    The Texas Longhorns have scored 30 or more points in six consecutive games for the first time since 2009, which is important to consider when making your college football picks in Week 12, as they prepare to take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys in Austin.

    Sports bettors will find that the Longhorns are three-point home underdogs in the NCAA football odds, while the total sits at 63.5 in the market.

    Let's take a closer look at this Big 12 Conference matchup from a betting perspective while offering up a prediction along the way.

    The Oklahoma State Cowboys have won five games in a row, including a 42-6 victory over the Kansas Jayhawks as 31.5-point home favorites last Saturday in which they went UNDER the betting total of 56.

    College football handicappers will find that the Cowboys have scored 20 or more points in 48 consecutive games—the longest active streak of its kind in college football.

    The Texas Longhorns are riding a six-game winning streak, which includes a 47-40 overtime victory over the West Virginia Mountaineers as 6.5-point road favorites last Saturday.

    Over the last two-plus seasons, the Longhorns are 5-6 straight up and against the spread as underdogs, with the OVER going 6-5 in that situation.

Prediction

3 of 3

    I'm going to recommend that readers play the total, as the OVER is 6-1 in the Texas Longhorns' last seven games after they threw for 280 or more yards in their previous contest.
