Oregon may be sitting on the bubble at 19-8 and they have a good chance to get off it in the next few games facing Oregon State on the road in this game, hosting Colorado in their next game, and hosting a 5-22 Utah team in their last game. Oregon State is not so lucky, as they may need to win the Pac 12 tourney to make the Big Dance.

The Ducks may be looking to exact some revenge on the Beavers, as at the end of January they lost to OSU in their house.
Oregon State is reeling, as they have lost 4 straight and 5 of their last 6 games and are only 5-10 in conference play.
For Oregon to win this game they will need a good game from their G/F duo of Devoe Joseph (16.3 ppg) and E.J. Singler (13.4 ppg) will need to play well. They also need help, as both had good scoring games in the earlier loss to OSU, but the Ducks still lost.
In the match up against Oregon State at the end of January Oregon could not hit water if they fell out of a boat with a team FG% of .383. On top of that they committed a season-high 23 turnovers. Some other players need to step up on offense and they need to be careful with the rock.
Watch for Jared Cunningham to have a bounce back game
Oregon State leading scorer Jared Cunningham (18.6 ppg) is coming off a 10-point game in his last game and in his last 3 games he is 4/12, 6/15, and 7/20 from the field, respectively, and he will need to get back track in this big rivalry game.
OSU 2nd leading scorer Devon Collier (13.2 ppg 4.8 rpg) has been playing decent, but how Cunningham goes the Beavers go and he will be key in this game.
While Oregon State has a great offense ranking 8th in the nation in scoring their D only ranks 303rd in opponents’ points allowed. If the Ducks struggle with their shot like they did in the first match up they will lose.
This season Oregon is 13-11 ATS with an O/U record of 11-13 and Oregon State is 11-11-1 ATS with an O/U record of 14-9.
In some betting trends for this Pac 12 match up Oregon is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 road games, 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games overall, and they have an Over record of 5-1 in their last 6 games following a S.U. win.
Oregon State is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall, 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record, and they have an Over record of 7-1 in their last 8 home games.
Pick: this one is not hard to call, as even though they are on the road and lost to Oregon State earlier this season Oregon is playing well and they will win this game and cover the spread.
