Oklahoma State -2.5, total 66.5 at Sbgglobal
The Cowboys are favored in this game because they are at home and because they are considered to be the better team. Oklahoma State is ranked 10th in the country and with a win can clinch the Big 12 South and a spot in the Big 12 title game. Oklahoma State has a powerful offense that is first in the country in total yards and third in the country in points per game. They should be able to put up a lot of points against an Oklahoma defense that is n nothing special and weak against the pass.
