The 2022-23 college basketball season continues on Sunday with a thrilling matchup between the Oklahoma State Cowboys and Virginia Tech Hokies. Oklahoma State is coming off a solid 65-51 win over Sam Houston State on Tuesday. Junior Bryce Thompson racked up a game-high 17 points.

Oklahoma State vs Virginia Tech Prediction & Pick

It's important to note that Oklahoma state's best win so far this season came against an inconsistent DePaul team. The Cowboys have faltered against their toughest competitors, namely Central Florida and UConn. They averaged only 60.0 points on a 34.2% shooting mark across those two losses.

Virginia Tech has stepped up when it matters the most, though. The Hokies have already taken down North Carolina and Penn State as their reliability on both ends of the court is improving. The Hokies shoot 49.5% from the floor (No. 16 in NCAA) and allow just 63.5 points per game (T-No. 49 in NCAA).

Virginia Tech has shown little reason not to trust them in big spots, so I'll back the Hokies on Sunday.

Final Score Prediction: Oklahoma State: 63 | Virginia Tech: 69

Oklahoma State vs Virginia Tech Best Bet

The Cowboys failed to shine through on offense during their two biggest games of the year. However, they held up on defense by giving up an average of 67.0 points against UCF and UConn. Meanwhile, the Hokies have allowed less than 65 points in three of their last four games. The under looks safe.

The total has hit the under in nine of Oklahoma state's last 13 games as well as in five of Virginia Tech's last six games. The under has also cashed in eight of the Cowboys' last 11 games against an ACC opponent. The Barclays Center crowd is surely in for a great game, but not a high-scoring one.

Bet: Under 136.5 Points (-110)
