Oklahoma State has the slightly more dangerous offense in averaging 33.4 points per game (34th) while Texas A&M averages 30.0 points per contest (62nd).
Then, there’s the fact that the Cowboys have gone 4-2 away from home this season while Texas A&m has struggled on the road by going 1-3. Last, but not least, Oklahoma State played well in winning four of their last five games, despite falling to Oklahoma 34-16 in the Big 12 championship.

Why Bet On Texas A&M?The Aggies lost their final two regular season games, including their embarrassing 50-7 beatdown against LSU in their SEC regular season finale, but there are still some great reasons to back Texas A&M in this matchup. First, there’s the fact that the Aggies have only lost to elite, nationally-ranked championship hopefuls in falling to Clemson, Auburn, Alabama, Georgia and top-ranked LSU. Texas A&M has the better statistical defense in limiting the opposition to just 22.7 points per game (37th) while Oklahoma State allows 27.0 points per contest (63rd).
Then, there’s the fact that Texas A&M has the big edge at quarterback where dual-threat signal-caller Kellen Mond has thrown for 2,800 yards and 19 touchdowns while rushing for 384 rushing yards and an additional seven scores while Oklahoma State will be without starting quarterback Spencer Sanders due to a surgery on his throwing hand.

Expert Analysis & Prediction for Oklahoma State vs Texas A&MTexas A&M might not have the better record coming into this season-ending affair, but the Aggies have played the tougher level of competition and they’ve only been beaten by five teams that were all ranked inside the national top 10 at the time of their meetings. Texas A&M has the big edge at quarterback and with Oklahoma State turning to a backup, this one could get way out of hand.
I like Texas A&M to dial up a great defensive effort while harassing Cowboys backup Dru Brown and forcing the inexperienced quarterback into at least one costly turnover and possibly two.
I know the Cowboys are 12-2 ATS in their last 14 games as an underdog and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games, but Texas A&M has gone a bankroll-boosting 11-1 ATS in their last 12 non-conference games and 16-5-1 ATS in their last 22 games as a favorite. I’m going with Texas A&M to get the win and AS cover with room to spare and you should too!
Score: Oklahoma State 21 – Texas A&M 31
