LINE: Oklahoma State -5, o/u: 56
POINT TOTAL PICK: Under
So, you’re scared about taking the under in any Big 12 game after what happened with Oklahoma and West Virginia.
You should be.
Oklahoma State games have been high-scoring, freak show shootouts with point totals that easily blow past the 70s.
But when the O doesn’t work, it really doesn’t work.
Okay, so you’re hoping for something quirky here. You need the Cowboy O that got skunked by Texas Tech and Kansas State for 17 and 12 points, respectively. And you’re hoping for TCU to stay TCU.
The Horned Frogs aren’t any good, but the defense is holding most teams down, allowing just 17 points or fewer in six games. Even when a team like West Virginia was able to roll up 47 points, the point total was still close to 56.
The TCU offense that can’t score lately has to show up, the D has to be amazing, and this has to be a bit of a fight of ineptitude.
