The Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Baylor Bears are set to kick off their college football clash on Saturday 12/1, and I’m set to make my college football pick for the affair at Floyd Casey Stadium. Kickoff is set for 12:00 ET, and I’ve got the perfect NCAA football pick for this outstanding clash.
Oklahoma State Cowboys (7-4, 6-4 ATS) -5
Baylor Bears (6-5, 7-4 ATS) +5
There is absolutely no denying the fact that Oklahoma State and Baylor have two of the best offenses in America this year. They can both run up and down the field, and neither one is ever out of a game. But’s let’s be realistic about this. This is the highest ‘total’ that has ever been posted in a college football game, and it’s the highest number by a solid four points.
Remember that the Bears have at least shown the ability to somewhat slow games teams down, having allowed just a total of 38 points to the two Kansas schools. It’s going to require allowing at least 40 in this one for the ‘total’ to even be threatened, and it might take 50. Think about that for a second. Fifty points, and that’s only an average game.
It’s just an insane number to try to shoot at. I know that over the course of the last few weeks, we’ve seen four straight ‘overs’ by Okie State and three straight ‘overs’ for Baylor, and all seven games have featured ‘totals’ of at least 68 points. I get it. I really do. I also know that in the last five meetings of these two rivals, not one has exceeded 83 points. I believe 83. I just don’t believe 88.
