Utah is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The over is 5-2 in Utah’s last 7 games. Oregon State is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Thursday games and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games. The over is 5-0 in Oregon State’s last 5 games. The underdog is 8-2 ATS in these two teams last 10 head to head meetings. 

Oregon State has been terrible this season and I am honestly surprised with how low the line is. Utah has the offensive advantage, defensive advantage, rebounding advantage, and free throw advantage. I like Utah here.
