Beavers Making a Rare Tournament Appearance

Friday’s Round of 64 action will be a massive day for Oregon State. The Beavers are set to snap a 26-year NCAA Tournament drought – the second-longest active streak among major conference programs in the nation – and will collide with Virginia Commonwealth. Sportsbooks opened VIU in the -4-point ballpark.

Shark Bites
  • Virginia Commonwealth is 10-4 ATS in its last 14 games against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone UNDER in Virginia Commonwealth's last five games after losing as a favorite.
  • Oregon State is 6-2 ATS in its last eight games as favorites in March.

That’s a spot the Beavers have been excelling in as of late. Oregon State is 10-2 SU and 9-3 ATS in its last 12 games as an underdog of four points or less. They’ve also been a fantastic source of OVERS, as the OVER/UNDER is 4-0 in the Beavers’ past four.

The battle on the glass could go a long way to determining who takes this one. Oregon State has done a nice job in this department, going 19-1 when outrebounding its opponent in two seasons under head coach Wayne Tinkle and 9-0 this year.
