After running our analysis on this game, we’ve identified the best side to take on the spread. Currently, the oddsmakers have Baylor as the favorites with a line coming in at -2. However, based on how these team’s matchup, we see this number being too high and like the Oklahoma Sooners to cover. Both team’s have knocked down the 3-point shot at a rate similar to the NCAA average this season with Baylor at 7.94 made 3’s per game compared to Oklahoma at 7.36.
