Oklahoma vs Oklahoma State Prediction & Pick

Big 12 fans are in for a treat here as both the Cowboys and Sooners currently sit on the bubble when it comes to the NCAA Tournament. A win on Wednesday would certainly help build a solid resume for when March rolls around. The edge has to be given to the home team here for a few different reasons.

Oklahoma is shooting 50.6% from the floor at the Lloyd Noble Center this season and owns a +8.5 average scoring margin across 11 home games. Oklahoma State comes to town ranked 311th in turnovers per game (14.5), 219th in points per game (68.8) and 210th in shooting percentage (43.6%).

Keep in mind the Sooners have also won 16 of their last 18 home games against the Cowboys.

Final Score Prediction: Oklahoma: 69 | Oklahoma State: 62

Oklahoma vs Oklahoma State Best Bet

As mentioned above, Oklahoma State is not a team that thrives on the offensive end of the court. The Cowboys' defense is what keeps them competitive, but it's a defense that is giving up over 11.0 more points per game on the road than it does at home. That is not going to get the job done in this rivalry.

Oklahoma State is 3-9 against the spread (ATS) in its last 12 games played on a Wednesday and 2-4 ATS in its last six games played in February. This pick isn't as much about backing the Sooners as it is about fading the Cowboys. Oklahoma State simply falls apart when put in rowdy road environments.

Bet: Oklahoma Sooners -3.5 (-110)
