Baylor vs. Ok State Prediction

College Football Week 7 Predictions: Baylor vs. Oklahoma State 10/14/17

Will Oklahoma State rout Baylor or will the Bears hang with the Cowboys today as a huge underdog at 3:30PM ET?

THE ODDS:  According to oddsmakers from online sports book, the Cowboys are 26-point home favorites versus the Bears after opening as 23.5-point favorites. The total, meanwhile, now sits at 68.5 points at the majority of sports books after hitting the board at 72.

BAYLOR BEARS: During practice this week, Baylor attempted to replicate the noise that it will hear on Saturday at Boone Pickens Stadium by piping in loud sounds on the speakers. Despite their efforts, the Bears know how challenging it will be to win in Stillwater today.

“Yeah, it gets loud there,” said Baylor junior offensive tackle Patrick Lawrence. “They are right on top of you, their sidelines are very small. Only a few guys have actually been to Stillwater and seen what it’s like. So guys are going to have to get used to it quickly because we have a young team.”

OKLAHOMA STATE COWBOYS: There seems to be a renewed sense of focus in Stillwater after Oklahoma lost to Iowa State last week. Now the Sooners and Cowboys both have one loss apiece, while TCU (who beat OK State) remains unbeaten.

"At the beginning, I know everybody was talking about national championship, going to the playoffs, winning a Big 12 championship," Chris Lacy said. "Now, everybody's talking about, 'We have to win this week.'

"We do have that one loss, so we can't look forward."

OUR PREDICTION: I don't see how the Bears will slow down this Ok State offense. The Cowboys are second in the nation with 583.4 yards per game and are averaging 46.8 points per contest. Mason Rudolph has been outstanding, completing 67.6 percent of his passes for 1,909 yards and 16 touchdowns with just four interceptions. The Cowboys simply have too many weapons in both the receiving and rushing game for Baylor to keep pace. With 59% of public bettors also on OK State, most people seem to be expecting a rout today.
