Oregon State is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games on turf. The over is 5-2 in Oregon State’s last 7 conference games. The road team is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 meetings.

Washington State has played very well this season after losing their first two games. Oregon State hasn’t played as well this season and has been overmatched in a few games this season. Washington State has a high-powered offense and should have no problem taking care of Oregon State. I like Luke Falk to have a big game here and get the Cougars a win.
