The 2022-23 college basketball season continues on Sunday with an exciting matchup between the Oregon State Beavers and Texas A&M Aggies. Oregon State fell just short in a 63-62 loss to USC last Sunday as it was outscored by 12 in the second half. Dexter Akanno logged 17 points and 6 assists.

Meanwhile, Texas A&M couldn't keep up with Boise State in an 86-71 loss in its most recent game on Dec. 3. Wade Taylor IV guided the offense with 16 points and 6 assists, but the Aggies struggled on defense. They allowed the Broncos to shoot 52.3% from the floor and 44.0% from three-point range.

Texas A&M enters this contest as clear home favorites on the moneyline and spread per FanDuel Sportsbook's odds. This 6 p.m. ET clash also features an over/under of 137.5 points, which is about average compared to Sunday's projected totals.

Oregon State vs Texas A&M Prediction & Pick

The Beavers have played well on the defensive end of the court, but will need to make improvements on offense if they want any shot of competing in the Pac-12. Oregon State is averaging 64.6 points per game (No. 289 in NCAA) on a 43.9% shooting mark (No. 164 in NCAA). It's simply been a mess.

Seeing the Beavers turn it all around against the Aggies would be surprising. Texas A&M allows only 58.7 points on a 33.1% shooting mark when playing at home this season. Head coach Buzz Williams' team also forces 18.0 opponent turnovers per game (No. 12 in NCAA), which makes a huge impact.

Texas A&M is riding a five-game home winning streak, so I'll trust the Aggies to get the job done.

Final Score Prediction: Oregon State: 61 | Texas A&M: 77

Oregon State vs Texas A&M Best Bet

It's worth noting that Texas A&M had been cruising prior to its loss to Boise State. The Aggies had won three straight games by at least 16 points and averaged a reliable 77.3 points per game during that span. Not only that, but they are also 5-0 against the spread (ATS) in their last five home games.

There's a lot to like about Texas A&M's chances of pulling away in this home game, too. Oregon State ranks 159th in total rebounding percentage (50.5%) and averages 14.6 turnovers per contest (T-No. 278 in NCAA). That results in less second chance points for the Beavers and more for the opponent.

Bet: Texas A&M Aggies -13.5 (-118)
