The Bears are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games on grass and 37-18 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The under is 10-3 in Cowboys last 13 games overall. The under is 9-2 in Bears last 11 games in December. The Cowboys are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The favorite is 14-6 ATS in their last 20 meetings.
The Oklahoma State Cowboys have been the better team this season, but they've also been inconsistent and have lost four of their last seven road games dating back to last year. The Baylor Bears cant finish games, but all six of their losses have been decided by 13 or less points and the defense continues to allow them to hang around. OK State should be favored and Baylor will probably fall apart in the final 15 minutes like always, but this feels like a back and forth Big 12 battle that will be tight throughout.
I want Baylor with the points in my pocket.
