Welp, even the guys in Vegas get it wrong periodically…or they are just sandbagging the betting public. The latter of which seems to be more applicable. The Oregon Ducks were our most “overrated” team last week, but waltzed into the Horseshoe and handled the Buckeyes. The only reason the game was close is that Mario Crisobal and Joe Morehead decided to throw the ball.


The UCLA Bruins are our most Overrated team for Week 3…

  • Oregon was clearly better than everybody outside of Eugene thought. The Ducks ran whatever they wanted at Ohio State. Buckeyes dropped 11 spots in Vegas’ rankings.
  • Texas is not back, even under Steve Sarkisian. The Longhorns got blasted by their old Southwest Conference friends. Interestingly, the new SEC model could have “pods”…and that pod is likely Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas and Texas A&M.
  • Vegas has Alabama, Georgia, and Texas A&M at 1, 2, and 3…
  • Notre Dame is hanging in there, but the Irish have Purdue, Wisconsin, Cincinnati and Virginia Tech on deck the next four weeks.
