Big-12 play rolls on as the West Virginia Mountaineers face the Oklahoma Sooners in the season’s second matchup between these two teams.
The Sooners were able to defeat West Virginia in overtime in the first meeting between these squads, and the Mountaineers will be seeking revenge in this one.
West Virginia Mountaineers
You could say that Bob Huggins’ West Virginia team has one of the deepest rosters in terms of scoring in the country. The Mountaineers don’t have a superstar scorer averaging 20 points a game like Kentucky’s Malik Monk, but they do have five guys who score 10 or more per game.
The solid team offense has made the Mountaineers one of the top scoring teams in the country, averaging just over 87 points per game.
Sophomore forward Esa Ahmad is having a very good season, averaging 11.7 points on 50% shooting for the season. He’s been a very important piece of this Mountaineer team.
Guard Jevon Carter is playing great basketball as well. He’s averaging 11.7 points this year along with 4.3 rebounds and 4.5 assists. He’s also shooting 44% from the field along with 75% from the free throw line.
Defensively, this WVU team has been one of the top in the nation.
The Mountaineers give up just 66.5 points per game, putting them 55th in the country. For WVU to get the win over Oklahoma, the defense needs to continue playing extremely well and limit the Sooner offense.
After finding a way to eke out a win over West Virginia back in January, the Sooners haven’t won a game since.
Losing five straight, including a one-point loss to Texas and a two-point loss to Oklahoma State, the Sooners haven’t found a semblance of the quality of play that led to that win over the Mountaineers.
The Sooners must play better than they have over the last five games in order to keep this game close.
Offensively, the team hasn’t been bad. Oklahoma averages 75.1 points per game, and a lot of that is thanks to senior guard Jordan Woodard.
Woodard has been an important part of the Sooners squad, averaging 15.4 points per game. His shooting leaves a lot to be desired however, as he shoots just 39% from the field.
This poor shooting has hurt him over the past few games, as he has broken double figures just once in that stretch.
Oklahoma will need to help get Woodard going and use him to run the offense and keep this game close. If Oklahoma can keep it close down the stretch, there’s a chance for this Sooners team to take another one away from WVU.
CBB Betting Trends:
- West Virginia is 2-3 ATS in the last five games
- Oklahoma is 1-4 ATS in the last five games
Free West Virginia Mountaineers vs. Oklahoma Sooners NCAAB Prediction:
As good as West Virginia is, the team has had some close calls against teams that are clearly inferior. The team actually lost its first meeting against Oklahoma this year.
Despite that, the Mountaineers should come out of this one victorious. WVU gets the W here.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Oklahoma +9
Surprisingly, Oklahoma was able to get the best of West Virginia in the first matchup between these two teams. While I don’t believe that will happen again, I think the Sooners will play up to their competition and keep it close.
