  • The updated betting odds for Saturday's matchup between Oregon State and Washington State has the Beavers as comfortable favorites (spread: -4) on the road with the over/under set at 139.5.
  • Washington State is coming off of a big upset win against Oregon, but is still an underdog on Saturday.
  • How should you be betting this matchup? Michael Calabrese has every angle covered.

Despite lackluster results since the calendar turned to January, Oregon State has an opportunity to go on a run. The Beavers’ schedule sets up nicely in the next two weeks, starting with this road trip to Pullman, Wash.

As for Washington State, the Cougars are still probably celebrating their first upset of a top 10 team since their current starters were in second grade.

Here’s how I’m playing this afternoon matchup in the Pac-12.

Oregon State at Washington State

  • Spread: Oregon State -3.5
  • Over/Under: 141
  • Time: 4 p.m. ET
  • TV: Pac-12 Network

Right off the bat, this line should appear out of wack to casual observers. Both Oregon State and Washington State are far from basketball royalty, and they share identical 2-3 Pac-12 records headed into Saturday afternoon’s contest. Yet despite those facts, the road team is favored by four points.

The letdown factor is alive and well for Wazzu in this spot. The Cougars just knocked off Oregon on Thursday, the program’s best win since an overtime upset of seventh-ranked Arizona in 2007.

Oregon State, meanwhile, has been treading water the last six weeks — 4-4 straight-up in their previous eight, with a matching 4-4 record against the spread.

So why the sudden love for the Beavers on the road?
