Oklahoma State vs Oklahoma Betting Odds - Pokes to once again fail in big game

Posted by Blake Frazier on 11/25/2009 3:53:14 PM
football betsThe Oklahoma State vs Oklahoma betting odds has BCS implications for one team, as per usual. The strange part is that the shoe is on the other foot: Oklahoma State is eyeing the BCS, while Oklahoma will try to play spoiler. The Pokes may be higher-ranked, but online betting cappers know that they’re not expected to win this game. While Oklahoma has been very vulnerable away from home this year, they don’t lose very often in Norman.

Oklahoma State vs Oklahoma betting odds: Oklahoma -9.5
WHAT: NCAA Football betting
WHEN: Saturday, November 28th – 12:30 PM ET
WHERE: Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial – Norman, OK
PICK: Oklahoma -9.5

Oklahoma State vs Oklahoma betting odds maker breakdown: What’s On The Line
Surprisingly, it’s Oklahoma State (9-2, 6-1) who has more on the line for bedlam this year. Mike Gundy’s crew has been fairly good this year, but two key losses to Houston and Texas have dropped them from content. Even so, they could be BCS-bound with an at-large bid if they can trounce Oklahoma.

For the Sooners (6-5, 4-3), they’ve had a tumultuous year by their standards. They’ve lost two of their last three games, including a blowout loss to Texas Tech last week. Even so, the Sooners are perfect at home and they have only lost twice at home in the Bob Stoops era.

Betting Edge: Oklahoma State

Oklahoma State vs Oklahoma betting odds maker breakdown: Offense
The Pokes offense was supposed to be amazing this year, but stud running back Kendall Hunter has been hurt, star wideout Dez Bryant has been suspended, and quarterback Zac Robinson has been good, not great. Last week, the Cowboys barely got past Colorado, even though they were without their starting quarterback. Robinson should be back for this game but the Cowboys offense doesn’t pack as much of a punch as everyone thought they would.

At the same time, neither has Oklahoma’s. The Sooners offensive line has been weak, losing their Heisman quarterback Sam Bradford for the year and being without premier tight end Jermaine Gresham. Even so, this unit has still averaged 49.8 points per game at home this year. Landry Jones is getting better and the backfield is still deep. That may be enough in this contest.

Betting Edge: Even

Oklahoma State vs Oklahoma betting odds maker breakdown: Defense
Sportsbook odds makers have noticed that the Cowboys defense has played well this year, which is why their totals have dropped a little bit. Oklahoma State is second in the Big 12 in rush defense, which will be the key to this game. If the Cowboys can shutdown the Sooners running game and force the game on Jones’ shoulder, they will have a very good chance to win.

For Oklahoma, their defense hasn’t been the problem. They took one on the chin last week – giving up 41 points and over 500 yards to Texas Tech – and they’re going to be fired up this week. Keep an eye on linebacker Ryan Reynolds, who may miss this contest with a foot injury.

Betting Edge: Oklahoma

Oklahoma State vs Oklahoma betting odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries
As mentioned, Reynolds should be out of this game with a foot injury and he’ll be replaced by Austin Box. The Sooners will also be without starting center Ben Habern, who is the third Sooners linemen to be lost for the season.

Betting Edge: Oklahoma State

Oklahoma State vs Oklahoma betting odds breakdown: Outlook and Pick
NCAA football betting fans are used to seeing the opposite in the Bedlam Series, but this year, the Cowboys are trying to creep into a BCS bowl while the Sooners are acting as spoiler. The bottom line is that the Sooners don’t lose at home, and the Cowboys have proven that they can only beat weak opponents. Expect a good game from Landry Jones, who has played well at home this year, and look for the Sooners defense to do the rest.

BLAKE’S PICK: Oklahoma -9.5
