Oregon State split the season series with Oregon with the home team winning each time.
Oregon is 4-0-1 against the spread in their last five games, 6-0-1 against the spread in their last seven neutral site games, and 5-1-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record. Oregon State is 4-0 against the spread in their last four games, 10-4-1 against the spread in their last 15 neutral site games, and 6-2 against the spread against a team with a winning percentage over .600. Oregon State is 1-3-1 against the spread in the last five meetings of these two.
My free pick in this one is going to be on the total and I like the over. 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.
