USC is 15-34-2 against the spread against the Pac-12, 1-4 against the spread following a loss, and 0-4 against the spread in their last four home games. Oregon State is 6-1 against the spread against a tea with a losing record, 11-4 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the spread, and 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 road games. The underdog is 5-1-1 against the spread in the last seven meetings of these two.
My free pick in this one is going to be on the total and at 145.5 I like the under. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that pick in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
