Friday Locks Season Results
WVU (+7.5) vs. Oklahoma State – Going on the road and winning in Morgantown is never easy. I think the Pokes will come out with a win on Saturday, but not by more than a touchdown. OSU will have to improve offensively from last week against Texas.
Texas (-8.5) at Baylor – The Longhorns are in desperate need of a win and I think they will get it this week in a big way. I see Texas going on the road and winning by several touchdowns this weekend. As each loss comes for the Bears, their fight and will to win decreases.
TCU (-6.5) at Iowa State – The Cyclones were without a doubt the most underrated team in the Big 12 this season. They’ve surprised a lot of people and even landed in the top 25. However, I believe the the Horned Frogs are the real deal and they’ll take care of business on Saturday.
West Virginia (+7.5) vs. Oklahoma State – The Cowboys are typically so dangerous it’s hard to pick against them. However, the team we saw in Austin last week wasn’t the team we saw through September and most of October. Playing on the road in an early game again is causing me to pull the trigger on the Mountaineers getting 7.5 points. Just like last week, Pokes win this one but it’ll be close.
Texas (-8.5) at Baylor – The Bears still have a lot of fight left in them but the Longhorns are reaching the point of desperation. Give me Texas by at least 10 points.
Iowa State (+6.5) vs. TCU – How good are the Frogs? Good enough that they haven’t been tested yet this season. I think that test comes in Ames on Saturday. The Cyclones may be playing the best football in the conference right now (Did I really just type that?) and they’ll keep this one within a touchdown.
KSU (-24) at Kansas – It’s clear that the Jayhawks have no motivation for the remainder of the season. On the other end of the equation, KSU can still become bowl eligible. With something to fight for, give me a disciplined and well coached Bill Snyder team every day of the week here.
WVU (+7.5) vs Oklahoma State – Morgantown is not an easy place to play for the rest of the Big 12. Add to it the expectation of rain and this could be much lower scoring than anticipated. With that said, I think OSU is the better team and squeaks out a win.
Texas (-8.5) at Baylor – The Longhorn defense has been one of the best in conference play this season. The secondary will likely suck the wind out of the sails of the Bears offensive hopes. This one could easily turn but I don’t see it happening. Give me Texas, unfortunately!
KSU (-24) at KU – The Jayhawks have lost three in a row by at least 43 points. I don’t think they’re going to all of a sudden improve. The Wildcats should win by at least four touchdowns.
TCU (-6.5) at ISU – The Cyclones have been the hottest team in the Big XII lately…almost. Their streak is going to end this weekend as they take on the league’s lone undefeated. The Horned Frogs SHOULD win by a couple of touchdowns.
OU (-20) vs. Texas Tech – The Red Raiders had a solid start to the season, but after dropping two in a row, they’re on a downward slide. The Sooners are coming off back-to-back close wins, and they’re going to want to impress the home crowd with a big win.
