The Vanderbilt Commodores and Oklahoma Sooners meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Lloyd Noble Center.

The Vanderbilt Commodores look for a big road win to get a game above a .500 record.

Darius Garland is averaging 16.2 points and 3.8 rebounds while Simisola Shittu is averaging 13.4 points and 2.2 assists.

The Vanderbilt Commodores are allowing 31 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37.6 rebounds per game. The Vanderbilt Commodores have lost three of their last four road games.

The Oklahoma Sooners could also use a win here after splitting their last eight games. The Oklahoma Sooners are averaging 73.4 points on 44.8 percent shooting and allowing 67.2 points on 38.8 percent shooting. Christian James is averaging 16.5 points and 1.9 assists while Brady Manek is averaging 11.3 points and 6.9 rebounds.

The Commodores are 6-14 ATS in their last 20 road games, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Saturday games and 15-34 ATS in their last 49 games overall. The Sooners are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Southeastern, 9-3 ATS in their last 12 home games and 15-5-2 ATS in their last 22 games overall. The under is 8-3 in Sooners last 11 overall.

The Vanderbilt Commodores come into this game shooting just 40 percent from the field and losing by an average of 10.4 points in their last five games. The Oklahoma Sooners are one of the top defensive teams in the country and are winning by an average of 10.2 points at home this season. Oklahoma is also an impressive 14-3-2 ATS on the season and 6-2 ATS at home. Th Sooners are also 10-2 ATS this season as a favorite. Sometimes it's wise to blindly play the strong trends until they stop cashing, and Oklahoma has been one of the most profitable teams in college basketball. I'll eat the chalk.

Pick:
Oklahoma -10
