Oregon State is 14-6 ATS in their last 20 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games played in September while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 week 3 matchups.
This isn’t the kind of number I want to lay with Oregon State as I’m really not sold on the Beavers this season. However, we have to remember that Idaho was an FBS team only a couple of years ago, and there’s a reason they moved down to FCS. This Vandals team just doesn’t have the horses to hang with the bigger programs like Oregon State and I think we really find out why as the Beavers win this game by something in the area of 38-10.
