UCLA QB Josh Rosen led the Bruins to an epic 45-44 comeback victory after going down 34 points. His performance moved his odds down to +1200 at BetOnline and +2250 at 5Dimes. Bovada has him down at +800. UCLA is expected to put up 40+ points this weekend.

Oregon RB Royce Freeman has seen his odds improve from 115/1 to 40/1 at 5Dimes, and they’re down to 30/1 at BetOnline. Bovada does not list him as an option, and his Ducks are also projected for 40+ points this weekend against Nebraska.

Games that could shake up odds this upcoming weekend:
Louisville (-9.5) at UNC
USC (-6) vs. Stanford
Ohio St (-7) vs. Oklahoma

Team Totals:
Oregon 42
UCLA 42
Louisville 35.5
Ohio State 35.5
USC 30
Oklahoma 28.5

Quality games early on for many of the top Heisman candidates, which can end up causing big fluctuations in the odds market. A big performance and win against a top team is usually valued higher than big stats against a cupcake team.
