Betting on the Oklahoma State Cowboys (5-4 Overall / 2-4 Conference)
Whatever momentum the Cowboys got from their huge 38-25 upset win over the Texas Longhorns last week, it all went for naught over the weekend, as they found themselves taking an upset loss at the hands of the Baylor Bears, 35-31. The Cowboys’ offense did fine. Oklahoma State quarterback Taylor Cornelius had 287 passing yards and a touchdown on 24-of-41 completions while running back Justice Hill rushed for 119 of the team’s 212 rushing yards. He also accounted for one of the Cowboys’ three rushing scores. The Cowboys could have done more offensively if it weren’t for their discipline or lack thereof. They committed 12 penalties, which is somewhat uncharacteristic of them, given that that Oklahoma State is only averaging seven infractions per contest this season. Cornelius, who entered Saturday third in the conference with an average of 291.9 passing yards per game, should still be feeling excited knowing that he’s going to deal next with Oklahoma’s defense that just allowed 366 passing yards to the Texas Tech Red Raiders.
The Cowboys are 2-1 ATS in their last three road games against Oklahoma.
Betting on the Oklahoma Sooners (8-1 Overall / 5-1 Conference)
Behind the arm of Kyler Murray, the Sooners were able to outlast Texas Tech in a shootout in Lubbock last Saturday, 51-46. Murray threw for 360 yards and three touchdowns on 20-of-35 completions. Murray had two interceptions, but also had 100 rushing yards and a rushing score in 11 carries. With his performance, Murray became the first Sooners quarterback to have back-to-back 350 passing yards games since 2012 (Landry Jones). Murray is a yards machine, and he could be due for another huge outing at home next weekend, as Oklahoma State’s defense hasn’t look convincing for most of the season. The Cowboys are allowing the second most points per game in the Big 12 with 29.3 and that’s mostly because their pass defense hasn’t been up to snuff with 256.0 passing yards surrendered per contest, third highest in the conference. Murray is a good bet to chop down that kind of defense. It helps Murray that he had a stout protection unit, which has allowed only 10 sacks this season or less than one per game.
The Sooners are 6-2 ATS in their last eight home games.
Oklahoma extends their Bedlam Series domination with another 10-point win over Oklahoma State. Final score? 33-23 in favor of the Sooners.
