College Football Betting Preview
Oklahoma (10-1) at Oklahoma State (9-2)
Saturday, 8:00 pm Eastern – ABC
SBG Global Opening Line: Oklahoma – 7 , Total 72
Third-ranked Oklahoma will try and move up in the BCS standings on Saturday as they play at rival Oklahoma State. With a win against the Cowboys, the Sooners would almost assuredly get a spot in next week’s Big 12 title game against Missouri. If they would go on to beat the Tigers they would probably then play in the BCS National Championship game. SBG Global reports that early College Football betting has the public taking Oklahoma on the Road.
The BCS standings may be a little tough to understand but there is no doubt that Oklahoma is playing as well as anyone in the country. They have scored more than 60 points in their last three games. Quarterback Sam Bradford is now a serious contender for the Heisman Trophy as he has thrown for 3,710 yards and 42 touchdown passes this season. The running game of the Sooners with DeMarco Murray and Chris Brown looks great and even the Sooners defense is playing well. Oklahoma may need to be firing on all cylinders to win at Stillwater against a very talented Oklahoma State team. “I think they know that they just can’t come in here and manhandle us and we know that we have just as good a chance of winning as they do now, so it isn’t as one-sided and it makes for a better game,” Oklahoma State fullback Bryant Ward said. “We both come in more ready to play, we both prepare harder and I think it gives a better show.”
Oklahoma State has only two losses on the season and those were to Texas and Texas Tech. The question on Saturday will be whether or not the Cowboys offense can keep pace with the high powered attack of the Sooners. Running back Kendall Hunter has 1,434 yards overall and leads the Big 12 in rushing. Last year Hunter was held in check as the Cowboys lost to the Sooners.
