2011 BCS Championship: Picks And Predictions, Writers Split Between Oregon and Auburn

From looking up predictions from the major websites, I think that it is safe to say that people are very evenly split on this game. Of the six major sources, each team picked up three predictions. And even within each site, the contributing experts were heavily divided. 

Source Winner Notes
Fanhouse Ducks Brett McMurphy makes his picks including the spread, and likes Oregon +2½. Tigers The consensus is Auburn, but it is a close margin. The four writers are split at two apiece, with the tiebreaker being decided by a 58% vote by Yahoo users for Auburn.
CBS Sports Ducks Four votes out of five for Oregon, with Dennis Dodd as the lone dissenter.
USA Today Tigers Auburn gets 6 votes from the 8-person panel.
What If Sports Ducks This one is a bit of a surprise. The simulations prdict a 38-32 win for Oregon, and has the Ducks winning 69% of the time.
Sportsnation Tigers Out of about 405,000 votes, 52% think Auburn will win.

I will continue to add predictions as they are published. If I missed any, add them in the comments.
