Road Team Can’t Cover In Big 12 Battle

Baylor will look to claim top spot in the Big 12 when they visit the Oklahoma State Cowboys Wednesday, but bettors should be weary of the Bears. The road team is just 4-14-1 ATS in the last 19 games between the Bears and Cowboys.

Shark Bites
  • Baylor is 3-19 SU in their last 22 games at Oklahoma State.
  • Oklahoma State is 1-5 SU and ATS in their past six games when underdogs of 2.5 points or less.
  • Baylor is 10-1 SU and 8-1-2 ATS in their last 11 games as faves against Oklahoma State.

Baylor is 2-1 SU in their last three outings, but they have not looked great doing so. The Bears, who lead the Big 12 in turnover differential, has turned the ball over 49 times in those games while registering one less assist. Rico Gathers had one of his best outings of the season when Baylor played Oklahoma State on January 5, with the senior notching 17 points and 17 rebounds.

It seems like a crapshoot as to which Oklahoma State team you will see in any given game. Will we see the Cowboys that started 1-4 in conference play or the team that beat then third ranked Kansas by 19 points? Point man Jawun Evans has been growing into his role as leader of the Oklahoma State offense with freshman averaging 21.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and 5.6 assists over the past four games.
