Against the Spread (3-2): Baylor
Commentary: I picked Tech to win last week…can’t do it on the road this week until we play a good away game. 38-24 Baylor wins

Straight Up (4-1): Baylor
Against the Spread (4-1): 
Texas Tech
Commentary: 
Baylor 35, Texas Tech 31. I’ll take the points here. Baylor is effective in all phases of offense, but they do go through scoring droughts, including laying a goose egg the second half again Rice (RICE!). Tech’s two road trips have not gone well, and I’m seeing the first game at McLane going the way of the Bears in a close one.

Michael LaBarre
Straight Up (4-1): Baylor
Against the Spread (4-1): 
Baylor
Commentary: 
I’m typically a pessimist about sports, with the exception of the Patriots and actually now Texas Tech Basketball. The football team looked awful on the road so far, the Bears are undefeated and looking good, perhaps maybe a high after the Oklahoma State win. Let’s go Baylor 45, Texas Tech 27

Spencer
Straight Up (3-2): Baylor 
Against the Spread (3-2): 
Texas Tech
Commentary: 
Baylor 34, Texas Tech 27

Brian
Straight Up (4-0): Baylor
Against the Spread (1-3): Texas Tech
Commentary: Baylor 37, Tech 27

Seth
Straight Up (3-2): Baylor
Against the Spread (3-2): Texas Tech
Commentary: Baylor 28-24

Community Predictions:

Straight Up (3-2): 76% of y’all picked Oklahoma State to win. Looked like a smart bet on paper, but since do the Red Raiders take that into account. For those you pick Tech, give yourselves a round of applause
Against the Spread (3-2): 74% of y’all picked the Cowboys to cover. There was a chance Oklahoma State could come back and cover in the third, but once Tech went up two scores in the fourth, it was over.

Who Wins The Game?

Baylor -11

Over (Baylor wins by 11 or more)
