Heading into this matchup, the oddmakers have the Texas Longhorns as the -3 point favorites over the Oklahoma State Cowboys. Even though this will be a tough road matchup for the Longhorns’, look for a strong defensive effort to lead them to a victory. When it comes to getting a bet down on the spread, we see Oklahoma State struggling with their outside shot, as this has been a trend all season long. On the other side, even though the Texas also hasn’t been lighting it up from downtown, our projections show them putting together a good offensive performance. For today’s game, our recommendation is to take Texas laying the points.
