Why Bet the Stanford Cardinal Odds at -23
The Stanford Cardinal have won four straight and improved to 5-2 on the season and 4-1 in Pac-12 play by smacking the Oregon Ducks senseless in their 49-7 home rout in Week 7 on October 14th. Stanford got out of the gate quickly by outscoring the Ducks 21-7 in the first quarter and never looked back en route to the huge road win and ATS cover as 9.5-point home favorites. Heisman Trophy-contending running back Bryce Love rushed 17 times for 147 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Cardinal to victory. Love leads the nation in rushing with 1,387 yards and has scored 11 touchdowns on the ground this season. Defensively, Stanford is limiting the opposition to a modest 22.0 points per game.
Why Bet the Oregon State Beavers Odds at +23
Oregon State has lost five straight games and fell to 1-6 on the season and 0-4 in Pac-12 play by suffering a heartbreaking 36-33 loss to Colorado in Week 7 despite covering the spread as a 9.5-point home underdog. The Beavers actually led 33-29 lead with 4:22 left in the game, but Colorado scored on a 13-yard touchdown pass by quarterback Steve Montez with just 1:34 remaining to get the win. Oregon State allowed Colorado to amass a whopping 569 yards of total offense in the loss. The Beavers are averaging 21.3 points per game, but giving up a whopping average of 43.7 points per contest defensively.
Stanford Vs Oregon State ATS Pick
After losing two of their first three games, Stanford has looked a lot better in winning four straight. Not only that, but the Cardinal have a legitimize Heisman trophy candidate in running back Bryce Love even If you’re not really hearing his name mentioned as a top candidate.
Oregon State doesn’t look very good at all despite putting up a good effort in their narrow home loss to Colorado the last time out. With the Beavers losing at USC by 28 points, at home against Washington by 35 points, at Washington State by 29 points and at home against Minnesota by 34 points, I think it’s highly probable they fall to Stanford by at least 24 points in this week 9 mismatch. The Cardinals are 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings against Oregon State and I think they’ll improve on that commanding ATS mark in this contest.
Pick: Stanford -23
