Oklahoma State Cowboys vs Cincinnati Bearcats prediction

The Cincinnati Bearcats should win this game at home, but this line is thick for a team that's lost 7 of their last 11 games and can be sluggish at times offensively. The Oklahoma State Cowboys have no success on the road, and they're not a good team to put it nicely, but they have covered 4 straight games and that includes an upset with over BYU as a 6 point dog. Lots of points. Give me OK State in this spot.
