    Shedeur Sanders Passing Yards: Over 325.5 (-115)

    Having torn apart every defense he’s faced since transferring from Jackson State to the Buffaloes, the first of the Colorado prop bets that we tracked down was the over/under on Shedeur Sanders’ passing yards. While the Oregon defense has proved stingy so far this season, Sanders has yet to be held under the 325.5-yard marker offered for the Colorado vs. Oregon game.

    Now, no quarterback so far this season has thrown more than 300 yards on this Oregon defense but the Ducks haven’t met the same caliber quarterback that they’re dealing with on Saturday. Furthermore, Sanders hasn’t had a game yet where he’s tallied less than 40 pass attempts while averaging 9.2 yards per pass attempt on the season. The confidence rating is high on this one.

    Will Both Teams Score 30 or More Points: Yes (+210)

    Averaging 59.0 yards per game so far this season, Dan Lanning’s Oregon team has the second-highest-scoring offense in the nation. They also haven’t scored less than 38 points in any game this year. With all due respect, Portland State and Hawaii won’t be the toughest defenses they face this year, but they still put up 38 points on a good Texas Tech team.

    Colorado will also be without star defensive back Travis Hunter who had his liver lacerated during the Colorado State game. So, the Ducks have a clear pathway to 30 points. Meanwhile, Texas Tech put up 30 on Oregon in Week 2, setting a precedent for Colorado to follow. Sanders’ team is averaging 41.3 points per game and has the personnel and scheme to get the job done.

    Xavier Weaver Receiving Yards: Over 93.5 yards (-114)

    When you have the depth of talent on offense that the Buffaloes have, Colorado prop bets on receiving yards might be considered a risky business. However, with Hunter’s absence also causing an offensive impact as well as a defensive one, there’s at least one less mouth for Sanders to feed.

    When you’re a big play threat like former South Florida Xavier Weaver, you don’t need too many targets to rack up a substantial receiving yard total anyway. He’s averaged 15.4 yards per catch this season and has yet to have a single game where he’s tallied less than the 93.5-yard over/under line being offered.

    Shedeur Sanders and Bo Nix Combine for 550+ Passing Yards and to Combine 5+ Plus Passing TDs: +165

    Let’s throw a little college football player special into the Colorado prop bet mix. It does, after all, feature Buffaloes quarterback Sanders. Assuming that our first bet of this piece hits, that’s already 325 yards of the 550+ combined accounted for, leaving Oregon’s Bo Nix to hit just 225 yards. The Heisman Trophy contender has done that in every game so far this year.

    In their least productive games of the season so far, Sanders and Nix would have combined for four touchdown passes. At their most productive, they’d have combined for seven — which would have happened twice. If this game turns into the shootout that we’re assuming it will, they should easily pass the five-touchdown marker that would turn a profit from this prop bet.

    2+ First Downs on First Five Plays: Yes (+134)

    Can’t wait for total touchdowns or passing yards or receiving yards to play out throughout the game? How about a little fast and furious early action for your Colorado prop bets? You can currently get odds of +134 for the first five plays of the game to feature two first downs. Allow me to explain why that makes too much sense to miss out on.

    If Oregon gets the ball first, they’re the king of collecting first downs in the Pac-12 and currently rank fourth nationally. They also hit on third-down conversions over 50% of the time. Colorado has been one of the worst teams at preventing third-downn conversions too, so Oregon getting the ball first would be handy for this prop bet to pay off.

    However, Colorado is none-too-shabby at moving the chains, ranking 19th nationally for first downs per game while converting 47.83% of their third down attempts. Although Oregon’s third-down defense has been substantially better than Colorado’s thus far, it’s all relative to their opposition.

    Both teams can, and will, move the chains.
