Betting on the Iowa State Cyclones (+3.5)

Record: 3-1 Overall / 3-0 Conference

The Cyclones picked up their third straight win last Saturday by taking down the Texas Tech Red Raiders at home, 31-15. 

Brock Purdy had fun slicing down Texas Tech’s defense. He passed for 302 passing yards and two touchdowns without an interception on 32-of-43 completions. Against the stout defense of the Cowboys, Iowa State is hoping that Purdy will be able that kind of performance. On the season, Purdy is fourth in the Big 12 with 912 passing yards and four touchdowns against just an interception in four games this season. On the ground,  Cyclones have the most productive running back in the conference. Sophomore tailback Breece Hall is tops in the Big 12 with an average of 132.75 rushing yards per game to go with eight touchdowns. In last year’s 34-27 home loss to the Cowboys, Hall had 76 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries. He also made a mark in the passing attack with 42 receiving yards on six receptions, including one that he took for 23 yards.

Iowa State, which is averaging 29.8 points per game, is 5-5 against the spread in its last 10 games away from Ames.

Betting on the Oklahoma State Cowboys (-3.5)

Record: 3-0 Overall / 2-0 Conference

The Cowboys are coming off a long rest, as their game against the Baylor Bears that was scheduled for last Saturday was postponed due to the COVID-19 cases. That postponement may have diminished the momentum of the Cowboys, who are on a 3-0 start to the season. In their most recent outing, the Cowboys destroyed the Kansas Jayhawks in Lawrence in a 47-7 win in Lawrence on Oct. 3. Defense has been a key weapon for Oklahoma State, which is allowing just 9.0 points through three games this season. Moreover, the Cowboys are surrendering just 274.7 total yards per contest. The sturdiness of Oklahoma State’s stop unit is also evidenced by the fact that opponents are converting on just 16.67 percent of their third-down chances against the Cowboys. They also seem to have the number of Purdy. In last season’s win against Iowa State, the Cowboys allowed just a touchdown to Purdy and intercepted three times.

Oklahoma State is 6-4 against the spread in its last 10 games as the home team.

Writer’s Prediction

The Cyclones win, 30-27.
