The Oklahoma Sooners will look to bounce back after a bad loss earlier this week when they host the Oklahoma State Cowboys on Saturday in Basketball Bedlam.

Oklahoma (14-6, 9-5 Big 12) came up short against the Kansas State Wildcats on Tuesday despite Kansas State having a 6-18 overall record coming in. Oklahoma led by six points with less than four minutes left but let the lead slip away. Austin Reaves led the Sooners with 25 points on 9 of 18 shooting from the floor. The Sooners had won three straight games before the loss.

Oklahoma State (15-6, 8-6 Big 12) has won three in a row and is coming off a 74-69 home overtime victory over the Texas Tech Red Raiders on Monday. The team’s leading scorer Cade Cunningham scored 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting from the floor. Defensively, the Cowboys come in with the 18th-best unit in the country in adjusted efficiency, and still having a chance of playing in postseason due to NCAA violations despite a previous ban. There’s plenty of reason to finish strong.

The Best Bet

This is the first of back-to-back games between the two in-state rivals with the Bedlam foes meeting again in Stillwater on Monday.

The Cowboys are rolling and with a limited number of games left with their postseason ban, they’re kicking into overdrive to try to finish the season strong and showcase Cunningham before he leaves for the NBA Draft. With that being said, OSU makes this a tight game and covers in Norman.

Pick: Oklahoma State + 4.5
