Both Baylor and Oklahoma State look to rebound from their previous game as they meet in Stillwater on Wednesday night.
Baylor gave all they had against Oklahoma, but the Sooners were too much in an 82-72 decision.
Oklahoma State had a bad loss added to their resume as they went into Kansas State and got absolutely throttled, 89-73 as their defense completely disappeared.
#18 Baylor looks to get back on track and avoid what happened to Kansas back on 1/19 when they take on the Cowboys in Stillwater on Wednesday.
Baylor currently sits in a 3 way tie for first with Oklahoma and West Virginia for the top spot in the Big 12, but they’ve lost tie breakers with both, making every game that much more important.
Baylor will look to continue their unselfishness as they are the best team in the nation when it comes to assists. The Bears rank #1 as they average 20.8 assists per game. They currently lead the Big 12 with a 1.62 assist to turnover ratio.
However, over their last 3, the Bears have just 48 assists to 49 turnovers as they look to change their fortunes here.
A win over the Cowboys would give them a season series sweep and it would match their best start in Big 12 conference history.
The Cowboys are such a crapshoot when it comes to conference play.
They’ve shown signs of spectacular play, but they’ve also shown signs like last week where they look horrendous. Oklahoma State has put up much better fights at home against top teams, making this one a very intriguing matchup.
They’ve taken on Oklahoma and Kansas, two of the top teams in the nation, in their previous two home games and took the Sooners to the wire in a 74-72 loss and then dismantled the Jayhawks 86-67.
Then there is also the Cowboys team that showed up last week at Kansas State. OSU shot just 41.8% from the field and made just 6 of the 21 3 pointers attempted.
Defensively, they allowed Kansas State to shoot 58% and 9 of 17 from behind the arc. That combination is a recipe for disaster and simply won’t cut it here against a Top 25 foe.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Bears are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games.
- Bears are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a double-digit loss at home.
- Cowboys are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss.
- Cowboys are 38-13-2 ATS in their last 53 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.
- Cowboys are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall.
Free CBB Prediction:
The Cowboys are simply a different team at home. They tend to feed off the crowd and step it up on both sides of the ball.
Expect them to keep this close throughout and have it come down to perimeter defense. They need to close out better on shooters and Baylor is not shy about hoisting the three.
