The offense has been incredible so far this season. Oklahoma State is second in the nation in yards per game, piling up 527.2 yards per contest. They can hurt you through the air, with their 3rd ranked passing attack, or with a ground game that averages over 183 yards per game. The team gets back WR Justin Blackmon, who missed last game due to a suspension. He has caught 14 touchdown passes this season and has over 1100 yards receiving. Tailback Kendall Hunter is also a player that defenses need to watch as he has gotten free for 12 touchdowns this season.

Baylor vs. Oklahoma State Predictions:
Game Total Prediction (TOP PLAY) – Both of the offenses in this game have been putting up huge numbers throughout the season. The total is set incredibly high at 73 points, but these are two prolific offenses capable of getting to that number. In OK State’s last 52 home games, 38 have gone over the posted total. Six of their 8 games this season have gone over as well. Baylor has seen four of their last five games go over the total. It is a lot of points, but these two teams should get there.
Spread Prediction – Oklahoma State has owned Baylor in recent years, beating them in 4 straight games and easily covering every time. The favorite is 10-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings between the two teams. The home team is also 6-2 ATS in the last 8 games in the series. OK State has taken 4 straight in the series ATS, and 5 straight when they are the home team. Look for that dominance to continue in this contest.
