I’m sticking with Utah in this one. I just don’t trust Oregon State and the Beavers are looking more and more like the team that struggled their way through conference play last season. Utah’s had their ups and downs, but they’re the better team here and are much better on the defensive end of the floor. I’ll back Utah to get the win and cover in this one.
