The Oklahoma Sooners and Oklahoma State Cowboys meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the Gallagher-Iba Arena.

The Oklahoma Sooners could use a victory here after losing four of their last six games. The Oklahoma Sooners are averaging 73.6 points on 44.5 percent shooting and allowing 67.6 points on 38.7 percent shooting. Christian James is averaging 17.2 points and 1.9 assists while Brady Manek is averaging 11.1 points and 7.1 rebounds. Miles Reynolds is dishing 1.4 assists and Kristian Doolittle is grabbing 6.5 rebounds. The Oklahoma Sooners are shooting 34.2 percent from beyond the arc and 66.9 percent from the free throw line. The Oklahoma Sooners are allowing 31.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37 rebounds per game. The Oklahoma Sooners have split their last six road games.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys look for a spark of consistency after splitting their last eight games. The Oklahoma State Cowboys are averaging 69.8 points on 43.2 percent shooting and allowing 69.8 points on 40.6 percent shooting. Cameron McGriff is averaging 13.6 points and 8.3 rebounds while Lindy Waters III is averaging 11.7 points and 2.8 assists. Thomas Dziagwa is the third double-digit scorer and Michael Weathers is grabbing 2.8 rebounds. The Oklahoma State Cowboys are shooting 37.7 percent from beyond the arc and 67.4 percent from the free throw line. The Oklahoma State Cowboys are allowing 33 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.3 rebounds per game. The Oklahoma State Cowboys have won five of their last eight home games.

The Sooners are 6-0-2 ATS in their last 8 road games, 6-14-1 ATS in their last 21 vs. Big 12 and 13-3-2 ATS in their last 18 games overall. The Cowboys are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. Big 12, 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Sooners are 12-4 ATS in the last 16 meetings and the home team is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The under is 34-16-1 in Cowboys last 51 overall. The under is 12-5 in Sooners last 17 overall.

The home team has won each of the last five meetings between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. However, the Sooners beat the Cowboys by 10 points just two weeks ago and enters this matchup on the road as the much better team. The Oklahoma Sooners are 13-3-2 ATS this season and 7-1-2 ATS on the road. Oklahoma has had some decent road success overall this season, while Oklahoma State is highly inconsistent, just 6-12 ATS on the season and is shooting just 39.6 percent from the field in its last five games. These aren't the same Oklahoma State Cowboys from past seasons and they're a less attractive option with the lack of offense. I'll lay the bucket with the Oklahoma Sooners on the road.

Pick:
Oklahoma Sooners -3
