Oklahoma State on a hot streak
Oklahoma State is riding a three-game win streak right now following a 31-13 win over Kansas at home last weekend. The Cowboys have held their last three opponents to 27 points or less. Oklahoma State is 7-3 on the season, 4-3 in the Big 12, 8-2 against the spread and 5-5 with the over/under total
The Cowboys have been improving on defense this season, now giving up 27.7 points and 423.4 yards per contest. Kolby Harvell-Peel is leading the unit with 60 tackles and five interceptions. Offensively, Oklahoma State is putting up 36.5 points and 494.7 yards per game. Chuba Hubbard has been one of the top running backs in the country this year, rushing for 1,726 yards and 20 touchdowns. Spencer Sanders has thrown for 2,065 yards and 16 touchdowns while rushing for 625 yards and two scores. Tylan Wallace is the leading receiver with 53 catches for 903 yards and eight touchdowns.
Mountaineers with an upset
West Virginia is coming off a surprising win on the road last weekend, best Kansas State 24-20 to put an end to a five-game losing streak. The Mountaineers are now 4-6 on the season, 2-5 in the Big 12, 4-5-1 against the spread and 6-4 with the under.
Usually known for its offense, things have been ugly for West Virginia this year. The Mountaineers are averaging just 21.4 points and 328.8 yards per game this year. Defensively, WVU is giving up 30.9 points and 421.8 yards per contest. Austin Kendall is leading West Virginia this year with 1,989 passing yards and 12 touchdowns, but he also has 10 interceptions.

College Football Betting Trends
The Cowboys are 21-7 with the over in their last 28 games in November and 27-13 with the over in their last 40 Big 12 games.
The Mountaineers have hit the over in five of their last six following a win and in five of their last seven games in November.
These two have hit the over in their last two meetings, but I expect things to be much different this time around. Oklahoma State’s defense is in a nice groove right now and facing a WVU team that hasn’t scored more than 24 points in over a month. The Mountaineers just can’t get on track with the ball. Oklahoma State also hasn’t been setting the world ablaze on offense. The Cowboys haven’t scored more than 35 points in two months. I don’t think that changes on the road. Oddsmakers are asking for a little too much from these offenses to get to 61 points.
