The Oklahoma Sooners and Oklahoma State Cowboys meet Wednesday in the college basketball Big 12 Tournament First Round at the T-Mobile Center. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Oklahoma Sooners are averaging 68.3 points on 46.5 percent shooting and allowing 67.9 points on 43.5 percent shooting. Grant Sherfield is averaging 16.1 points and 2.5 rebounds, while Tanner Groves is averaging 10.1 points and 7 rebounds. Jalen Hill is dishing 1.4 assists and Milos Uzan is grabbing 2.7 rebounds. The Oklahoma Sooners are shooting 35.4 percent from beyond the arc and 73.4 percent from the free throw line. The Oklahoma Sooners are allowing 31.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 29.7 rebounds per game.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys are averaging 69.5 points on 43.9 percent shooting and allowing 66.8 points on 40.3 percent shooting. Bryce Thompson is averaging 11.9 points and 2.7 rebounds, while Kalib Boone is averaging 11.5 points and 5.1 rebounds. Avery Anderson III is the third double-digit scorer and John-Michael Wright is grabbing 2.8 rebounds. The Oklahoma State Cowboys are shooting 31.8 percent from beyond the arc and 69.9 percent from the free throw line. The Oklahoma State Cowboys are allowing 32 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.1 rebounds per game.

The Sooners are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 neutral site games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games. The Cowboys are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 neutral site games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 7-3-1 in Sooners last 11 overall. The over is 9-2-1 in Cowboys last 12 overall.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys are the better team, and they beat the Sooners twice this season, but I wouldn’t count the Sooners out here. Oklahoma is playing some of its best ball of the season right now and is better than its record as it has several close losses to quality teams. This is also a rivalry game where numbers can often be thrown out the window. Give me the Sooners and the free bucket.
