Baylor vs Oklahoma State College Basketball Betting Preview
With plenty of question marks surrounding how Baylor would be able to replace forward Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua, the Bears were able to look solid in their first full game without him. Baylor won comfortably over a fiesty TCU team, 72-62. The Bears will now face a slight step up in competition and need guys like Jeremy Sochan to continue to step up off the bench. The big question will be how much does fatigue factor in for the rest of the season. If the Bears continue to play just seven deep like they did against TCU, they will find themselves in trouble and fading at the end of games for the rest of the year.
Oklahoma State has rebounded from a stretch where they lost five of six nicely by winning two of their last three. Most recently, the Cowboys knocked off Kansas State 82-79. Oklahoma State’s success lately has hinged on their defense. It has been problematic all season and has given up over 67 points per game. In their last four games, they’ve allowed 76 or more points in three of them. Against a team as stout defensively as Baylor, Oklahoma State has to improve defensively to have much of a shot to win.

Baylor vs Oklahoma StatePrediction | College Basketball Betting Picks
Over their last four games, Oklahoma State has given up 72.5 points per game (PPG). In their last four games, Baylor is averaging 75 PPG. If that serves as any indication, it’s that the Bears are going to put up a lot of points in this game. It seems almost a given that Baylor will score at least 70 points.
Oklahoma State’s offense has been firing on all cylinders lately as they average 74.5 PPG over their last four. With two high octane offenses ready to face off with only one team sporting even an average defense, this should be a high-scoring affair. Take advantage of an oddly low total line and bet the over.
