Texas has won and covered the number in back-to-back games, including a 33-16 victory over the West Virginia Mountaineers as three-point home underdogs last week, while going UNDER the betting total for a third consecutive contest. The Longhorns have won 23 of 28 all-time meetings in this Big 12 Conference series, which can’t be ignored when making your Week 12 college football betting picks, as they’ve outscored the Cowboys by an average of 12.4 points a contest. Texas is 7-1 SU and 4-3-1 ATS as road favorites the last two-plus seasons, with the OVER going 5-3 in that situation.
The Longhorns have been led by their 39th-ranked defense under first-year head coach Charlie Strong, which is important to consider when looking over the college football odds, as they’ve allowed just 4.65 yards per play. Texas has recorded 30 sacks in the first 10 games, which is the most it has tallied in that particular stretch since 2009. Offensively, quarterback Tyrone Swoopes has emerged as a big-time playmaker, as he’s completed 57.2 percent of his passes for 1,847 yards and 10 touchdowns with six interceptions in nine games.
Oklahoma State is focused on trying to snap a three-game losing streak coming off a bye week, as it was last seen dropping a 48-14 decision to the Kansas State Wildcats as 13-point road underdogs on Nov. 1, while getting out-gained for a fourth straight affair. The Cowboys need some big plays from all-purpose back Tyreek Hill, as he leads the Big 12 and ranks 10th nationally in that particular category. Oklahoma State is 0-2 SUATS as home underdogs of three or fewer points since 2012.
The Cowboys need one more win to become bowl eligible for a school-record ninth consecutive season, while they’ve captured their last 26 home games versus unranked opponents. Oklahoma State has recorded at least two sacks in nine of10 games this year, while it has put together a 38-2 SU mark when winning the turnover battle in its last 40 affairs.
Sports bettors will likely back the Longhorns due to the favorite covering the number in five consecutive meetings.
