The #11 Oregon St Beavers (7-1) travel to the #14 Stanford Cardinal (7-2) in a battle of highly ranked PAC-12 teams, at 3:00 ET. NCAA football odds are at Top Bet sportsbook.
Oregon St. rebounded with a 10 point home win last week after losing their first game of the year at Washington. They have navigated a schedule that looked daunting before the season started, including non-conference games against Wisconsin and BYU. However, these wins look less impressive now. Even so, the Beavers are 6-2 ATS this year, but are 4-0 ATS as underdogs this year. They can win games in a variety of different ways, and should lean pretty heavy on their passing attack which is averaging 300+ yards per game this year.
Stanford has won three in a row after suffering an overtime loss to Notre Dame in mid-October. Before that loss, they had won four of their first five games, with each of those games except the Duke game being decided by less than a touchdown. For the season, they are 5-4 ATS, however, they have covered in 3 of their past 4 games. This team does like to rise to the occasion, as they are 10-4 ATS in their past 14 against teams with winning records.
Stanford is favored by 4 points at home. They are 22-10 ATS in their last 32 at home, but most of that was under Luck. This year they are 2-3 ATS. By contrast, Oregon St. is 3-1 ATS on the road, and 3-0 SU and ATS as a road dog this year against BYU, Arizona, and UCLA. Look for the Beavers to spring the upset and win this game outright, take them +4 but first read a sports book review.
