Oklahoma State Season Odds
STILLWATER, OK (TheSpread) – Following a surprising 7-6 record in the 2014 season, will Oklahoma State get back to being a Big 12 contender in the 2015 season?
According to the latest oddsmakers, Oklahoma State is currently listed with 66/1 odds to win the College Football Playoffs this upcoming season. The Cowboys are also getting odds of +750 to win the Big 12 Conference, while their over/under total for wins in 2015 has been set at 7.5.
Mike Gundy is entering his 11th season as head coach of Oklahoma State. He has amassed an 84-44 record in the 10 years prior to this with a 49-35 Big 12 record. Last year, the Cowboys were just 7-6 overall and 4-5 in the Big 12. The 7-6 record was Gundy’s worst since 2007 and their seventh-place finish in the Big 12 was their worst to date.
Known for being a tremendous offense, Oklahoma State was far from it in 2014. The Cowboys averaged 27.6 points and 378.8 yards per game on offense. Adding to the problems for Oklahoma State was its defense was also rough, giving up 31.2 points per game. The team is turning to Mason Rudolph at quarterback. He threw for 853 yards with six touchdowns over the final three games of the year. The team will have to find a new steady back to carry the ball this season, but it does return its leading three receivers from the 2014 squad.
Oklahoma State opens the season with a rare road trip to Central Michigan before returning home to host Central Arkansas and Texas-San Antonio. Big 12 play features home games with Kansas State, Kansas, TCU, Baylor and Oklahoma. Road trips include stops at Texas, West Virginia, Texas Tech and Iowa State. Oklahoma State gets its toughest conference games at home, so if it can find its offense, it could be a big year for the Cowboys.
