Oklahoma State looking to bounce back
Oklahoma State had a bye following its 45-35 loss at Texas Tech two weeks ago. The Cowboys have lost two of their last three games to drop to 4-2 on the season. They are 1-2 in the Big 12, 5-1 against the spread and 3-3 with the over/under total.
Like usual, Oklahoma State has one of the top offenses in the nation. The Cowboys are averaging 39.8 points and 528.3 yards per game this year while allowing 27.5 points and 415 per game on defense. Chuba Hubbard is leading the offense with 1,094 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns while Spencer Sanders has thrown for 1,333 yards and 10 touchdowns, but also has eight interceptions. Sanders has also rushed for 426 yards and two scores. Tylan Wallace is the team’s leading receiver with 39 catches for 703 yards and seven touchdowns.
Baylor keeps perfect record
The Baylor Bears kept their unbeaten season going last week with a 33-30 OT win over Texas Tech at home. The Bears are 6-0 on the season, 3-0 in the Big 12, 3-3 against the spread and 3-3 with the over/under total.
Baylor has been pretty soundly balanced on offense and defense. The offense is putting up 37.8 points and 475.5 yards per game while the defense is giving up 17.8 points and 340.2 yards per contest. Quarterback Charlie Brewer has thrown for 1,554 yards and 11 touchdowns this year to lead the offense while John Lovett is the leading rusher with 389 yards and three touchdowns. Denzel Mims is the team’s leading receiver with 32 catches for 503 yards and five touchdowns.
College Football Betting Trends
The Cowboys are 8-1 against the spread in their last nine games on fieldturf and 7-0 ATS in their last seven against a winning team.
The Bears have covered the spread in five straight following a failed cover and are 5-1 ATS in their last six against winning teams.
The home team has won eight of the last nine in this series, but Baylor has covered the spread in three of the last four. The Cowboys have looked pretty good this year until the letdown at Texas Tech. At home, Oklahoma State has been solid. Baylor has been impressive this season, especially on defense, but the Bears are running into the best offense they have seen yet. Not to mention, they run into them on the road. I expect Oklahoma State to be well prepared with a week off and coming off a loss.
