Point Spread Pick:
The home team has won the last 5 in this series and Oklahoma State is 13-2 as the home team this season. But, the Cowboys are on a bit of a down road spiral losing 3 of their last 4 straight up and failing to get the point spread cover in their last 3. Speaking of not covering the spread, the Cyclones have been destroying their backers’ bankrolls with 6 straight non covers. It’s difficult to forecast who can rebound here, but we’ll go with Oklahoma State coming off of an embarrassing home loss to right the ship.
