Baylor vs. Oklahoma State Live TV: Big XII Network
This is one of these games that could be brutal for the bubble. Oklahoma State clearly doesn’t have any troubles right now, knowing that it is going to be one of the top seeds in the NCAA Tournament. However, the rest of the bubble is going to be paying close attention, knowing that Baylor is going to be one of those teams that could play its way into the tourney, or play its way out. Losing this game would likely be the end of the season for the Bears, so this game is of utmost importance. The Cowboys have consistently been one of the highest scoring teams in the Big XII outside of Iowa State, and we think that it is ridiculous that they are only laying two and a half against a Baylor team that has been insanely inconsistent this year. When you look back at Baylor this year, the team just hasn’t beaten anyone notable. Sure, there was that blowout victory over Kansas to end the regular season, but the last win for the Bears of any note came way back on January 21st. We do have to note that Baylor beat Okie State and home and lost in overtime in Stillwater, but we think that this is a matter of revenge for the Cowboys, who will end the Bears’ season.
Baylor vs. Oklahoma State Pick: Oklahoma State Cowboys -2.5
Big XII Second Round Prediction: Oklahoma State 73 – Baylor 66
