Oklahoma State Opens As Two Touchdown Underdog

Vegas has spoken, and they like the Sooners

NCAA Football: Oklahoma State at Texas Christian Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

We’re officially in Bedlam week! This year’s Big 12 winner take-all-game between the Sooners and Cowboys takes place Saturday morning in Norman.

Vegas’ numbers for championship week games were released earlier today, and while both teams sport a 9-2 record Oklahoma State opens as a two touchdown road underdog.

That’s the biggest dog the Cowboys have been this season. Previously it was to Baylor, who was favored by seven going into the week-four match-up.

So far this season, Oklahoma State is 9-2 straight up and 7-4 against the spread, while Oklahoma is 9-2 straight up and 5-6 against the spread.

OSU is coming off a bye-week. We’ve previously looked at Gundy’s record after the bye; he’s 11-8. Against OU he’s 2-2.

If you’re a betting man, i’d go with the Cowboys here, especially against the spread. Since 2008 the average margin of victory is 16 points. However, over the last four games it’s 10. That’s only because of last year’s 28 point Sooner win.

Bedlam kicks off at 11:30 a.m. no Saturday. The game is being televised on FOX.
