Oklahoma is 8-1 at home this season but they’ve got a potentially tough matchup with a sneaky good Baylor team on Monday. The Bears come into the contest with a 4-game win streak while Oklahoma has gone 2-2 their last four.
Baylor is 3rd in the Big 12 while Oklahoma sits down the way a bit in 8th due to a poor 3-4 conference record. The Bears lost by just 2 points last year in Norman, do they have the talent to keep it close again this season?
Baylor comes at you with a versatile attack as with starters Makai Mason (15.5) and Mario Kegler (14.5) leading the way in scoring. The Bears don’t put up a ton of offense as they rank 210th in the country in scoring.
What Baylor will do is play stifling defense. Scott Drew’s team is giving up just 64.5 ppg and has held 3 of the last 4 opponents to 70 points or less. Oklahoma has been held to 72 or less in 3 of 4 so Monday’s contest leans towards the ‘under’ side based on those trends.
The Bears play the Sooners tight for whatever reason. They also put up a lot of points vs. the Oklahoma defense averaging 91.5 ppg in the two contests last season. Baylor dropped a 96-98 contest in Norman last season, completely destroying the O/U of 153.5 by 40 points.
Oklahoma needs to put to bed these demons that they have against the Bears. Sure they went 1-1 vs. Baylor last season but they had to sweat out a 98-96 win last January and that was with 44 points by the NBA bound Trae Young.
Do the Sooners have anybody to pick up Young’s departed scoring this year? OU did put up 86 points in their last game behind 21 points from Christian James. The guard has put up 20+ in 3 of 4 and he’s got some scoring help in the form of Brady Manek who is averaging 15.5 his last two.
Another issue that gives Oklahoma worries on Monday is the fact that they lost 64-87 to Baylor when the teams played in Waco. Baylor shot over 50% from the field that game while their defense held OU to 37% shooting. The Sooners will shoot better at home, but the Bears have to like their chances.
