Oregon State Struggling on the Road

Oregon State will need to reverse some history to pick up a big win when they visit Utah this weekend. The Beavers have dropped their past five games on the road and have failed to cover in each of those contests. In three road games this season, Oregon has lost each by an average of 28.7 points per game.

Shark Bites
  • Oregon State is 1-3 SU, but 3-1 ATS in their last four games after losing as a favorite.
  • Utah is 6-2 ATS in their last eight games at home in October.
  • Utah dropped from No.3 to No. 13 after last week’s loss.

What looked like their first winnable game in several weeks saw the Oregon State Beavers lose a snoozefest to Colorado. The Beavers have been downright hard to watch over the past few weeks, with the team allowing an average of 38.9 points per game and scoring just 18.8.

Utah is coming off an embarrassing loss to unranked USC. Utes fans biggest fears came to fruition when bad Travis Wilson showed up last week with the quarterback tossing four interceptions—this coming from a team that had only given up seven interceptions all season before the game.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The Oregon State Beavers were listed as 21.5-point underdogs at opening but have since moves to +24.5. As of Friday the total was set at 54.
