Treadwell to much for OKST?
Can Ole Miss utilize its top skill player in Laquon Treadwell today when the Rebels take on Oklahoma State in the Sugar Bowl?
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Ole Miss is the clear favorite in this game, as the Rebels are getting odds of -9.5 points against Oklahoma State. The over/under total for the game has been set at 68.5 points. These two meet up tonight at 8:30PM ET on ESPN. The game is being played from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA.
Treadwell is the top skill-position player for the Rebels (9-3, 7-5 ATS) and has emerged as a top WR draft prospect. He has caught 76 passes for 1,082 yards and eight touchdowns in the 2015 season. The 6-2 junior is a big-play receiver, as he is averaging 14.2 yards per catch.
Tonight, Ole Miss meets up with Oklahoma State (10-2, 6-6 ATS), a team that isn’t known for tremendous defense. The Cowboys are 95th nationally in total defense, giving up 429.5 yards per game. They are also 93rd in pass defense, giving up 244.2 yards per game through the air. That should mean big things for Treadwell and the Rebels and oddsmakers see it that way as well. Treadwell has been given an over/under of 105.5 receiving yards and 6.5 receptions for the Sugar Bowl. Treadwell has had six games over 100 yards this season and he has caught 7 passes or more in five games. With the Cowboys struggling to stop the pass, look for Ole Miss to attack with Treadwell early and often.
