The road to a National Championship in college basketball is a long one that is rarely smooth or free from obstacles. A solid regular season helps with getting a decent seeding once the bracket is released, but it is no guarantee that the tournament will be smooth sailing from start to finish. As we head into the final few days of the regular season, which will be followed the conference championships, the goal now is to build some momentum. A team that is in the middle of the ack right now can get hot and carry that momentum into the tournament, while the teams at the top can take a loss or two that begins to plant a little seed of doubt. We won’t know how any of this affects each individual team until March Madness begins, but for the Oregon Ducks, today is about steering out of the little rut that they are currently stuck in. They will try to do that with a home game against their rivals, the Oregon State Beavers, on Thursday night. The Ducks are a 10-point favorite on home court, with the point total set at 135. Let’s see how the College Basketball odds will be for the Oregon State vs Oregon.

Why bet on the Oregon State Beavers
The Oregon State Beavers are sinking like a stone and will almost certainly not be a part of the tournament this season. Their problems really began when they headed into PAC-12 Conference play, as they are on a run now that has seen them lose 3 in a row and go 3-8 SU in their last 11 games. While this team has been on the slide of late, they did recently beat the Ducks 63-53, so we should perhaps not totally count them out in this one. We should also mention, though, that they are just 1-6 SU in their last 7 visits to Eugene. They have covered the spread in 4 of their last 5 games versus the Ducks, but the Beavers are also 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games played on a Thursday night.

Why bet on the Oregon Ducks
The #14 ranked Oregon Ducks will absolutely be a part of March Madness, but they will definitely want to head into the tournament on a better run of form than they are having right now. The Ducks have lost 2 of their last 5 games and needed OT to take care of Arizona in their last game. Still, they are now sitting at 10-5 in PAC-12 play, which has them sitting just a half game out of first, so they still have a shot at winning the regular season conference crown. That said, they would probably need to win out for that to happen. Playing at home on this one certainly helps, as they have won all 14 home games this season and are on a run of 19 in a row unbeaten in their own building.

Oregon State vs Oregon Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
I don’t expect to see the Ducks lay an egg the way they did went they went on the road to face the Beavers a couple of weeks ago. I think they take their home win streak to 20, covering the spread in the process.
