Oregon State is 8-1 against the spread in their last nine home games against a team with a losing road record, 5-1 against the spread following a loss, and 21-6-2 against the spread in their last 29 home games. Washington State is 4-1-1 against the spread following a win, 5-18-4 against the spread in their last 27 road games, and 1-4 against the spread against the Pac-12. The road team has covered the point spread in seven of the last eight meetings of these two.
When Oregon State has been on they have been very tough and I look for that to be the case here.
