Oklahoma State vs BYU Betting Prediction 

BYU comes into this matchup with a 9-8 conference record and they are tied for sixth in the Big 12 with TCU. The Cougars have been very good at home and have won five straight home games. Oklahoma State is tied for last in the Big 12 with West Virginia and they have lost four games in a row. Oklahoma State did win the first meeting between these teams by a score of 93-83, but I think BYU will get revenge at home. Take the Cougars here.
