The Cowboys are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Red Raiders are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

The Texas Tech Red Raiders haven't had any covering success this season, but they're clearly the better team here. The Oklahoma State Cowboys are coming off back to back tough losses and those close contest could take its toll on a young team. I look for the Texas Tech Red Raiders to get a rare cover against a vulnerable OK State squad.
