College Football Betting Trends
The Cowboys have covered the spread in five straight games on fieldturf and in 20 of their last 28 non-conference games.
The Golden Hurricanes are 3-10 against the spread in their last 13 games against Big 12 opponents and 2-7 ATS in their last nine games following a cover.
Oklahoma State has already hit the road and proved it can cover a spread when it did that in the opener against Oregon State. The Cowboys have a powerful offense that is definitely more fearsome than that of Tulsa. The Golden Hurricanes haven’t looked bad on defense, but they are facing an offense unlike anything they have played this season. Oklahoma State should continue to overpower its opponent and cover this two-touchdown spread by simply playing at a faster pace than Tulsa.
