The Houston Cougars will be taking on the Oklahoma State Cowboys on Saturday, December 18th.
The tip-off is set for 7:00 ET from Dickies Arena.
The Cougars started off as a 8.5 point favorite and that number is now up to 9.5. The total has gone from 137 to 134.
Houston has started off the year very well. I definitely feel they could hang with anyone in the country at the moment.
The Cougars took care of the LA-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns on Tuesday by a score of 71-56. They will be in for a bigger challenge on Saturday when they face off against the Cowboys.
This team has faced a lot of weak teams, but they have also faced off with some solid competition. If they keep up the pace they are on now, they should have a very good year when all is said and done.
The offense was very effective and efficient in the win over the Cajuns. Five different players ended up reaching double figures and the leading scorer was Josh Carlton with 17 points and 9 rebounds. Also, Jamal Shead had 16 points and 5 assists.
Oklahoma State Cowboys
Oklahoma State may not be getting a ton of attention, but they have had a solid season so far. I do feel they will eventually be ranked in the top 25.
The Cowboys come into this game with a record of 7-3. They have faced some tough teams, but nobody on the level of the Cougars. They will be in for a big challenge on Saturday.
This squad last played on Monday, where they beat the Cleveland State Vikings by a score of 98-93. The game was a little closer than they would have liked, but they will take any win they can get.
Both Bryce Williams and Avery Anderson had 29 points in the win over the Vikings. Also, Kalib Boone chipped in 13 points and 8 rebounds.

Free Houston Cougars vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys NCAAB Summary:
I expect Houston to play a good and complete game in this one.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Houston ATS
Houston is the better team here and they need to show it. I get that they are going on the road in a tough environment, but they need to take care of business.
Look, the Cowboys are a good team, but they are not on the level of the Cougars. As the game goes on, I just feel that Houston will be too much for them to handle.
The 9.5 may seem high here, but I like it. If Houston is on their game, the game should really not be all that close. I feel like their offensive attack will be too much to handle in this one.
Give me the Cougars laying the points here.
