TCU vs Oklahoma State (Big 12) Betting Prediction
The Horned Frogs will look to end their four game losing streak today at home. Both teams are struggling on the offensive end and this should be a low scoring game in Fort Worth today. It is difficult to expect the away team to not cover the six-point spread today. The Cowbys will do enough to control the tempo of the game in the final third plays. So, take OSU ATS in this one.
Pick: Oklahoma State Cowbys +6 (-110)
