Oklahoma State vs Texas A&M Betting Odds – Anderson, Cowboys pick up big win on the road in the Big 12

NCAA Basketball Odds: Pick Oklahoma State


Online betting players will be in for an intriguing matchup on Wednesday, when two of the Big 12’s second-tier teams clash in College State. Oklahoma State and Texas A&M are two of the teams outside of Kansas and Kansas State looking to make some noise in the postseason, and the Cowboys are coming off a big win over the Jayhawks. Look for them to ride that momentum to another win, thanks to their shooting star.

WHAT: NCAA basketball betting
WHEN: Wednesday, March 3, 9:00 PM ET
WHERE: Reed Arena, College Station, TX
KEY STAT: Oklahoma State has won six of their last nine at Texas A&M


The Storyline: Oklahoma State vs Texas A&M Betting Odds
The Cowboys (20-8, 8-6) upset then-No.1 Kansas 85-77, and that’s a win that probably sealed their spot in the NCAA Tournament. The No.23 Aggies (20-8, 9-5) pulled off their own big win, rolling to a 74-58 victory over Texas. The Cowboys will pull even with the Aggies with a win, and these two are both in the running for the fourth seed in the Big 12 Tournament, which would earn them a bye.


Offensive Matchups: Oklahoma State vs Texas A&M Betting Odds
James Anderson may be the best guard in the country you’ve never heard of, and the junior has scored 20 points or more in four of his last five games. The one time he didn’t, the Cowboys lost to Texas, and that’s the problem with Oklahoma State: if Anderson has an off night, they’re in trouble. The thing is, he doesn’t have many off-nights.
Donald Sloan is the main guy at Texas A&M, as the Aggies don’t pass the ball around often, although they don’t turn it over much. Bryan Davis is their main inside presence, and the Aggies really should try to get the ball to him more often. He battled foul trouble against Texas, which has been a problem for him lately.

Betting Edge:
Oklahoma State

Defensive Matchups: Oklahoma State vs Texas A&M Betting Odds
Defense isn’t the Cowboys’ strong suit, especially from long-range, where opponents are hitting almost 36% of their three-point attempts against Oklahoma State. They don’t block many shots, or get many steals, and they commit a lot of fouls. They made a couple of big stops against Kansas, but this game was won because of their offense.
The Aggies play more of a team game on defense, choosing not to take many chances at that end of the floor. They held Texas to 36.8% from the floor, playing very disciplined defense, and they outrebounded the Longhorns, led by eight from Davis. It’s not flashy, but it’s effective.

Betting Edge:
Texas A&M

Coaching Matchup: Oklahoma State vs Texas A&M Betting Odds
Travis Ford has the Cowboys rounding into form at the right time, and Oklahoma State could be a darkhorse in your sportsbook for the Big 12 tournament. Ford has done a great job of creating an offense around Anderson, now he just has to get the Cowboys to hunker down on defense.
Mark Turgeon would love a bye in the Big 12 tournament, but his Aggies just need to navigate this last stretch against the Oklahoma teams. Texas A&M bounced back from losses against Kansas and Baylor to beat Texas, and now they have to ride that into the postseason.

Betting Edge:
Draw

Betting Prediction: Oklahoma State vs Texas A&M Betting Odds
The Aggies will be favored at home, especially after the big win over Texas, and these two have split their last 10 meetings. Oklahoma State has won six of their last nine in College Station, and they’re looking for a season sweep after a 76-69 win at home over the Aggies on January 27th. Anderson had 19 points, but the Cowboys also got 24 points from Obi Muonelo, and they’ll need someone else to step up like Muonelo did because of the attention that Anderson gets. Oklahoma State also shot 57.9% from the floor, and while they won’t be that hot, their Anderson-led offense gives them the edge, even on the road.
