Point Spread Pick:
Yes we know that the Cyclones are 12-1 at home this season, but show me the money. Iowa State has failed to cover the spread in 5 straight as a host and is a bankroll crushing 1-9 ATS in their last 10! The Longhorns are not the same on the road, but they have been doing enough to win 6 of 8 and have covered the line in 3 of 5 when in the underdog role. Take the Texas Longhorns +5.
