Best College Basketball Picks - Arizona vs Oregon State

There isn't much of a reason to believe that Oregon State can upset a top-25 school tonight. The Beavers have won of the worst offenses in the country, averaging 62.4 points (No. 335) on 42.5% shooting (No. 247). Those struggles have been even more evident lately as they've averaged 56.7 points in their last three games, only putting up 42 against Colorado.

Meanwhile, Arizona has the best offense in the nation, operating at an NCAAB-best 85.8PPG while shooting 49.8% from the field (No. 6). The Wildcats' thunderous offense has resulted in a plus-13.3 scoring margin (T-No. 12), which spells bad news for a Beavers team that can't keep things close.

Look for Arizona to win this game with ease.

Final Score Prediction: Arizona: 84 | Oregon State: 67

Arizona vs Oregon State Picks

A 15.5-point spread can be daunting, but Arizona has the tools to cover it. After all, the Wildcats are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games against Oregon State and 5-1 ATS in their last six trips to Gill Coliseum. On top of that, the Beavers are just 1-4 ATS in their last five games.

After beating Oregon State by 14 points in their last meeting, I see Arizona going the extra mile and covering tonight's 15.5-point spread.

Bet: Arizona -15.5 (-105)
