The Oregon State Beavers are 17-10 this season and they are coming off of a win over Colorado that ended a three game losing skid. Oregon State is averaging 61.1 points and they are shooting 42.7 percent while defensively they are allowing 57.1 points and their opponents are shooting 37.6 percent. Gary Peyton II is averaging 13.2 points and 7.7 rebounds per game.

Stanford is 1-5 against the spread in their last six games, 6-2 against the spread against a team with a winning percentage over .600, and 3-7-2 against the spread in their last 12 home games against a team with a losing road record. Oregon State is 2-7 against the spread in their last nine games, 0-4 against the spread in their last four road games, and 2-5 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread.
This is likely a low scoring game so while I see Stanford pulling out the win I see Oregon State covering the spread.
