This Big XII basketball matchup features a couple of teams fighting to get out of the middle of the pack in conference. Each of these teams are also better defensively than they are offensively, so I do not expect a shootout tonight.

Event: (875) Baylor at (876) Oklahoma State
Date/Time: January 14, 2019 9PM EST
Play: Total Under 135.5 (+100)

Oklahoma State is 61st nationally in defensive efficiency and leads the Big-12 in 3pt shooting defense in conference play. On the other side, Baylor is 31st nationally in defensive efficiency, but is off to a slow start in conference play defensively. To their defense, the Bears have played three of the top offenses in the Big-12 to open the season.

Oklahoma State comes in to this game off their best offensive performance of the year, an 85-77 win at West Virginia in which they scored 1.27ppp. In their three other conference games they had not been able to score even 1ppp, so the explosion at West Virginia was definitely out of character. Baylor lost its 2nd leading scorer for the season, Tristan Clark, who was their top inside scorer and shot 75{84ccd47921e566787b7405b472ea36582b7bea78c60faedb5d55493d43c879f0} from the field. His loss makes them more of a perimeter team, where they shoot just 29.2{84ccd47921e566787b7405b472ea36582b7bea78c60faedb5d55493d43c879f0} for the year, 329th in the country. That doesnt project well against a solid Oklahoma State defense.

The pace should be fairly slow in Stillwater tonight and I expect the defenses to get the better of both offenses. Look to bet this one under the total.
