Oklahoma State vs. Cincinnati Prediction

I’m on the under here. Oklahoma State’s performance against BYU was out of the norm as this is an Oklahoma State team not necessarily known for their offensive prowess. On the other side of the coin, Cincinnati’s got some of the worst shooting percentages in the Big 12, and it’s a wonder how they’ve been able to put up some of the offensive numbers they have to this point. This feels like a low-scoring battle, a first to 70 wins kind of game, so give me the under here.
