Current Point Spread & Over/Under Total
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Cougars are now 21-point home favorites to beat the Beavers after opening as a 16-point favorite. As for the total, the number hit the board at 64 but has been bet down to 65.5.
OREGON STATE BEAVERS
The Beavers are 7-1 against the spread in their last eight conference games and are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games versus a team with a winning record. They're also 5-2 at the betting window in their last seven games following a loss but are just 3-7 against the number in their last 10 games in September.
WASHINGTON STATE COUGARS
The Cougars have struggled at the betting window, failing to cover in all five of their last five games overall and are 0-4 against the number in their last four home games. They're also 2-5 at the betting window in their last seven conference games and are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games coming off a win.
OUR PREDICTION: I seek out underdogs but they have to be underdogs that I know that are going to be competitive. That doesn't describe Oregon State, which ranks 128th out of 130 teams nationally in scoring defense. The Beavers are allowing 46 points per game and will be without both of their starting cornerbacks in Xavier Crawford and Dwayne Williams. Safety Jalen Moore will also miss the first half tonight after he was ejected for targeting a week ago versus Minnesota. This one is going to get ugly.
