Bet on college basketball fans know that since both teams are in the middle of the conference pack they must pick up the pace and win college basketball bets.The Oklahoma State Cowboys are in their worst bet on college basketball role as they have struggled big time on the road and as a dog while the Texas Longhorns also have struggled in this role for college basketball bets both as a host and a chalk.
The Oklahoma State Cowboys have been in a bet on college basketball free fall as of late which leaves them basically on life support for a post season berth. The Cowboys had a bet on college basketball record of 14-8 straight up but were just 5-10-1 against the spread.
Worse still, Okie State was just 1-4 against the spread in road action and was a putrid 1-8 against the spread as a dog. The Cowboys will “limp in” to this one having lost six of their last seven games against the spread. Okie State is a team of extremes as they ranked 5th overall nationally on offense and a horrific 318th overall in the nation for defense.
For those who bet on college basketball that is a dangerous combination to try and handicap. Oklahoma State is coming off a 67-78 loss at Kansas on February 7 as 10.5-point dogs. For those who bet on college basketball the Texas Longhorns are respected as a program that is consistently in the “Big Dance” each March.
That being said Texas has been less than powerful this season and a notch below their usual Big 12 title contender status. The Horns had an overall bet on college basketball record of 15-7 straight up and 8-11 against the spread.
Texas has been a bad home team to bet on college basketball with as they have covered just two out of nine as a host. Texas was also just 7-10 as a chalk so far this season.
