What to Know

The California Golden Bears have been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with the Oregon State Beavers and are hoping to record their first win since Feb. 1 of last year. California and Oregon State will face off in a Pac-12 battle at 10:30 p.m. ET on Thursday at Haas Pavilion. The Golden Bears are out to keep their three-game home win streak alive.

California was able to grind out a solid victory over the Fresno State Bulldogs on Sunday, winning 65-57. Guard Jordan Shepherd (17 points) was the top scorer for California.

Meanwhile, the contest between Oregon State and the Penn State Nittany Lions on Saturday was not a total blowout, but with the Beavers falling 60-45, it was darn close to turning into one.

Barring any buzzer beaters, California is expected to win a tight contest. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (3-1), so they might be worth a quick bet.

California's win lifted them to 3-4 while Oregon State's defeat dropped them down to 1-6. We'll see if the Golden Bears can repeat their recent success or if Oregon State bounces back and reverse their fortune.
