OU is 6-4 ATS, with a 5-5 over/under record.
Corey’s Free Pick
Dillon Gabriel’s health will be a big factor heading into the regular season finale, as both schools still have spots to play for. A win here secure’s Oklahoma spot in what would fittingly serve as their final Big 12 game against Texas, while a victory Friday makes TCU bowl eligible. It’s been a down year for the Horned Frogs after moving on from Max Duggan, and it’s hard to trust them on the road here with the stakes high for the Sooners. The stage is set for a special conference championship, so let’s back Oklahoma to strike revenge for last year's title game loss to TCU, and take care of business on Senior Day.
