This is a very tricky game for the Cowboys, and we think that they could ultimately get the shaft in this one and be bounced out of the Top 25 as a result. Oklahoma State has had it rough over the course of the last few games, beating Oklahoma in overtime and losing a nail biter in two overtimes against Kansas during the week. Getting up for a road game in Morgantown is going to be tough. The truth of the matter is that the Mountaineers haven’t played terrible basketball of late and are quietly back to .500. They don’t have a big time win over one of the big boys in the Big XII, but they did lose to Kansas by just five and Kansas State by just a point in this building, and they have only suffered one blowout loss at home at the hands of the Sooners back on January 5th. The ‘Neers are a strong defensive outfit that really could frustrate the heck out of the Pokes, and we think that the oddsmakers are trying to bait you to take the visitors as short favorites. We aren’t buying it. Take WVU.
