Its the Battle of the Bedlam Series Saturday as Oklahoma hosts Oklahoma State in a Big 12 battle. The Cowboys have won five of their last seven games and three in a row overall. Oklahoma has won eight of their last 10 games.
Oklahoma is coming off arguably its worst loss of the season on the road against Kansas State. The Sooners lost to the Wildcats 62-57 Tuesday and shot just 4 of 20 from deep and 39.3 percent from the field. The Sooners held a six point lead with under three minutes to go but blew the lead.
Austin Reaves has been a sparkplug for the Sooners in recent games. Reaves has been arguably the best player on the Sooners and leads the Sooners with 17.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 4.9 assists a game. Reaves has scored over 70 points in his last three games.
The Sooners currently have the 12th lowest turnover rate in college basketball, turning the ball over just 15.3 percent of the time.
The Sooners are 45th in the nation in offensive efficiency and 20th in defensive rating. The Sooners average 74.9 points a game while allowing 67.3 points a night.
Oklahoma State Cowboys
The Cowboys won 74-69 in overtime against Texas Tech in their last game. The Red Raiders shot just 2 of 10 in overtime and the Cowboys forced four turnovers.
Cade Cunningham has helped lead the turnaround for the Cowboys. The star freshman point guard put up 20 points in the last game and is looking like a consensus number one pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. Cunningham averages 18.7 points per game.
Oklahoma State has the 16th best defense in the country and does a good job forcing turnovers and limiting the outside shot for opponents. The Cowboys hold opponents to just 31.2 percent from the arc and hold opposing teams to a 45.2 effective field goal percentage.

Free Oklahoma Sooners vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys NCAAB Prediction:
Oklahoma State has notoriously struggled in Norman, and I expect the same here. The Sooners will come out with a lot of intensity following the loss to Kansas State and show why they are still a top-10 team in the country.
The Cowboys struggle to take care of the ball and will be exploited by the Sooners defense. These are two defensive minded teams and scoring shouldn’t be easy for either team.
