Oklahoma State vs Baylor Prediction & Pick
There's no denying that this has been one of the more balanced rivalries in the Big 12 conference. Oklahoma State holds the edge with a 22-19 all-time record against Baylor, but these teams split their two head-to-head meetings in 2021. It was the Bears that captured the Big 12 Conference title.
This one is going to come down to Sanders. The 22-year-old threw 7 interceptions against Baylor last year and put Oklahoma State's defense in tough spots all day long. That makes it difficult to go against a Bears team that has won nine straight home games and five straight games in the Big 12.
Final Score Prediction: Oklahoma State: 24 | Baylor: 27

This game is a toss-up and any bettors looking to avoid having to pick a winner should shift gears to the point total. The under has hit in each of Oklahoma State's last nine away games and it has hit in seven of Baylor's last nine games overall. Both of these teams run the ball and play stellar defense.
It's worth noting the under has also hit in four of the last five head-to-head matchups between the Cowboys and the Bears. McLane Stadium is going to be rocking on Saturday afternoon, making it tough for Sanders to find his rhythm. Reliance on the rushing attack will keep the clock moving here.
