As a team, Arizona State is averaging 363.8 yards of total offense and 23.7 points per game while allowing 379.2 yards of total defense and 22.2 points per game against this season.
The Oregon State Beavers will be looking to rebound after a 19-7 loss to Washington in their last outing. Jake Luton has thrown for 2,018 yards, 19 touchdowns and 2 interceptions on 61.5% passing while Artavis Pierce leads Oregon State in rushing with 727 rushing yards and 6 touchdowns and Jermar Jefferson is right behind with 440 rushing yards and 4 TDs.

Arizona State is 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 road games. Oregon State is 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games and 6-13 ATS in their last 19 conference games while the under is 4-0-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record. Arizona State is 2-5-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings between these two teams.
I’d like to give Arizona State a look in this spot as the Beavers are just 1-4 SU at home this season, but it’s just hard for me to invest in Arizona State who hasn’t looked great during this losing skid and now their quarterback situation is up in the air for this game and looks like a gametime decision. Oregon State fell flat offensively against Washington, but all in all, the offense has been pretty good for Oregon State lately and I really like what I see from Jake Luton even if the wins and losses haven’t matched the performance from the QB. I’ll side with Oregon State at home in this one.
