Arizona is 3-12 ATS in these two teams last 15 meetings.
Both of these teams have struggled to get wins this season, but Oregon State has played better for most of the season. Oregon State is also at home for this game, so they have the advantage. Both of these teams are inconsistent on defense, which should help the offenses get going. Arizona looks like a team that has given up, so I am taking Oregon State at home.
