Oregon Ducks 2021 Season
Oregon went 4-3 in 2020, but an abbreviated schedule couldn’t keep the Ducks from winning their second-consecutive Pac-12 title or reaching a New Year’s Six bowl. Now the program is projected for nine wins in 2021 and enters the new year as the favorite in its conference once again.
Expectations are high in Eugene, but can quarterback Anthony Brown meet them? That’s the million-dollar question after the Boston College transfer took over the starting job late in 2020. He’s got three years of experience starting at QB, but has also battled durability issues.
Behind Brown, running backs CJ Verdell and Travis Dye form what could be one of the stronger backfield tandems this year. Verdell has twice been a 1,000-yard rusher but was limited by injury to a career-low 285 yards in 2020. In his absence, Dye broke out with the extra touches, averaging 6.9 yards per carry. Brown also gets the Ducks’ top three receivers back. Devon Williams led Oregon with 286 yards at 19.1 yards per catch while Jaylon Redd had a team-high 25 receptions.
Defensively, the Ducks may have one of college football’s better individual players in Kayvon Thibodeaux . The defensive end had 42 tackles with 9.5 for loss, three sacks and three pass breakups a year ago. Cornerback Mykael Wright (nine pass breakups) will likely become the backbone of the secondary with several contributors gone from last season. Oregon begins its season on September 4 with a home game against Fresno State.
Betting on the Oregon Ducks
Betting point spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. The Ducks went 4-2 overall in the regular season, but were worse against the spread at 3-3. Oregon’s wins came by an average of 11.3 points. Here’s an example:
- Oregon -2.5 (-110)
- USC +2 .5 (-110)
In this situation, Oregon is favored by 2.5 points against USC. If the Ducks win the game by three or more points, a $100 wager on Oregon would come with a payout of $90.91. If the Trojans won the game outright or lost by two points or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.
FAQ: Everything you need to know about point spreads
Over/under, also called point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number and you can either bet the over or — you guessed it — the under. Here’s how it works:
Let's say Oregon plays Arizona State and the over/under is set at 65 points. A wager on the over would require the Ducks and Sun Devils to score 66 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 64 or fewer points. It's also possible for the bet to push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 65 points scored.
In 2020, Oregon averaged 31.3 points and allowed 28.3 points per game. The Ducks hit the over in 50% of their games last season.
FAQ: Betting the point total, explained | What is a push?
Oregon was 4-2 during the 2020 regular season, first winning three games in a row before dropping its next two and then winning the Pac-12 Championship Game. The Ducks were a streaky pick on the moneyline, which is as straightforward as it gets when it comes to betting. The only thing to do here is pick the winner. Check out this example:
- Oregon -160
- Utah +18 0
The minus (-) and plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making Oregon the favorite in this scenario. Odds can be understood more clearly if you think in terms of $10 or $100 increments. A wager on the Ducks odds would mean every $160 bet nets $100. And it's the opposite for underdogs: Here the Utah moneyline was set at +180, meaning a $100 wager would profit $180.
Moneylines are also commonly used when making parlays, which are multiple bets tied into one. Let’s say you bet on Oregon’s moneyline and a -2.5 point spread, UO would need to win by three points for that bet to be successful. The risk may be greater, but so is the reward with increased odds.

Player props are wagers on a single player, and they're tied to a single stat found in the box score for a game or even the whole season. These are among the most fun to bet on, especially if you're already playing fantasy football and like the player-specific focus it offers. Check out an example below:
- CJ Verdell 2021 rushing yards: 1,100.5

Oregon Ducks Futures
Futures are somewhat similar to prop bets in the way that both are monitored over the course of a season. Except most future bets are focused on end of season success. Examples of futures are:
- Oregon Ducks odds to win the Pac-12
- Oregon Ducks odds to reach the College Football Playoff
- Oregon Ducks odds to win the College Football Playoff
If you think the Ducks can make their return to the College Football Playoff or even win the CFP championship, this is the place to bet. These types of bets are called futures, and they're just wagers on things that settle at the end of the year. For a full list of college football futures, click or tap here.
