The Oklahoma Sooners are the favorites to win the Big 12 championship in 2011, but if one team is going to spoil the party for OU, it’s going to be the winner of this Saturday’s OSU-A&M tilt.

Oklahoma State Cowboys @ Texas A&M Aggies - Saturday, September 24

Sports betting line: Texas A&M -3

Why Oklahoma State Will Win

The nation’s MLB baseball betting experts will be riveted on the race for the American League wild card between the Boston Red Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays when this game kicks off in College Station, Texas. With that having been said, even a baseball guy could tell you that the two pigskin pitchers in a football game are very important. More specifically, a baseball guru knows that having a veteran trigger man on the mound – or under center – can make a huge difference in the cauldron of big-game pressure. This is most definitely a big game for Oklahoma State and Texas A&M. The winner gets the inside track to second place in the Big 12 and a shot – later in the season – against conference favorite Oklahoma. The stakes are high, which means that the quarterback position takes on center stage in this contest. Advantage, Oklahoma State.
The Cowboys, as the road team in this showdown, are particularly blessed because their signal caller is almost 28 years old. Brandon Weeden pursued a professional baseball career, in fact, before an arm injury derailed that dream. Weeden was able to return to college and chase gridiron glory as a quarterback. He has learned to transfer his competitive instincts from the diamond to the realm of pigskin. Weeden has been a very able custodian of OSU’s offense under former coordinator Dana Holgorsen and this season under new play caller Todd Monken. Weeden offers Oklahoma State and head coach Mike Gundy a steady presence in the pocket. If Weeden is given enough time by his line against a fire-breathing A&M pass rush, the Cowboys have receiver Justin Blackmon and other playmakers on the edges who can outclass the Aggie secondary.

Why Texas A&M Will Win

When you mull over your sports bet in this contest, it’s worth noting that Texas A&M not only produced a strong second half to the 2010 regular season (going 6-0 after a 3-3 start), but then picked up where it left off in game one of the 2011 campaign. A thorough thrashing of Southern Methodist ( the defending West Division champion in Conference USA) showed that the Aggies haven’t lost their competitive edge. Coach Mike Sherman has broken through with this team; his players are buying what he’s selling, meaning that the Aggies have crossed an important threshold in terms of their self-belief and confidence. If A&M plays the same way it’s been playing since mid-October of last year, it will prevail.

Who Will Win

Plainly put, Weeden is the X-factor on Saturday. His poise and presence in the pocket will make it hard for A&M to rattle him. The Aggies’ defense is solid, but not overwhelming, and as long as the Weeden-Blackmon combo can play pitch and catch, Oklahoma State owns the biggest hammer on the field. Take the Cowboys on the road.
