Oklahoma State Cowboys vs West Virginia Mountaineers Las Vegas Odds and NCAA Basketball Predictions

Winning back-to-back games revived the Big 12 title hopes for No. 19 West Virginia. It received some help from Oklahoma State, too.

The Cowboys, having pulled off a stunning upset at league-leading Kansas last weekend, carry similar hopes into the WVU Coliseum on Saturday.

Oklahoma State (14-10, 4-7 Big 12) sports the conference's worst RPI at 107 yet held second-half leads in road games vs. Texas Tech, Arkansas and Kansas State. It also led West Virginia by seven points with 13 minutes left in Stillwater before falling 85-79 on Dec. 29.

The rematch finds the Mountaineers (18-6, 7-4) only a game behind No. 7 Texas Tech and No. 10 Kansas in the league standings. Their timely shots have begun falling, their defensive intensity has escalated, and their mojo has returned as evidenced by a 38-point drubbing of Kansas State and Monday's 75-73 win at No. 17 Oklahoma.

These victories transpired despite Bob Cousy Award finalist Jevon Carter slumping through 7-of-25 shooting and missing all eight of his 3-point tries. Carter's contributions remained steady in other areas with eight steals and 19 assists.

Carter still tops the Mountaineers in scoring at 16.6 per game, though guard Daxter Miles (12.1), center Sagana Knoate (10.7) and forwards Lamont West (10.8) and Esa Ahmad (10.0) provide ample support.

While West Virginia has won six of the last seven in the Oklahoma State series, the outlier was an upset loss in Morgantown last season. Cowboys guard Jeffrey Carroll scored 20 points that day and remains the team's leading scorer at 15.5 per game.

First-year Cowboys head coach Mike Boynton, after inheriting a team picked to finish last in the league, has it on pace for an NIT bid. The shocking win at Phog Allen Fieldhouse temporarily had fans entertaining grander aspirations until Oklahoma State stumbled at home against Baylor 67-56.

Point guard Kendall Smith (11.6 points, 3.0 assists), a graduate transfer who previously played at UNLV and Cal State Northridge, is averaging nearly 17 points over his last five games.
