Oklahoma State hasn’t been as dominant in terms of their victories this season, but they currently sit with a 5-0 record. In the last game against Baylor, the defense locked down giving up only 14 points, and that led to the 10 point victory. Oklahoma State is averaging 25.4 points while the defense is giving up 18.6 points per game. Under center for Oklahoma State is Spencer Sanders and he has thrown for 781 yards, five touchdowns, and four interceptions. Running back Jaylen Warren is also having a big year rushing 115 times for 512 yards and six touchdowns.
Texas currently sits with a 4-2 record overall but they are coming off one of the most entertaining games of the year, even though they lost. Texas looked like they were well on their way to a victory, before letting Oklahoma outscore them 25-7 in the 4th quarter. Texas gave up 55 points in the game. Quarterback Casey Thompson had a big year completing 20 of his 34 passes for 388 yards and five touchdowns. Running back Bijan Robinson is having a big year rushing 20 times for 137 yards and a touchdown. Texas is averaging 44.5 points while the defense is giving up 29.17 points.
Oklahoma State is 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games overall. Texas is 8-2 in their last eight games overall. The underdog is 4-0 in the last four games. The under is 7-0-1 in the last eight meetings in Texas.
Texas has a good offense, but Oklahoma State’s defense is strong, and they are going to slow down the Longhorns. That loss for Texas against Oklahoma also should be in the back of their minds in this game. The underdog is 4-0 in the last four games, and that will continue in this game. Back the Cowboys to cover the spread.
