The UCF Knights are 16-14 (7-11) this season after they defeated TCU by a score of 79-77 in their last game. UCF was tied at 36 at the half, but they scored 43 points in the second half for the narrow win. The Knights shot 49.1% from the field and made 19 free throws in the game.

The Knights are scoring 71.3 points per game with 37.5 rebounds per game and 11.6 assists per game, while giving up 67 points against per game this season.

Oklahoma State vs UCF Betting Prediction

Oklahoma State comes into this matchup tied for last in the Big 12 standings and they have lost five games in a row, while UCF has played pretty well over their last five games. The Knights have picked up wins against TCU, Oklahoma State, and Texas Tech, while also being competitive with Houston and Iowa State in recent games. The Knights are only shooting 42.1% from the field, but should be able to take advantage of a bad Oklahoma State defense. UCF won the only meeting between these teams by a score of 77-71, just a few games ago. I like the Knights to beat Oklahoma State once again here, as they come into the tournament with a little bit of confidence.
