th round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

The three opponents which pose the biggest threat for Oregon in my mind are Auburn, Washington and Washington State all three will have a new quarterback under center for the 2019 campaign. If the Ducks return these key players, my initial thoughts see a 10 win season. Oregons depth still isnt where it needs to be to make a playoff run, but a Pac-12 championship is a realistic expectation. Experience plays a huge role in sports, and the Ducks will have that advantage if Herbert returns. Oregons success for the 2019 season of course all depends on if Herbert returns, among others including Calvin Throckmorton, Mitchell and Dye.

Oregon Ducks vs. Auburn Tigers Betting Trends

The Sun Devils will be losing two key offensive pieces in quarterback Manny Wilkins and receiver NKeal Harry, but Tempe has figured to be a difficult place to play for the Ducks as of late. Still, I think Oregon finishes the season with three straight wins. Both the Wildcats and Beavers are set to improve next season, but the Ducks roster and talent should out-match both schools. The last leg of the schedule sets up nicely with a home game versus Arizona, a road contest against Arizona State and the regular season finale, the Civil War at Autzen Stadium.

Note: bookmakers' policies on voided matches changes so we always recommend players to check the specific terms of bookmakers they bet with to ensure they understand under what circumstances they void bets. Void bets occur when the bet is not decided as a win or loss and the stake is returned to the player. a common void bet occurs in tennis when a player retires through injury. This happens when a match is suspended, posponed, or cancelled e.g.

After all, they have who could be one of the better [running] backs around the country in Boobee Whitlow. Starting QB Jeff Jarrett Stidham passed for 364 fewer yards than in 2017. The Tigers defeated Purdue 63-14 to become the Music City Bowl champions. At least according to new running backs coach Cadillac Williams. Auburn was invited to the Music City Bowl which they entered, according to legal betting websites, as 3.5-point chalk. However, he threw just as many TD passes and one fewer pick. No matter, though; perhaps Auburn will rely more heavily on the run game now. Stidham was selected by New England with the 133rd overall pick in the 4th round of the 2019 NFL Draft. The Tigers finished the 2018 season 8-5 SU, 3-5 in SEC play, and 6-7 ATS.

Oregon hasnt had a ton of success against the SEC in the past decade but I think this year's Advocare classic is where it changes. A low scoring, field position battle. Depending on how the Ducks are able to move the ball early, we might be looking at a redux of the Michigan State game. Offensively, the Ducks return 10 starters but will have their hands full against a very stout Auburn defense. Ultimately I think the Ducks are able to crack through the Auburn defense and take the game by 10 points. The Ducks return 8 starting defenders plus add numerous weapons like Kayvon Thibodeaux should match up nicely against a young Auburn offense that will be breaking in a freshman quarterback.

Two-year starting quarterback Jarrett Stidham elected to jump to the NFL after last season. That means itll be a fresh face leading the Tiger offense in Dallas this year. Auburn went 8-5 last year, but just three wins came over SEC teams. They did absolutely annihilate Purdue (63-14) in the Music City Bowl to cap the season. Freshmen Joey Gatewood and Bo Nix have emerged from spring as front runners, although Gus Malzahn has yet to name a starter.
