Oklahoma State @ Baylor

Current Records: Oklahoma State 8-7; Baylor 15-1

What to Know

The Oklahoma State Cowboys will hit the road for the third straight game as they head to Ferrell Center at 5 p.m. ET Saturday. The teams split their matchups last year, with the #1 Baylor Bears winning the first 81-70 at home and the Cowboys taking the second 83-74.

Oklahoma State suffered a grim 78-57 defeat to the Texas Tech Red Raiders on Thursday. Guard Bryce Thompson (14 points) was the top scorer for Oklahoma State.

Meanwhile, it was close but no cigar for the Bears as they fell 65-62 to Texas Tech on Tuesday. One thing holding Baylor back was the mediocre play of guard Matthew Mayer, who did not have his best game: he played for 26 minutes but put up just seven points on 3-for-10 shooting.

Oklahoma State have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the 14.50 point spread they are up against. Those betting on them against the spread shouldn't have high expectations for them since the team is 1-3 ATS when expected to lose.

The losses put the Cowboys at 8-7 and Baylor at 15-1. Two stats to keep an eye on: Oklahoma State has allowed their opponents an average of 9.1 steals per game, the 352nd most in college basketball. To make matters even worse for Oklahoma State, Baylor comes into the contest boasting the 12th most steals per game in college basketball at 9.9. In other words, Oklahoma State will need to work extra hard to take care of the ball.
