Gambling lines for individual college football games don’t come out until the week of a game. However, this year you can bet on some extra early lines for some games.
That includes a few of Oklahoma State’s games.
9/01 | Oklahoma State -17 over Tulsa
Odds Shark as Oklahoma State as a 17 point favorite in their season opener over the Golden Hurricane. OSU and Tulsa are coming off 10-3 seasons. While this could end up being a sneaky-good game between two quality offenses, I think Cowboy fans would be surprised to see OSU win by less than three scores, but you never know what can happen in a season opener. Ruling: Bad bet
9/16 | Oklahoma State -4.5 over Pittsburgh
OSU had a close game with Pitt last season in Stillwater winning 45-38. With all OSU is returning and the number of weapons Pitt lost, I’d expect OSU to win by a larger margin than 4.5 points. Ruling: Good bet
10/28 | Oklahoma State -5 over West Virginia
The Cowboys will travel to Morgantown this year, where they are 1-1 since the Mountaineers joined the league. West Virginia, like a number of Big 12 teams this year, are expected to be good, but have a lot of questions marks heading into the season. As well as WVU usually plays OSU, I’m surprised to see the margin this large this early. Ruling: Bad bet
11/04 | Oklahoma State +1 to Oklahoma
Of course the Sooners are favored, they’re the favorites to win the Big 12. However, at only a one point favorite, this is essentially a toss up. Ruling: ???
Oklahoma State should be favored in most if not all of their games next season, especially early in the season. If OSU is getting 17 against Tulsa, I can’t wait to see the line for the Kansas and Texas Tech games.
If I was a betting man, I’d like that line against Pitt. I don’t think OSU blows them out, but I do think they win by at least a touchdown.
So what do you think about the odds? Based on these numbers, which game would you put your money on today?
