Free Point Spread Pick
This line opened with the Cowboys favored by 14 and was quickly bet up to -14.5 with sharp action on Oklahoma State. That’s where our money is going to go on this Thursday’s ESPN game. The Cowboys gave the Seminoles a scare in their opener falling by 6 points in the end. In our opinion there are less than a handful of teams in college football that would even have the chance to stay within double digits. They followed that game up with an expected ho hum game against Missouri State falling to cover the 34 point spread. In their latest they destroyed a very decent UTSA squad by 30 points as a -12 point spread favorite out-yarding the Texas-San Antonio Roadrunners 477 yards to 206! It’s a big number to lay but the margin in skill level exceeds the posted betting line in this situation.
Take the Oklahoma State Cowboys -14.5
