Oregon State is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games on turf and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games. The under is 4-1 in Oregon State’s last 5 games in October. Washington is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games. The over is 8-1 in Washington’s last 9 games. Oregon State is 0-4 ATS in these two teams last 4 meetings.
Washington comes into this game as a huge favorite at home. Oregon State looks like they will be missing their quarterback and have had issues on offense at times this season. Washington is a very good team on both sides of the ball and will have no issues in this game, but I am going with Oregon State to keep it within 5 touchdowns.
