Baylor Betting Preview

Baylor comes into this game with a 21-8 record and they have gone 15-13-1 against the spread. In the last game against the Texas Longhorns they struggled to start the game but they turned it on after falling behind, and they ended up winning 82-71. Jalen Bridges finished with 17 points and eight rebounds. Star freshman Keyonte George had to leave after six minutes with an ankle injury and he’s questionable for this game. Baylor is averaging 78.1 points while their defense is giving up 70 points per game. The offense is ranked 41st in the league while the defense is ranked 186th. 

Oklahoma State Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is Oklahoma State who sits with a 16-13 record overall and they have gone 14-15 against the spread. In the last game against Kansas State, the Cowboys were competitive, but they ended up losing 73-68. Kalib Boone finished with 18 points, three rebounds, and one assist. Oklahoma State is averaging 69.5 points while their defense is giving up 66.5 points per game. The offense is ranked 229th while the defense is ranked 82nd.

Baylor is 5-1 against the spread in their last six games. Oklahoma State is 0-4 against the spread in their last four games overall. The over is 8-2 in Oklahoma State’s last 10 games. The over is 4-1 in Oklahoma State’s last five home games. 

Shane’s Free Pick

Baylor looked quite impressive against Texas, and even if George isn’t able to go in this game, they are going to find a ton of success. I’m not sold on this Oklahoma State offense, and in the last game the Cowboys defense gave up 73 points. Baylor is going to run up the score and they will cover the spread.

Shane’s Pick Baylor -1.5
