The Oklahoma State Cowboys are averaging 66.3 points on 40.5 percent shooting and allowing 62.3 points on 37.9 percent shooting. Lindy Waters III is averaging 12 points and 2.2 assists while Isaac Likekele is averaging 11.3 points and 4.6 rebounds. Yor Anei is grabbing 5.1 rebounds and Cameron McGriff is dishing 1.6 assists.

The Longhorns are 0-9 ATS in their last 9 games following a straight up win and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Cowboys are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Wednesday games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Longhorns last 5 overall. The under is 33-15 in Cowboys last 48 home games.
The Oklahoma State Cowboys play their best ball at home and Texas hasn't had a bunch of success outside of Austin, but I'm not laying chalk with a Cowboys team that's lost four of their last five and is losing by an average of six points during that stretch. The Texas Longhorns have a defense that travels and have won five of the last eight meetings against OK State. I'll take the free bucket, as Texas has a good chance to win this game outright.
