Roberto Nelson is the Beavers leading scorer averaging 20.9 points per game. Devon Collier is averaging 13.7 points and 5.9 rebounds, Angus Brandt is averaging 12.7 points, and Hallice Cooke is averaging 7.8 points.

Oregon State is 5-1 at home in Pac-12 play.
The Washington Huskies have lost five of their last six games as they have watched their season slip away. Washington is 6-8 in the Pac-12 and they are 2-10 away from home this season. C.J. Wilcox leads the Huskies averaging 18.4 points per game.

Oregon State is 8-3-2 against the spread in their last 13 home games, 2-7 against the spread following a game that they covered the spread, and 2-5 against the spread in their last seven Saturday games. Washington is 1-5 against the spread following a game that they covered the spread, 4-1 against the spread following a loss, and 5-2 against the spread against a team with a winning record. The home team has covered the point spread in six of the last eight meetings of these two.
My free pick in this one is going to be on the total and at 148 I have to go with the under. My stronger pick is on who will cover the spread and I will post that pick in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
