Tonight we are looking forward to the matchup between the NCAA Oklahoma State Cowboys (19-7) at the Texas Longhorns (21-6) another great Big 12 College Basketball betting matchup. Watch for the NCAA Basketball betting odds to be rapidly changing on this game. Texas is (7-5) in the Big 12 play and are in a three way tie for fifth place. They are respectively ranked 21st in the country but that a long way from the number one ranking they enjoyed earlier this season. The longhorns have won two of their last three games but it has been against two teams Nebraska and Texas Tech who are lower in the standings. Their key player is Damion James, one of the best in the country, but he needs some help since they have lost three of their last five games, and they are well aware that it takes a team effort in every single game played.
When it comes to College Basketball betting and the basketball betting lines we also have to consider Oklahoma State Cowboys who are tied with Texas for fifth place in the Big 12 in conference play and are still trying to deal with a 12 point loss dealt to them in an earlier game this season. James Anderson is the leading scorer for OS averaging 22.8 points per game and Marshall Moses has 8.9 rebounds per game. The Cowboys will have to capture the boards this time against Texas to win.
Even though the Longhorns dominate the Cowboys in their first matchup, the teams are much closer overall than shown by their records and their place in the standings. It appears that our basketball betting line at the moment making Texas the favorite by nine points may be just a bit optimistic and generous for Longhorn backers.
As we watch the NCAA Basketball betting lines and odds we must keep in mind that the Oklahoma State Cowboys have a real Jewel in their James Anderson who scored 31 points in Saturday’ victory over Baylor. He has surpassed the 30 points per game nine times during his career, the most of any active Big 12 conference player and has earned the nickname of “Big Game James” for his knack of performing at his best when it matters the most. Along with first-team all-league honors, he is a leading candidate for Big 12 Player of the Year and should contend for All-American honors as well.
