The Cowboys are playing for pride after a four-game losing streak both straight-up and against the spread sunk their season. This past Saturday, they fell to Texas 28-7 as one-point home underdogs to sink to 5-5 SU and 3-7 ATS. They have now failed to cover in their last five games and the total has stayed UNDER in five of their last six contests.
Oklahoma State had little problem getting past the teams it was supposed to beat, but as an underdog in its last four games it has been outscored 152-40. The Cowboys now need a win either this Saturday against Baylor or against Oklahoma on Dec. 6 just to qualify for a bowl game. They have slipped to 83rd in the nation in scoring with 26.3 points per game and their defense has fallen even further to 91st in points allowed (30.0).
Baylor remains in the thick of the Big 12 title race at 5-1 SU in conference play. It went into last week's bye following a solid 48-14 romp over then-No. 15 Oklahoma as a 5.5-point road underdog that improved its overall record to 8-1 SU and a profitable 7-2 ATS. The total stayed UNDER the 68-point closing line against the Sooners and it has now stayed UNDER in three of the Bears' last five games.
As a one-loss team from a major conference, Baylor is still in the running for a possible spot in this year's national playoffs. This added motivation to run the table in its last three games should provide some added incentive to make short work of the Cowboys this Saturday. The Bears then close things out against Texas Tech and Kansas State in their final two contests. Their offense continues to lead the nation in scoring with an average of 50.1 points a game, but their defense has also held up its end of the bargain by holding opponents to an average of just 21.0 points.
The Cowboys have failed to cover ATS in their last three road games in the Big 12 and they are 1-3 ATS in their last four road games as underdogs. The total has stayed UNDER in three of their last four road games in conference play.
The Bears are 14-1 ATS in their last 15 home games with a perfect 15-0 record SU. The total has gone OVER in their last three games as favorites at home.
Head-to-head in this conference rivalry, Oklahoma State is 16-2 SU in the last 18 meetings overall and 6-2 SU in its last eight road games against the Bears. The total has stayed UNDER in five of the last seven meetings.
Oklahoma State vs. Baylor Game Point Spread Pick
The Cowboys may have dominated this matchup in recent memory, but current form of both teams is clearly in Baylor's favor this time around. While covering 26 points may appear to be a tall task in such a heated showdown, Oklahoma State has been getting blown-out on a regular basis lately and the Bears are playing their best ball of the year. Lay the points on the home team in this one as Baylor rolls.
