Bet on NCAABIn a Tuesday night NCAA basketball betting match-up, Baylor takes on Oklahoma State. Baylor is going to do what it has not been able to accomplish since 1922 – sweep the season series.
The Baylor Bears are in a position where they need only two more wins to get to 20 total for the fourth season in a row, and they are currently on the bubble when it comes to the NCAA March Madness tournament.
Sports odds are predicting a close game tonight, with Oklahoma State being the slight favorite at -2 points. Oklahoma is also playing an important game here, as they need to make a strong showing in the Big 12 Conference tournament if they are to have much luck in the NCAA postseason. It is unlikely they make the cut for March Madness, however, despite a win on Saturday against Texas Tech.
Baylor has not found much success winning in Stillwater. Their record currently stands at 3 wins and 26 losses when playing on Oklahoma's home court. They have lost their last seven games in Stillwater. But the Bears are coming off of a win against Texas A&M on Saturday, and LaceDarius Dunn is averaging 20 points per game for the team. If they can hold the Cowboys to under 70 points, they may have a good chance at winning tonight.
Even if Oklahoma State wins their final two conference games of the season, they are unlikely to make the tournament cut-off. They are currently 5-9 in the Big 12, and winning these next two games would still give them a losing record at 7-9. Their home record is much better, however, as the Cowboys are 12-2 at home, with losses to Texas and Texas A&M.
This is an important basketball game for both teams, but Baylor might have a better chance of getting into the March Madness tournament if they can pull off a win tonight. Oklahoma State can derail the Bears' postseason hopes if the Cowboys win.
