The Oklahoma State Cowboys have the ability to win this game and have already flexed their muscle against some of the top teams in the Big 12 this season. However, Oklahoma State also goes through scoring droughts at times and it makes them tough to trust against the nations elite. The Kansas Jayhawks are the more talented team here and have had far less dips in their game throughout the season. With the low line, I have no choice but to side with the Jayhawks.
