Oklahoma State vs. West Virginia College Basketball Prediction
While I do see some value in taking the underdog in this matchup (the road team is also 8-2 against the spread in the last 10 meetings), the best bet in my eyes is the over. The over is 5-0 in the Cowboys’ last five road games, is 18-7-2 in their last 27 games overall and is 28-8-1 in their last 37 games following an ATS win.
On the other side, the over is 7-1 in the Mountaineers’ last eight home games, is 9-2 in their last 11 games overall and is 9-2 in their last 11 games coming off a win. The over is also 4-0 in West Virginia’s last four home games when facing an opponent like Oklahoma State that has a winning record on the road.
