Bet on Utah -9 Because…
Utah bounced back from a road loss to Cal with a terrific cover and win over Arizona at home in Week 6. Utah, as a -2 road favorite, blew the game to California in a 23 to 28 loss on Oct. 1. On Oct. 8, Utah beat Arizona 36 to 23 as a -9.5 home favorite. That brought Utah’s record to 3-1 ATS and straight up in their last 4 games.
Bet on Oregon State +9 Because…
Oregon State proved that it can hang with Pac-12 opponents in a stunning win over California in Week 6. As a +13.5 home dog, Oregon State wasn’t supposed to be able to hang with the California Golden Bears. Not only did Oregon State hang with the Bears, they beat them straight up. Oregon State won 47 to 44.
Expert ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
The key in this game on Saturday is going to be how good Oregon State rushes the football against Utah’s defense. The Beavers rushed for 474 yards from 50 carries against California. That’s a 9.5 per rush average.
Utah’s defense is much better than California’s defense. The Utes only allow 118.5 rushing yards per game. But Utah only scores 28 points per, meaning that if Oregon State can get the rushing attack going, they could definitely keep this one close enough to beat Utah against the spread.
Sometimes a team grows up in a single game. That may have happened for Oregon State in their game against Cal. I think that the Beavers lose a close one on Oct. 15.
