Oregon State vs. Washington Prediction
Will undefeated Washington run up the score enough to cover versus Oregon State this evening at 6:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Huskies are 36.5-point home favorites versus the Beavers while the total currently sits at 53 points. While the side hasn’t moved off that 36.5-point number, the over/under has dropped from 54.5 down to 53.
The Beavers have covered in five of their last seven games but are just 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 games on the road. They’ve also been a poor bet in conference games, failing to cover in 14 of their last 19 games versus Pac-12 competition. They’re just 2-7 at the betting window in their last nine games after allowing less than 170 yards passing in their previous contest as well.
The Huskies, meanwhile, have been a fantastic play for bettors of late, covering in four of their last five home games and going 4-1 ATS in conference play. They’re also 9-1 against the spread in their last 10 games coming off a bye week and have covered in seven of their last nine games overall.
OUR PREDICTION: The Beavers are winless at 0-4 against the spread in their last four games versus the Huskies, who are averaging 49.5 points per game offensively this season. Washington is also allowing just 14.2 points per contest so despite the high number, the Huskies should roll offensively while keeping the Beavers at bay. Oregon State stunned Cal 47-44 in overtime and fell 19-14 to Utah in a competitive game, but the Beavers are without starting quarterback Darrell Garretson and backup Conor Blount. That means third-stringer Marcus McMaryion faces a Washington defense that will be unrelenting from start to finish.
