With one more regular season game to go, this will be the last week for the Pac-12 as we know it. The 11th-ranked Oregon State Beavers (8-3 / 5-3) head to Eugene, Oregon, to take on the 6th-ranked Ducks (10-1 / 7-1), who will be the top-seed in the Pac-12 championship game in Vegas, on December 1st.
According to the Pac-12 standings, the Beavers are eliminated from a trip to the bright lights of the desert. Still, if Oregon State wins and Arizona beats Arizona State, the Wildcats would head to Allegiant Stadium while knocking out the Ducks. There is still plenty of drama to be had.
The current college football odds have made Oregon a 13.5-point favorite with a total of 62. Kick-off is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. ET / 5:30 p.m. PT, Friday, and can be seen on Fox. Let’s start our Oregon St. vs Oregon betting odds preview with a peak at the Beavers.
Location: Autzen Stadium, Eugene, OR
Beavers Will Find Their Offense Again
You really couldn’t have asked for anything other than what the Oregon State delivered against one of the better offenses in College Football after pitching a second-half shutout against the 4th-ranked Washington Huskies. SU allowed a touchdown with 54 seconds left, one that proved to be the game-winner, and then handed the nation’s 8th-ranked offense a goose egg the rest of the way.
Too bad the Beavers offense could only muster 10 points in the remaining 30 minutes to fall short. Despite the loss, Oregon State can still finish in the black for bettors for the 5th straight season with a cover. OSU is 33-18 ATS (+12.41 units) since 2019, with only Kansas State better in that time frame (37-17, +16.98 units).
As a dog, the Beavers are 19-8 in their last 28 games, and 11-3 ATS as a road dog. We switch gears in our Oregon St. vs Oregon betting odds preview by switching our attention to Oregon.
OL Makes The Ducks Dangerous
There are very few offensive lines in College Football that are as athletic as the one the Ducks will roll out this week. If you haven’t been able to stay up to watch many Oregon games, it’s nothing to see their linemen downfield delivering crushing blows while able to hold their own in passing downs.
They are a direct reflection of the success that quarterback Bo Nix has been able to have this season. Last week against Arizona State, many said that Nix was at an all-time best after throwing six touchdown passes in a 49-13 win at Arizona State last week. The Ducks have clinched their second straight season as a winner for bettors after a 7-2-1 run in 23-24, which is still going.
Over the last two seasons, Oregon is 14-6-1 ATS, only four other teams have been better in that span (Kansas State, Troy, UNLV, and Penn State). We conclude our Oregon St. vs Oregon betting odds preview with our official selection.
This is always one of the better match-ups on the college football schedule, but this one should be a classic. Our focus is on a total that has moved down slightly in some spots after opening up at 62.5.
There aren’t many early betting pattern numbers to go off of right now, but we suspect this number will stay put for most of the week. Oregon State is a top 30 team in total yards, yards/per play, and yards/completion. They are more than capable of doing their part to push this game over against the nation’s second-ranked offense. Sit back and enjoy this one, but have a ticket on the over.
