The 2022-23 NCAA college basketball season continues on Thursday, Dec. 15 with a schedule that includes a west coast clash between the Seattle Redhawks and Oregon State Beavers.

Seattle's impressive start to the campaign continued with an 80-78 overtime victory against North Dakota on Saturday. Meanwhile, Oregon State lost for the sixth time in its last seven outings in the form of Sunday's 72-54 loss to Texas A&M.

Will Seattle improve to 8-1 with another solid effort on the road? Or does Oregon State have what it takes to finally break out of its funk once and for all?

Seattle vs Oregon State Prediction & Pick

Seattle might have lost its last eight games against Pac-12 teams, but the stage is set for that to change tonight. Oregon State has looked terrible, losing six of its last seven games. What's even worse is that the Beavers haven't been competitive more often than not, losing four of those outings by a double-digit margin.

Oregon State has also been careless with the ball this season, recording 14.3 turnovers per game (T-No. 267). The same can't be said for Seattle, averaging only 12.0 giveaways (T-No. 9), including only nine against North Dakota. The Redhawks a great at forcing turnovers, too, causing the opposition to cough up the ball an average of 13.5 times in road games.

Lastly, despite being a Pac-12 program, Oregon State is just 4-10 straight up in its last 14 games against WAC schools. The Beavers are too tough to trust because of their recent slump, making the Redhawks the likely victors here.

Final Score Prediction: Seattle: 73 | Oregon State: 68

Seattle vs Oregon State Best Bet

I do not doubt that Seattle can cover the 1.5-point spread tonight. The Redhawks boast a solid plus-4.3 scoring margin on the road, whereas the Beavers are a minus-8.4 in their last seven games alone.

Though both sides are 0-3 ATS in their respective last three outings, Seattle has been playing well enough to end that streak tonight. Look for the Redhawks to win this one by at least one basket.

Bet: Seattle -1.5 (-110)
