Oklahoma State vs. West Virginia
- Spread: West Virginia -1.5
- Over/Under: 138
- Time: 9:00 p.m. ET
- TV: ESPN2
Oklahoma State (9-4) is coming off an embarrassing 35-point loss at Texas Tech. The Cowboys have lost four of their past six games, including consecutive home games to Georgetown and Wichita State. They are only 6-7 against the spread, including 2-5 at home.
No. 16 West Virginia (11-2) is coming off a tough road loss at No. 3 Kansas, 60-53. The Mountaineers have played well on the road, including wins at Pittsburgh and Youngstown State. They are only 7-6 ATS but have covered four of their past five games including the loss against the Jayhawks.
Mountaineers head coach Bob Huggins has won four of his past five games in Stillwater.
However, West Virginia isn’t an offensive juggernaut that will blow anyone out.
