Betting on the Oklahoma Sooners 7-1 (+2.5)
Oklahoma may be looked past after falling to Iowa State earlier this season, but they could still be the best team in the Big 12. They were able to get past a tough Texas defense, survived against Kansas State on the road, and now have stuffed Texas Tech with a 49-27 victory in primetime last week. The Sooners came back from an early 20-14 deficit and ripped the Red Raiders defense apart with three touchdowns in the third quarter.
They ended up posting 31 first downs, converted 7-of-13 third downs, both fourth down conversion attempts, and 617 total yards. Quarterback Baker Mayfield completed 22-of-34 passes for 281 yards, four touchdowns, and a pick. Wide receiver CeeDee Lamb was the leader, with 147 yards on nine receptions and two scores.
Mayfield now had 2,628 passing yards and a stunning ratio of 23 touchdowns to 3 interceptions. Running back Rodney Anderson also had a field day with 181 yards and a score on 24 attempts.
Betting on the Oklahoma State Cowboys 7-1 (-2.5)
Oklahoma State took down West Virginia in a top-25 battle last week in the Big 12, 50-39. The Cowboys pulled away in the fourth quarter, getting two touchdowns to get a 43-24 lead. Even though the defense gave up 39 points to WVU, they made them earn every bit of it. The OSU defense held WVU to 19 first downs and just 2-of-15 third-down conversions. They were able to convert all three fourth-down attempts and so were the Cowboys.
A whopping nine turnovers plagued the game, and the Mountaineers were responsible for five of them. Quarterback Mason Rudolph was more protective of the ball, completing 20-of-34 passes for 216 yards, three scores, and one pick. However, three different offensive players registered a lost fumble.
Running back J.D. King was one of them, but he still dominated with 142 rushing yards and a touchdown on 36 attempts. He now has 445 yards and four scores on the season.
It is going to be a back and forth game throughout all the quarters, but only one team will bring home the win It is a difficult game to select however, with how clutch OSU’s defense can be at times, it’s easier to side with them to outright beat their rivals.Pick: Oklahoma State (-2.5)
