Texas is 1-5 against the spread in their last six home games, 4-1 against the spread following a loss by 20 or more points, and 0-4 against the spread at home against a team with a losing road record. Oklahoma State is 5-2 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread, 6-19-1 against the spread in their last 26 road games, and 6-0 against the spread in their last six Wednesday games. The favorite is 4-0-1 against the spread in the last five meetings of these two.
My free pick in this one is on the total sand at 126.5 the over is the play. My stronger play is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the APp.
