UPDATE: The betting public at DraftKings Sportsbook thinks the Texas Bowl will be a close one. Texas A&M is a 4.5-point favorite, but we have a 50/50 split on the point spread betting handle and 60 percent of point spread tickets are on Oklahoma State. On the other hand, 57 percent of handle and 57 percent of tickets bet on the money line are on the favored Aggies.
Texas A&M played one of the most difficult schedules imaginable, which is why it is coming in with only seven wins. The Aggies lost to Clemson, Auburn, Alabama, Georgia and LSU. What a brutal schedule.
Oklahoma State comes in at 8-4 with losses to Texas, Texas Tech, Baylor and Oklahoma. The Cowboys come into this one with an impressive 9-3 performance against the spread.
Game Time/TV Channel/Streaming
The Texas Bowl will begin at 6:45 p.m. ET in Houston, Texas on Friday, Dec. 27 and can be seen on ESPN and WatchESPN.

The Best Bet
Texas A&M was at least somewhat competitive against its brutal schedule, so that 7-5 record coming in is very misleading. I think we’re going to see the Aggies come out with something to prove and lay it on Oklahoma State in this one. It would have been nice to get this one under a touchdown, but I’m still confident the Aggies can win this one by double digits.
Pick: Texas A&M -7
