Betting on the Oklahoma State Cowboys (-3)
Record: 7-1 Overall / 4-1 Conference
Oklahoma State returned to its winning ways by crushing the Kansas Jayhawks at home last Saturday, 55-3. The victory came a week after the Cowboys suffered a brutal blow to their College Football Playoff chances by losing to the Iowa State Cyclones on the road, 24-21. The Cowboys’ defense was at its best against the Jayhawks, as Oklahoma State garnered three interceptions and surrendered just a total of 143 yards to Kansas. Oklahoma State owns one of the best defenses in the nation, ranking 13th with 18.3 points allowed per game and fifth with just 289.1 total yards given up per contest, so far this season. That smells like trouble for West Virginia’s turnover-prone offense that owns a -0.7 turnover margin per game average.
Oklahoma State is 6-2-0 against the spread (ATS) this year to go with a perfect 3-0 ATS record as a road team.
Betting on the West Virginia Mountaineers (+3)
Record: 4-4 Overall / 2-3 Conference
West Virginia has good momentum going for it after back-to-back wins over the TCU Horned Frogs (29-17) on the road on Oct. 23 and against no. 22 Iowa State (38-31) at home last Saturday. The Mountaineers’ offense is peaking right now, with running back Leddie Brown coming alive of late. Brown had 111 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 24 carries against TCU and rushed for 109 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 22 attempts against the Cyclones. Oklahoma State’s defense presents a tough challenge for Brown, but it could be Brown who’s going to be the handful for the Cowboys’ stop unit, given the zone he’s in of late. West Virginia is still a pass-heavy team, too, which means Brown can pick his spots while quarterback Jarret Doge tries to stretch the Cowboys’ defense with a passing attack that’s 32nd nationally with 268.4 passing yards per game.
West Virginia is 5-3 ATS overall and 3-1 ATS at home this season.
Oklahoma State wins, 28-24.
