Why should you bet on the Cowboys?

The only way I take the Cowboys is if I have a line of at least 10 or 12 points. It’s true that in their loss to Texas Tech, the Cowboys were victimized by Toddrich Gotcher, who poured in a career high 24 points (21 in the second half), knocking down four of five three-pointers in the second half. Oklahoma State only has three wins in 14 Big 12 games so far and has lost seven of their last nine. The Cowboys are game opponents, rallying to keep games from getting out of hand, but the Sooners are much too good to lose this game straight up. The Cowboys could catch them napping and keep it close, though.

Why should you put your money on Oklahoma?

The Sonoers had been teetering a bit at the top of Big 12, having lost to Kansas and Texas Tech as part of dropping three out of four after having been #1 in the nation. However, they went to West Virginia and beat the #10 team in the nation easily. They made short work of the vaunted Mountaineer fullc-ourt press, and they dominated the inside, picking up nine blocked shots. They only turned the ball over nine times and outrebounded the Mountaineers 48-37. They have found their mojo and are set to deliver a whipping to the Cowboys.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

I like the Sooners to defend their home court with style, rolling to a 90-72 win over Oklahoma State.
