Why Bet on the Oregon State Beavers?
It’s been a while since Oregon State won a game. The Beavers are on borrowed time and on the verge of picking up their 18th-straight defeat. In their last game, the team went through a 78-67 road loss to Washington. It’s going to be difficult for the side to recover from this trench. Nonetheless, head coach Wayne Tinkle is determined to get his team back on track.
Oregon State averages 68.2 points per game on 44.3% shooting. They are better short-range shooters than long-range shooters. The Beavers hit 49.8% of their shots from the perimeter and the paint while keeping three-pointers to 31.8%. The team also has a slight edge from the line with a 70.0% free-throw percentage.
Defensively, the Beavers have plenty of ground to cover against a persistent Ducks squad. Oregon State allows 77.9 points per game and an unsatisfactory 47.6% opponent shooting percentage. This tells us that the team needs to double down on offense if they want to stay in the game.
A handful of names are on Oregon State’s injury report. Warith Alatishe is the latest player added to the list with an undisclosed injury. The forward remains questionable until further notice.
Why Bet on the Oregon Ducks?
Although the Ducks have the better overall record here, they are on a three-game losing streak. They are yet to recover from poor form, having gone just 2-6 in their last eight games. Their last two wins featured a narrow victory against the UCLA Bruins. This win reminds us that the squad is capable of pulling off wins against bigger teams.
Oregon is aggressive on offense. They average 72.0 points on 45.3% shooting. Their 51.3% field goal percentage is backed by 51.7% two-point and a 33.7% three-point percentage. The team will heavily rely on the duo of Jacob Young and De’Vion Harmon. Oregon Ducks leading scorer Will Richardson might miss the game due to an illness and indefinitely out of the lineup until further notice.
The Ducks are active on defense as well. The team averages less than 70 opponent points per game and limits teams to 43.8% shooting. They are particular when it comes to three-point defense and keep teams to 32.6% from downtown. Ultimately, Oregon keeps the opponent field goal percentage to a decent 49.9% in 31 games played.
