Texas vs. Oklahoma State College Basketball Betting Odds

Texas vs. Oklahoma State College Basketball betting odds opened at -4.5 with the total set at 134.5 at Sportsbook.com on Wednesday. 

Texas looks to continue its impressive Big 12 start when it visits Oklahoma State on Wednesday night.

The Longhorns ended Kansas' 69-game home winning streak with a 74-63 comeback victory on Saturday, holding the high-scoring Jayhawks to 35.9% shooting in winning their fourth straight game. J'Covan Brown (9.8 PPG) finished with a season-best 23 points on 6-of-10 shooting against Kansas, while Jordan Hamilton (19.5 PPG, 7.2 RPG, 41.7% three-pointers), third in the Big 12 in scoring, added 17 points and nine rebounds. Freshman Tristan Thompson (13.1 PPG, 7.6 RPG) chipped in with 12 points, six boards and five blocks. Thompson has averaged 16.4 PPG and 7.9 RPG, while shooting 59.8% from the field in his past eight games. Defense has been a strong suit for Texas, which has limited its Big 12 opponents to an average of 55.3 PPG on 38.8% shooting, including 22.0% from three-point range. For the season, UT has limited its 19 opponents to an average of 61.4 PPG on 37.0% shooting, including 28.9% from behind the arc.

Oklahoma State is coming off a 76-57 loss at Baylor on Saturday, its third setback in the past four games. Freshman Markel Brown (5.2 PPG) had 16 points for just his third double-digit scoring game of the season, but he didn't get much help as the Cowboys hit only 39.2% from the field and 4-of-19 (21.1%) on three-pointers, while allowing Baylor to shoot 60% from the field. Leading scorer Marshall Moses (15.7 PPG, 7.9 RPG, 57.4 FG%) played only 11 minutes due to foul trouble versus the Bears and finished with a season-low one point, missing both of his field goal attempts. Keiton Page, second on the team in scoring at 13.8 PPG, contributed just seven points on 2-of-7 shooting. OSU's only win in the past two weeks came versus Iowa State in overtime on Jan. 19, but it did beat Kansas State, 76-62, on Jan. 8.

Texas holds a 42-35 lead in the all-time series with Oklahoma State. The Longhorns have won eight of the past nine meetings between the two schools (5-3-1 ATS) and are 6-6 (SU and ATS) against OSU in Stillwater in the Rick Barnes era. The Cowboys are 29-1 in their past 30 games at Gallagher-Iba Arena, but their lone loss came to the Longhorns last season, 72-60, behind Hamilton's 27 points. Since that game, Oklahoma State has won 13 straight in Stillwater. The Longhorns also beat OSU in Austin, 69-59, as Hamilton finished with 13 points.

The Suns used an explosive second half run to claim the opener 122-105.
