The Beavers are 6-0 ATS vs. a team with a winning record & 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games as a road underdog. The Ducks are 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games overall & 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games.
Oregon was able to pick up a huge win early in the season at Ohio State, however, the Ducks haven’t been overly dominant in conference play this season and was exposed against Utah as both sides of the ball struggled. Oregon State hasn’t been great on the road this season, as they have just a 1-4 record, however, the Beavers have some quality wins and must be encouraged by the defensive effort they have gotten over the last two weeks, holding Stanford & Arizona State to just a combined 24 points. I’m generally a bit hesitant backing Oregon State on the road, however, this being the “Civil War” against their in-state rival, I think the Beavers defense has some success in this one and as Oregon generally has played to the level of their competition, I think Oregon State does enough with points to cover. Good Luck!
