The Oregon State Beavers (6-2 / 3-2) travel to Boulder to take on the Colorado Buffaloes (4-4 / 1-4) after the Buffs dropped their second straight game to UCLA (28-16) as a 14-point dog. Head Coach Deion Sanders was unhappy with his team’s effort, but bettors were as Colorado went to 4-3-1 ATS.
The Beavers are a little better, with a 5-3 ATS record. Even though they failed to cash a ticket against Arizona, the Beavers are still 3-1 ATS in their last four. College Football lines today show Oregon State as a 13.5-point road favorite with a total of 63. Kick-off is scheduled for 10:00 p.m. ET / 7:00 p.m. PT and can be seen on ESPN.
Let’s start our Oregon State vs Colorado betting odds preview by looking at the Beavers from a betting perspective.
Beavers Start Climb Through AP Log Jam
With Oregon State’s loss to the Beavers, instead of moving into the top ten, the team fell to 19 in the coaches poll. After losing for the first time on the road, this trip to Folsom Field provided a quick chance to wipe the taste from their mouths. This will be a revenge spot for the Buffaloes after getting crushed in Corvallis last NCAAF season, 42-9.
That point may be moot, considering the Beavers have a little revenge in their favor after losing four of their last six meetings in Boulder. If there ever was a friend to the betting public over the years, it’s been Oregon State. Since 2019, OSU is 32-16 ATS (+13.50 units). Only Kansas State (35-16-1, +16.17 units) has a better record against the number, making it difficult to go against Oregon State, but there appears to be a more attractive option.
We continue our Oregon State vs Colorado betting odds preview by switching our attention to the always entertaining world of Colorado Buffaloes Football.
Colorado Stolen From Twice
If the Buffaloes could find any sort of offense, they would have done more than cover against the UCLA Bruins. After the game, it was found out that several Colorado players had jewelry stolen from their lockers, putting a little more salt in the wounds.
It will likely be easy to figure out who did that, but it’s always easy to determine if Colorado deserves our financial backing. That happens when a team’s last three NCAAF games have resulted in a win, a loss, and a push. It’s been five straight games since Colorado had results that matched their previous game against the number.
Bettors look for their name when looking at College Football scores because they usually provide an entertaining result. If Colorado does turn a profit this season, it will be quite the turnaround from their 2-10 ATS mark last season.
As a program, Colorado is 12-18-1 ATS over the last three seasons and 22-25-1 ATS since 2019. There is a better option if you want to have money on Neon’s team this week as we conclude our Oregon State vs Colorado odds preview with our official selection.
It’s Tough But We Anticipate An Offensive Explosion
We don’t have any data yet, but we anticipate the public will bet the under after Colorado was held to just 16 points last week while Arizona put up 24. But it’s still good enough to cash an under ticket. That could change when the NCAA football injury report is listed for the two teams. With two NCAAF teams that still have much to prove, anticipate the ball in the air for the Buffs while Colorado tries to stop the Beavers running game.
Our official selection is over 63, but watch it to make sure that early betting patterns don’t push this number in the wrong direction. That concludes our Oregon State vs Colorado odds preview, we wish you all the best with your wagers this week.
