Big 12 Best Bets: Week 7

We don’t condone gambling, but this is how we’d do it.

Now, onto this week’s picks!

NOTE: Unfortunately, Will didn’t get his picks in on time.

Baylor at Oklahoma State (-25.5) (70.5)

Joel: Too many points on the spread here, I’ll take Baylor +25.5 and the over.

Cullen: I agree with Joel. I’ll take Baylor to cover but the Pokes to win. Give me the over.

Cory: Baylor and over

TCU (-6) at Kansas State (52)

Joel: TCU will cover the -6 but it will be close the whole way. I’ll take the under as well, two solid defenses in this one.

Cullen: I’ll take KState and the under.

Cory: KState and under

Texas Tech at West Virginia (-3.5) (76)

Joel: West Virginia will cover here, and I’ll take the over.

Cullen: West Virginia and the over.

Cory: West Virginia and under

Kansas at Iowa State (-22.5) (66.5)

Joel: I took KU to cover last week that they painfully did not. Iowa State covers here and I’ll take the over.

Cullen: ISU and the under.

Cory: ISU and under

Oklahoma (-7.5) at Texas (65)

Joel: Texas +7.5, and the over.

Cullen: I’m taking Texas to not only cover but to win straight up. I’ll take the over.

Cory: Horns and under

National Game: Auburn (-7) at LSU (44)

Joel: Even though the game is in Death Valley, Auburn may put up the total by themselves. Auburn covers easily and the over.

Cullen: Auburn and the over.

Cory: Auburn and under

Upset Pick

Joel: Florida is getting -2.5 at home against Texas A&M. Florida’s offense is so bad I don’t think they can beat the Aggies, even at home. I’ll take A&M +2.5, and the under of 51.5.

Cullen: I’ll take Minnesota over Michigan St (-4). I’ll take the over also.

Cory: I'm looking for redemption after possibly the worst upset prediction of all time last week, thanks Tulsa! The 3.5 point underdog Navy Midshipmen travel to Memphis and leave with victory!
