The Oklahoma State Cowboys are 20-15 (8-10) this season after they defeated Eastern Washington by a score of 71-60 in their last game. Oklahoma State shot 48.1% from the field and made 11 three pointers in the win. The Oklahoma State Cowboys are averaging 68.5 points per game, 65.9 points against per game, 37.2 rebounds per game, and 12.7 assists per game. Bryce Thompson has led the Cowboys this season with 11.9 points per game, 2.6 rebounds per game, and 2.5 assists per game. Oklahoma State is shooting 43.2% from the field, 69.4% on free throws, and 31.1% on three pointers this year. 

North Texas Preview

The North Texas Mean Green are 28-7 (16-4) this season after they defeated Sam Houston State by a score of 75-55 in their last game. North Texas shot 52% from the field and made 16 three pointers in the win. The North Texas Mean Green are averaging 64.7 points per game, 55.6 points against per game, 33.7 rebounds per game, and 11.5 assists per game. Tylor Perry has led the Mean Green this season with 17.1 points per game, 3.4 rebounds per game, and 2.1 assists per game. North Texas is shooting 43.6% from the field, 75% on free throws, and 35.1% on three pointers this year.


North Texas is 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games and 5-12 ATS in their last 17 Tuesday games. The under is 14-6 in North Texas’ last 20 Tuesday games. Oklahoma State is 2-6 ATS in their last 8 Tuesday games and 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games. The under is 4-0 in Oklahoma State’s last 4 games. The underdog is 3-1-1 ATS in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings. 


Both of these teams come into this game with momentum after winning their first two games of the tournament, but Oklahoma State will have the benefit of playing at home. North Texas has been elite on defense this season, allowing only 54 points against per game. Oklahoma State has also been solid on defense, but they are allowing 62 points against per game. Both teams shot the ball very well in their last game, with North Texas making 16 three pointers and Oklahoma State making 11 three pointers, and I think we are going to see more solid shooting here. Despite both teams playing tight defense, I like the over in this one. North Texas has scored at least 69 points in four straight games and Oklahoma State is going to have a more balanced attack than their last two opponents. Take the over here.
