Utah vs Oregon State Betting Prediction

Utah comes into this matchup with a 9-9 conference record and they are tied for fifth in the PAC-12 standings, while Oregon State is dead last. The Beavers have played slightly better at home this year, while Utah is only 2-7 on the road. Utah has won three of their last four games and they are scoring over 78 points per game this season. Utah won the first meeting between these teams by a score of 74-47, but I like Oregon State in this matchup. The Beavers have played better in their last two games and I can’t trust Utah on the road.
