Big-12 play rolls on as the Oklahoma Sooners face the Baylor Bears in the season’s second matchup between these two teams.
The Bears had a resounding victory over Oklahoma in the first meeting between the teams, winning 76-50.
It’s been a very disappointing season for Lon Kruger’s Sooners basketball team. Sitting at 9-17 on the year and 3-11 in the Big 12, the team’s hopes for a conference championship and NCAA tournament run are all but over.
So, what has been the problem for Oklahoma this season? Defense, mostly. The team gives up 75.6 points per game, putting it 256th in the nation in that category.
The team has a decent offense, but it’s been extremely inconsistent this year. The team had an 89-point performance in a win against West Virginia earlier in the year, but put up just 50 against the team in their second meeting.
If the Sooners can’t get any consistency on the offensive end, there’s little hope of beating this Baylor team.
Senior Jordan Woodward leads the team in scoring and the Sooners will need a huge game from him. He’s averaging 14.6 points along with 4.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game.
He doesn’t shoot the ball extremely well – 38.5% from the field and 36.2% from three – but the team will need him to shoot a lot against Baylor.
With how good this Baylor defense is, it will be hard for Oklahoma to score against it. The Bears give up just 62.4 points per game, 13th in the nation in that category.
Baylor has been able to hold great offenses under their point averages and find ways to win games. The Bears beat Kansas by holding the team to 68 points earlier in the year.
The Bears aren’t a particularly explosive team on offense, but find ways to win thanks to clutch play down the stretch and the ability to force turnovers and limit good shots.
Junior Johnathan Motley leads the team in scoring, averaging nearly a double-double. He averages 16.8 points and 9.5 rebounds per game while shooting 51.9% from the field.
Guard Manu Lecomte has also been an important offensive player for Baylor. He’s averaging 12.9 points per game on 44.2% shooting. In the last meeting against Oklahoma, he had 14 points on 62.5% shooting.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Oklahoma is 2-5 ATS in the last seven games
- The Total has gone UNDER in five of Baylor’s last six games
Free Oklahoma Sooners vs. Baylor Bears NCAAB Prediction:
The Baylor defense will bring this one home for the Bears. With how inconsistent Oklahoma has been all year, it will be tough for the Sooners to keep it close against Baylor. Baylor gets the W at home.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Baylor -13
Baylor won by 26 in the first meeting against Oklahoma and I think the Sooners will play angry. However, Baylor will still cover here, thanks to the great defense.
