Road Team The Safe Bet Between Texas, Oklahoma State

Big 12 rivals clash when the Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma State Cowboys meet in Stillwater on Saturday. Boone Pickens Stadium may be the right place to bet Texas, as the road team has covered in the past nine meetings between the two teams.

Shark Bites
  • Texas is 14-4 SU in its last 18 games against Oklahoma State.
  • The total has gone OVER in 8 of Oklahoma State's last 11 games.
  • Oklahoma State is 1-5 SU and ATS in its last 6 games against teams with winning records.

The once-promising season for Texas is starting to look more like a nightmare than a dream. The Longhorns' victory over Notre Dame in Week 1 looked great until we watched the Irish start the season 1-3. The Longhorns then let Cal’s offense throw all over them in Week 3 and a loss in Stillwater could completely derail the season.

If Oklahoma State wants to salvage their season, they will need to beat Texas. The Cowboys have already lost two games – one respectable loss to Baylor and one bad defeat to Central Michigan. Turnovers were the key to Oklahoma State’s most recent loss to Baylor, as they gave the ball up four times – the same amount they had in the previous three weeks combined.
