Oklahoma State vs Oklahoma Prediction & Pick

Oklahoma is the better team heading into this matchup. The Sooners' two wins in their last three outings came against TCU and Iowa State — both ranked schools. Meanwhile, the Cowboys lost to the Horned Frogs by 25 just over two weeks ago and have lost against their last four ranked opponents.

Oklahoma also has recent impressive defensive performances under its belt, holding two of its last three opponents to 60 or fewer points. On the other hand, Oklahoma State hasn't been able to stop a nosebleed, allowing an 81.2 PPG clip over its previous six contests. The Sooners might not have the best offense, but their 74 points against TCU show that they can take advantage of the Cowboys.

In what should be a competitive affair, side with Oklahoma.

Final Score Prediction: Oklahoma: 71 | Oklahoma State: 68

Oklahoma State vs Oklahoma Best Bet

I recommend backing the over on tonight's 134.5-point total. Neither team is a stranger to seeing more points scored than projected. After all, the over is 8-3 in Oklahoma's last 11 games while being 5-1 in Oklahoma State's last six. On top of that, the Cowboys have seen the over hit in all but two of their last 12 Big 12 matchups.

With Oklahoma State's defense also looking anything but reliable lately, I'm taking the points tonight.

Bet: Over 134.5 (-110)
