TOM STRYKER’S FREE FOOTBALL SELECTION FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 29TH
#118 OREGON ST (-3′) over Utah at 9 PM EST
In case you haven’t been paying attention, Pac-12 hosts in conference play have inked a 7-0 ATS mark since the 2023 season started. Oregon State hasn’t forgotten about the 42-16 loss it suffered at Utah last year, and the Beavers will be ready to improve this trend to 8-0 ATS with a solid performance over the visiting Utes.
Technically speaking, this is a solid spot for OSU. Inside the friendly confines of Reser Stadium, head coach Jonathan Smith and his players have quietly inked a nearly perfect 13-1 SU and 11-1 ATS record in their last 14 games. As long as the Beavers are not priced as a favorite of -24 or more, this trend improves to a healthy 11-0 ATS. In addition, when competing with revenge, Oregon State has been worth the financial risk posting a proud 17-4 ATS mark in its last 21 tries including a stunning 7-0 ATS in this situation provided Coach Smith’s boys are asked to step up in class and compete against a foe that owns a team won/loss percentage of .600 or better.
It won’t be easy knocking off head coach Kyle Whittingham and the Utes. Utah has historically been a tough conference out. Thankfully, as a conference guest arriving with confidence off a SU and ATS victory, the Utes have been at their financial worst inking a soft 35-44 ATS record. In this situation checking in off a Pac-12 war, Utah falls to a rough 24-36 ATS including a miserable 16-30 ATS provided its opponent played on the road in their last game. With those three parameters in play and Coach Whittingham’s kids priced between -13.5 and +3.5, this team trend crashes to a pitiful 4-19 ATS.
With the help of a rush defense that allows only 2.43 yards per carry and 69.75 yards per game, the Beavers will bounce back off their hard-fought three-point road loss to the Cougars and stuff the Utes. Take Oregon State. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
