    Baylor (+14) @ WVU - high scoring shootout
    K-State (+25) @ OU - take the points though
    TCU (-14) @ Ku - Ku may very well cover given Frog affairs (upset alert)
    TxT (+4) @ ISU - B12 game of the week
    Texas (-3) @ oSu - look for Horns to roll

    I like your picks, but have a hunch that Baylor, who played well in their loss to Texas, will upset WVU on the road. The Mountaineers did have a bye, but were badly exposed in Ames, and might be vulnerable to letting ISU beat them twice.

    100% agree with the picks, but I take OU to cover. K-state will be brought back down to earth with a crash. Texas only a 3 pt favorite seems super low. If I were a betting man I’d think that Texas spread is a slam dunk.

    Is Baylor set up to cause problems like Iowa State's defense? Baylor should have taken advantage of Texas' QB being out.


    WVU
    OU
    TCU
    ISU

    Upset
    OSU

    Hard to imagine someone covering that many points against a Kansas State team. I'd definitely take the points there. TCU does seems to be on a slide, so it wouldn't surprise me if that one is very, very close. I'll take ISU to cover. West Virginia could go either way. I think they'll bounce back, but it will be uncomfortable. OSU is kind of in rebound territory, and UT overlooks a lot of people, so I think that game is a possible upset.

    ISU is favored against another ranked team? Maybe these Vegas guys should make the polls because they seem to know more than the actual poll guys.

    They only lost to WVU (who was ranked #23 at the time) by two last year in Waco. All of Baylor's other B12 losses last year were by a TD or more.

    I agree, it feels like OSU is in free fall and Texas is rollling. So I can definitely see OSU inexplicably score 45 points while Texas throws 4 INTs.

    Could also see KU jump up and get TCU if TCU doesn't take care of the ball... But I expect GP will have the wagons circled and they will play hard and win.

    Both TCU and WVU are in bad places presently. I don't trust Dana more than Donald Duck coaching a team. He's like Gundy, worse actually, winning with Jimmys and Joes, not X's and O's.

    And TCU is dealing with demons right now. Regardless of how good Patterson is as a coach, overcoming those kinds of loses will be a challenge even in Lawrence, KS.

    Texas is good and OSU is down but I won't be shocked if OSU makes this a close game and it comes down to the final few minutes. There is a reason it's only -3.

    Also, Texas has only had one true road game this year...at KSU and they only won 19-14. I think OSU just might pull the upset.

    I am very close to this. I think a few unexpected things will happen. TCU (this sounds weird) is expected to get a tough game from KU and I think the roll, while Texas may stumble in Stillwater.

    OU 42 KSU 21
    TCU 37 KU 17
    Texas 34 OSU 31
    ISU 31 Tech 24
    WVU 35 Baylor 20

    We'll find out more about WV tonight. For various reasons, they haven't been very successful the last 2.5 games.

    A matchup nightmare for BU. Reminds me of K-State trying to handle Hugs' thugs.
