Oklahoma State cruised to an 82-31 home win Sunday afternoon over Southeast Louisiana to improve to 9-3 overall and 5-2 at home. The Cowboys led 47-19 at halftime on their way to the victory.

College Basketball Betting Trends

Oklahoma State

The over is 4-1 in the last five Cowboys Saturday games. The over is 11-4 in the last 15 OSU games following an ATS win.

Texas Tech

The over is 15-5 in the last 20 Red Raiders Saturday games. Texas Tech is 8-1 ATS in its last nine Saturday games.


Oklahoma State likes to play at a faster pace than the Red Raiders, but their bread and butter is on defense. With the early start time and the fact that both teams are inside the top 25 nationally in adjusted defensive efficiency, I think we are in store for a low-scoring affair in this contest. With OSU giving up only 31 points last night, holding teams down is clearly a point of pride. And we already know Texas Tech brings it defensively as evidenced by last season's national runner-up finish.
