The Utah Utes come into this game with an impressive 4-0 record, and their defense has been a standout feature. Quarterback Nate Johnson has shown promise, passing for 398 yards and two touchdowns.

In their recent game against WSU, the Beavers had a high-scoring affair, losing 38-35. However, Oregon State's defense has shown vulnerabilities, allowing 327.0 total yards per game.
Offensively, the Beavers have been prolific, averaging 459.5 total yards per game.
Our prediction for this game is that the under of 44 points is the best bet. Several factors contribute to this prediction:
Firstly, the weather forecast for Corvallis, OR, indicates rainy conditions during the game. Rain often hampers passing offenses and makes the field slippery, leading to fewer scoring opportunities.
Secondly, both teams boast strong defensive units. Utah's defense has been exceptional, and Oregon State has also shown defensive strengths. With solid defenses on both sides, it's likely that points will be harder to come by.
Considering the expected rain and the strong defensive play, betting on the under of 44 points appears to be a prudent choice for those looking to wager on this matchup.
