Stanford vs Oregon State Prediction

Oregon State is coming into this football game as a 13 point favorite with the current betting odds according to Draftkings Sportsbook. Neither of these teams have been playing well recently but Stanford has been worse than Oregon State in their games. Stanford had a nice start to their season but they have gone completely downhill since then losing a majority of their games in this final stretch and a lot of them by large margins. Oregon State has been staying competitive in their losses at least and they will be at home for this where they are undefeated on the season. The best bet to place in this game is on Oregon State to cover the spread here as they are a much better team and in a better spot to bounce back here.

Notable Quotes

 
"Just a terrible showing top to bottom. Obviously we missed some guys who aren't out there. ... That being said, we have 11 out there at a time, strap it up and get out there and play. Defensively we have to have a lot of discussions on how to stop the run. All year it's been close, it's been close. Today wasn't close." - David Shaw on his team’s loss against Utah in their last game.
 
 
“I felt it was the right time to make a change in our football program.” - Jonathan Smith on coming into this game against Stanford.
