The fifth-ranked Washington Huskies (10-0 / 7-0) head to Corvallis, Oregon to take on the 11th-ranked Beavers of Oregon State (8-2 / 5-2). The Huskies may find themselves in the postseason playoffs, but they’ve been one of the bigger letdowns for bettors who are just 4-5-1 ATS after covering their first three games with a push. Oregon State is 6-4 ATS after crushing Stanford last week (62-17) as a 21.5-point favorite.
This week’s scores and odds page show the Beavers have been bet up to -2.5 after Washington opened as a slight 1-point favorite, with a total of 62. Kick-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET / 4:30 p.m. p.m. PT and can be seen on ABC. We start our Washington at Oregon State lines analysis starting with the visiting Huskies.
Washington Focused On Playoffs
The better you are as a program, the more other places want the man who got you there. Head Coach Kalen DeBoer has been the center of speculation that he may be a candidate for other jobs, although DeBoer insists that he only has an interest in the Huskies, that’s what they all say. DeBoer is 21-2 straight-up over the last two college football seasons making him a fan favorite, but with a 10-10-1 ATS mark, bettors think his team underperforms.
This will likely be only the second time that Washington will be an underdog under DeBoer, with the last time being last season when they were a 12-point underdog to Oregon, a game they won outright, 27-20. If Washington wins, they will have clinched a spot in next month’s Pac-12 title game in Vegas, one win away from cashing a Pac-12 championship odds ticket. Over the last four seasons, Washington is just 14-21-1 ATS and 3-4 ATS as an underdog.
We continue our Washington at Oregon State lines analysis by breaking down Oregon State.
So You’re Telling Me There’s A Chance
Oregon State is two games behind the Washington Huskies for the top spot in the Pac-12 and just a game in back of Oregon for the second slot. With this week’s game and then a road date with in-state rival Ducks, the Beavers are well within the range of a trip to the Entertainment Capital Of The World, but they must sweep in order to move up into the top two of the Pac-12 College Football standings.
In order for that to happen OSU will rely heavily on Damien Martinez who rushed for four first-half touchdowns last week against Stanford, and QB D.J. Uiagalelei who is on pace to throw for over 2500 yards this season to go with 5-1 touchdown to interception ratio (20/4). Since 2019, only Kansas State (37-16-1 ATS) has been better against the number than Oregon State who brings a 33-17 ATS (+13.41 units) record into this one.
We conclude our Washington at Oregon State lines analysis with our official selection.
Get Your Money In Quick
We should have written this when the number was 64.5, but those are the breaks, and now we’re looking at a total of 62 with some 62.5’s out there. We’re seeing over money and over tickets so this number should settle down, but don’t leave it to chance because there is always the flurry of last-hour wagering that could work against us.
The Huskies will have a difficult time establishing the run against the nation’s 16th-ranked run defense, while Washington’s secondary (59.4% passing percentage against) should find some success in slowing down Uiagalelei just enough.
This season when the total is 60 or more, the over is just 39-56 ATS. Using that filter, the over is just 421-514-14 (.450) -128.15 units. Take the under 62.
