College Football Picks Week 12 – No. 12 Oklahoma State Visits No. 24 Texas In Big 12 Clash


The No. 12 Oklahoma State Cowboys have kept their Big 12 title hopes alive with five-straight online sports betting wins. That road is about to get a lot bumpier as they play out the final three weeks of the college football season. Oklahoma State will wrap up its season schedule with three-straight games against ranked opponents, including the two teams currently standing above them in the Big 12 standings. The Cowboys have won eight of their first nine games, but their lone defeat came at West Virginia back in late September and that has them behind both Texas and Baylor in the conference standings even though the Longhorns have lost two games outside of the Big 12. Oklahoma State may need to go perfect the next three weeks to finish atop the standings, beginning this Saturday at No. 24 Texas.

The Longhorns opened the year by dropping two of three, falling 19 points short at BYU and then following that up with a 17-point loss against then-No. 25 Ole Miss the following week. However, Texas has followed up that rough start with six-straight Big 12 wins to take a half-game lead ahead of undefeated Baylor atop the conference standings, and they are in control of their own destiny with games against the Cowboys and Bears down this final stretch.

Oklahoma State will enter this week with a ton of momentum after beating up on a Kansas team that is winless in the Big 12, scoring 28-unanswered to open the game en route to the 42-6 victory. Senior quarterback Clint Chelf threw for 265 yards and three touchdowns – all of which came after Justin Gilbert returned the opening kickoff 100 yards for the touchdown. Head coach Mike Gundy knows his offense will have to play at a high level to win this game on the road, and he would surely welcome that kind of a spark from his special teams. The Cowboys’ only loss came on the road at West Virginia earlier this year, and they can’t afford another letdown as the visiting team in what on paper appears to be a much tougher online sports betting match up.

The Longhorns were fortunate to overcome their own scare when they visited the Mountaineers last week, barely coming out on top in a 47-40 overtime win. Senior quarterback Case McCoy threw for 283 yards and three scores, including the game-winning touchdown pass in overtime. The offense will try and build off a strong performance after putting up 435 total yards and 47 points, but the defense needs to bounce back following a tough outing, even though they stood tall at the end with linebacker Steve Edmond coming though with the game-clinching interception in his own endzone in overtime. Texas already has one more loss than Oklahoma State, but they are undefeated through six Big 12 games and that has them at the top of the standings.

The Cowboys have already come up short on the road in the Big 12 as a favorite, but that was earlier in the year when they were caught napping against an inferior West Virginia team, and they should play with a lot more urgency off the top in this one. Texas only narrowly avoided a similar fate at West Virginia last week, but for as good as they have been they still have major question marks on the defense and home advantage will not be enough to make the difference in what should be a close win for Oklahoma State. College Football Betting Pick: Oklahoma State Cowboys – 3.
