The Missouri State Bears will look for a quality road win to snap a 4-game losing skid after an 88-69 loss to Air Force in their last outing. Tulio Da Silva led the Bears with 22 points on 9 of 12 shooting while Keandre Cook chipped in 13 points and Ryan Kreklow added 11 points to round out the trio of double-digit scorers for Missouri State in the losing effort. Obediah Church added 4 points and 3 blocks while Josh Webster chipped in 6 points and a team-high 7 assists. Cook leads Missouri State in scoring with an average of 16.1 points per game while Church leads the Bears in rebounding with 6.3 rebounds per game and Webster leads the Bears in assists with 5.3 assists per game this season. As a team, Missouri State is averaging 74 points per game on 46.1% shooting from the field, 31% from behind the arc and 69.1% from the foul line this season.
The Oregon State Beavers will look to build on back-to-back wins following a narrow 75-72 win over Long Beach State in their last outing. Ethan Thompson led the Beavers with 18 poitns on 7 of 13 shooting with a pair of threes and 7 rebounds while Stephen Thompson Jr. came right behind with 17 points. Tres Tinkle chipped in 12 points with team-highs of 9 rebounds and 4 assists and Gligorije Rakocevic added 10 points and 6 boards to finish off the foursome of double-digit scorers for the Beavers in the win. Kylor Kelley chipped in 6 points, 7 rebounds and 5 blocks as well in the winning effort for Oregon State. Tinkle leads Oregon State by averaging a double-double per game with 20.2 points, 10.3 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game this season.

Missouri State is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games and 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 non-conference games. Oregon State is 9-21 ATS in their last 30 non-conference games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games against a team with a losing road record while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 games overall.
We are starting to get thick lines with Oregon State, meaning I’m thinking that Vegas is starting to smarten up on how good Oregon State could be this season. Missouri State hasn’t looked very good during this 4-game slide and have had their issues ATS on the road. So while Oregon State hasn’t been the most explosive team on offense, I think the Beavers can do enough to cover this spread at home so I’ll lay the points with Oregon State
