Bet on Texas +3 Because…
The Texas offense should have its way with the Oklahoma State defense. Texas rushes for an average of 238.3 yards per game. The Texas passing offense averages 262 yards per game. Texas scores 44.7 points on average. The offense is incredibly versatile. Starting QB Shane Buechele is the passer while former starter Tyrone Swoopes is the rusher.
Bet on Oklahoma State -3 Because…
Oklahoma State deserves some luck after their last game against Baylor. The Cowboys looked to be in a good position only down by 4 points going into the 4th quarter in their loss to Baylor. But Baylor scored a TD to make it 35 to 24 while the Cowboys couldn’t put a single point on the board in the 4th. If Oklahoma State can put together a complete game, they could cover the spread against Texas.
ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
That’s if Oklahoma State can put together a complete game. The Cowboys haven’t done so yet this season. I seriously doubt they’re going to do it versus a Texas team that’s had an extra week to prepare.
Texas has too much versatility on offense for Oklahoma State’s offense to counter. As well as Oklahoma State played against Baylor in their last game, they could play just as poorly versus Texas.
It’s the Longhorns time to shine in the Big 12. Forget about the loss to California. A few calls go the other way, and Texas wins that game. Texas should take care of business on Saturday.
