Why Oregon State Will Win

Few college football betting experts thought Oregon State was primed for a big year, but as the second weekend of November arrives, look who has just one loss on the season? The Beavers have been one of the most pleasant surprises in college football this season. After missing out on a bowl game each of the past two years, the Beavers have rallied this year to regain their winning edge and become a factor once again in the Pac-12 Conference. Oregon State, if it can win this game against Stanford, would very likely be able to face the Oregon Ducks on Nov. 24 for the Pac-12 North Division championship. That's a possibility that seemed nonexistent before the season began. Many pundits thought Oregon State would have done well just to get to 6-6 or 7-5 this season.

As you can see, overachieving is in this team's blood. It is a poor man's version of Kansas State in that it is well-schooled. Players know where they're supposed to be. The Beavers don't have blinding speed, but they are very active on defense and respond to an offense's movements. They fly to the ball and have a knack for making plays.

What also needs to be said about this game is that Stanford has not measured up on offense this season. Quarterback Josh Nunes and receiver Ty Montgomery have made so many mistakes that the Cardinal's offense has struggled for much of the year, despite the presence of a brawny offensive line and the superb running of NFL-ready running back Stepfan Taylor. Stanford doesn't make the most of its resources, while Oregon State does. That's why the Beavers will win.

Why Stanford Will Win

The best betting reason to take the Cardinal in this game is that the Cardinal should be able to outmuscle and overpower Oregon State on both sides of the ball. Stanford has not achieved as much as Oregon State this season, but the Cardinal do have more talent at most positions. They should be able to gain leverage at the line of scrimmage and win battles at the point of attack. Moreover, Oregon State quarterback Cody Vaz – despite leading his team to victory last week against Arizona State – has not protected the ball well. He has been plagued by turnovers, as has the Oregon State offense in general over the past few weeks. Stanford, if it can merely display airtight ball security, doesn't have to ring up big offensive numbers. It can focus on shutting down Oregon State, playing for field position, and wearing down the Beavers in the fourth quarter.

Who Will Win

Ultimately, Stanford is a stronger team, while Oregon State has been fortunate to lose only one game this year. Take the Cardinal at home in what would not be an upset at all.
