Oklahoma State is 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a loss while the over is 11-5 in their last 16 conference matchups. TCU is 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a loss and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games against a team with a losing road record while the over is 15-5 in their last 20 games overall.

TCU has been pretty good following up a loss, the problem is that the Horned Frogs have been struggling lately, and while Oklahoma State hasn’t been much better but they did put up big wins against West Virginia and Kansas and I think there’s a chance that TCU could be added to that list so I’ll take a stab at Oklahoma State and the points in this one.
