The Oklahoma State Cowboys have won 5 of their last 6 road games. Spencer Sanders is completing 61.5 percent of his passes for 1,394 yards, 12 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Braydon Johnson and Brennan Presley have combined for 674 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns, while Bryson Green has 15 receptions.

Mason Cobb leads the Oklahoma State Cowboys with 37 tackles, Brock Martin has 4 sacks and Kendal Daniels has 1 interception.

The TCU Horned Frogs have won 6 of their last 9 home games. Max Duggan is completing 73.2 percent of his passes for 1,305 yards, 14 touchdowns and 1 interception. Quentin Johnston and Taye Barber have combined for 553 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns, while Derius Davis has 16 receptions. The TCU Horned Frogs ground game is averaging 230.2 yards per contest, and Kendre Miller leads the way with 474 yards and 6 touchdowns. Defensively, TCU is allowing 23.8 points and 402.8 yards per game. Mark Perry leads the TCU Horned Frogs with 28 tackles, Dee Winters has 3.5 sacks and Josh Newton has 2 interceptions.

The Cowboys are 16-5-1 ATS in their last 22 road games and 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 games overall. The Horned Frogs are 14-29-1 ATS in their last 44 home games and 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Cowboys last 6 games overall. The home team is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings. The underdog is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 meetings.

Both teams are off to a strong start, and it's the TCU Horned Frogs who are going to get the benefit of the doubt because they're at home. However, we're getting the Oklahoma State Cowboys in the underdog role, a team that already went into Baylor and won and has an offense that's fourth in scoring. This is a case where either team that was getting points was the team I was probably going to back. I can't leave free points on the table with the Cowboys. Give me OK State.
