Under is 6-2 in Aggies last 8 games as a favorite of 3.5-10.0.
Cowboys are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 meetings.
Over is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.
My Prediction: This should be a great matchup today. A&M’s defense will try to slow down the Cowboys explosive offense. The Pokes are averaging over 600 yards a game of offense including 408 passing yards a game. The Aggies defense is one of the best in the nation and will make it impossible for Oklahoma State to even come close to their 193 yards rushing a game average. The big key is whether or not the Cowboys can stop RB Cyrus Gray. Their defense gives up a ridiculous 171 yards a game on the ground. Four of the last 5 meetings between these two have been decided by 5 points or less. I expect another back-and-forth contest. Take the points.
Oklahoma State +4.5
