Oklahoma State Cowboys vs West Virginia Mountaineers

Where: WVU Coliseum, Morgantown, West Virginia

When: Saturday, January 12, 2019 12:00 pm Eastern

The Big 12 Conference season is in full swing and we have the makings of a good game on Saturday when the Oklahoma State Cowboys travel to West Virginia and a match with the West Virginia Mountaineers. The Cowboys are off to a 1-2 Big-12 record and the Mountaineers have started out to a shaky, 0-3 start to conference play.

Oklahoma State Knocks off Texas!

Oklahoma State won their first conference game on Tuesday night, defeating Texas 61-58 for a solid home victory over a quality opponent. According to KenPom, the Cowboys have played the tenth strongest schedule in the country. Junior guard Lindy Waters III led the Cowboys with 19 points and nine rebounds and junior forward Cameron McGriff added 12 points, eight rebounds and two big blocked shots. The Cowboys shot 36 percent from the floor, 42 percent from long range and 75 percent from the free throw line in Cowboys huge home victory over Texas.

Oklahoma State has announced that senior guard Mike Cunningham has left the team for undisclosed personal reasons. Cunningham was averaging eight points per game and knocking down nearly two triples per night for the Cowboys this season.

The Cowboys are scoring an average of 69 points and allow an average of 68 points per game this season. Oklahoma State is shooting 43 percent from the floor, 37 percent from the three-point line and 67 percent from the charity stripe. The Cowboys are averaging a total of 36 rebounds, 14 assists and 15 turnovers per game this season.

Mountaineers Blow 21 Point Lead and Lose to Kansas State

West Virginia is off to a tough, 0-3 start to Big 12 Conference play. They had Kansas State right where they wanted them on Tuesday night, and blew a 21 point lead to lose their third conference game, 71-69. Junior forward Lamont West came off the bench to lead the Mountaineers with 21 points and three rebounds and freshman forward Derek Culver also came off the bench to score 17 points with 12 rebounds to lead the Mountaineers. West Virginia shot 45 percent from the floor, 45 percent from long range and 60 percent from the free throw line Tuesday night.

Junior forward Sagaba Konate is still out with a knee injury and won’t dress for Saturday’s home game with Oklahoma State. Konate is the Mountaineers leading scorer and rebounder and his presence is greatly missed.

The Mountaineers are scoring an average of 75 points and allowing an average of 71 points per game this season. West Virginia is shooting 42 percent from the field, 33 percent from three-point land and 68 percent from the charity stripe. The Mountaineers are averaging a total of 41 rebounds, 14 assists and 16 turnovers per game this season.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Even though Konate is out, the Mountaineers found a way to compete, and nearly took out Kansas State on the road. They blew a 21 point lead because they took their foot off the gas. Bob Huggins was angry and isn’t going to allow that to happen again either. I like Oklahoma State, but West Virginia is the better team and should cover on Saturday. I’m playing the Mountaineers on Saturday.

Prediction: Oklahoma State

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Neither side plays very fast, and I don’t think this game exceeds 145 points. The total isn’t posted yet, but that is where I see this contest going. Neither side has a positive assist to turnover ratio either, so there is also that to consider. At the end of the day, both teams are fairly decent at limiting points and both sides are fairly decent at chasing shooters off the three point line. I’m playing the under on 145 points or higher on Saturday.

Prediction: Under
