Three things you should know before betting on Baylor-Oklahoma State: 

1. When Baylor and Oklahoma State met on October 2, the Cowboys pulled out a 24-14 win as 3.5-point home favorites. Now, these two will take things to a neutral field, where the Bears have to be feeling a lot better about their chances. Oklahoma State didn't lose a single game in Stillwater this year, so the Pokes won't be as confident when taken out of their comfort zone. 

2. Oklahoma State is one of only six Power 5 conference teams that outscored opponents by an average margin of more than 15 points per game during the 2021 regular season. Baylor is 6-5 straight-up and 9-1-1 against the spread since the start of the 2019 season when facing an opponent with a positive scoring margin of 10 or more points per game. 

3. With these teams combining to score only 38 points in October, the Under is now 4-2 in the last six meetings between Baylor and Oklahoma. The Under has also hit in four of the Bears' past five games, and it's just hard to envision this turning into a shootout — even after the Cowboys and Sooners combined to score 70 points in Bedlam last week. Over the last three seasons, the Under is also 14-5 when Oklahoma State has played against teams with completion percentages of 62.0 percent or better.
