3* Holiday Bowl SMASH on Oregon +3
The Ducks are not getting the respect they deserve here.  Oregon is 9-3 and closed out the season with a pair of dominant performances against Arizona and Oregon State.  The Cowboys lost 2 of 3 to end the season and 3 straight ATS.  I know those losses were to Texas Tech and Oklahoma, but losing affects momentum and the Boys won’t have as much as the Ducks heading into this one.  Oregon is 34-15 ATS when the line is +3 to -3 since 1992,winning in these spots outright by an average score of 29 to 26.7 so right away you have to like the Ducks in the small dog role.  The Cowboys are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite of 0-3.0 while Oregon is 13-5 ATS in their last 18 games as an underdog of 0-3.0.  Take the points.
