Key Betting Trends
The favorite has cashed in nine of the last 12 meetings between these two teams while the home team is 8-3 against the number in the last 11 meetings.
OUR PREDICTION: Oklahoma State surrendered 62 points to Oklahoma last Saturday while scoring 52 points itself, so taking the under this weekend feels like a foolish proposition. That said, the Cyclones actually play a little defense, unlike the Sooners, who could make the playoffs this season despite dragging a defensive unit into the top 4 that isn’t worthy.
The under has cashed in all four of the Cyclones’ last four games overall, is 4-0 in their last four conference games, and is 42-18-1 in their last 61 games after allowing more than 200 yards rushing in their previous game.
Despite their explosive offense, the under is actually 6-2 in the Cowboys’ last eight road games and 4-1 in their last five games played on grass. In their last eight games after accumulating more than 200 yards rushing in their previous contest, the under is also 6-2.
It’s hard to know whether or not OK State will get off the mat after losing the Bedlam Game a week ago and essentially having its playoff hopes crushed. But I’m willing to bet they come out somewhat sluggish against an ISU team that still has plenty to play for.
