Oklahoma has won and covered the spread in back-to-back games, including a 41-31 victory over the Kansas State Wildcats as 5.5-point road underdogs on Nov. 23, while going OVER the total in each of those affairs. The Sooners have a Big 12 Conference-best 16 wins over AP Top 10 teams under Bob Stoops with a 4-3 mark on the road, which is important to consider when making your college football betting picks Saturday afternoon. Oklahoma is 1-3 SUATS as an underdog the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 3-1 in that situation.
The Sooners rank second in the Big 12 and 15th nationally in averaging 242.3 rushing yards per game, while their defense paces the conference in surrendering just 330.5 yards a contest. After Blake Bell started the previous eight games, Oklahoma signal-caller Trevor Knight ended up under center versus the Wildcats—responding with a career high in passing yards and completions. It’s important to point out that the program owns a 82-18-7 advantage in this series, which includes wins in nine of the last 10 meetings.
Oklahoma State will try to make its senior class the winningest in school history, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college basketball betting lines in Week 15. The Cowboys are looking to improve to 10-3 in their last 13 games versus ranked opponents, while also capturing their 10th straight home win. Offensively, the team has scored 20 or more points in 50 consecutive games dating back to the start of the 2010 campaign, which is the longest such streak in the country. Oklahoma State is 11-1 SU and 9-3 ATS as favorites of 10.5 to 21 points since 2011, with the OVER going 7-5 in those 12 opportunities.
The Cowboys outscored their opponents by a 181-70 margin in winning their four games in November, with the offense scoring touchdowns on 18 of 19 trips inside the red zone. Oklahoma State also finished that period of time with a plus-seven in turnover margin. The host is certainly a worthy favorite due to being one of only four teams in the country that rank in the Top 15 nationally in both scoring offense and scoring defense.
Sports bettors will likely back the Cowboys due to their 19-7 ATS mark in their last 26 home games.
