What to Know
A Big 12 battle is on tap between Oklahoma State and Texas Tech at noon ET on Saturday at Jones AT&T Stadium. Oklahoma State has seen their point totals decreasing over the past three games, a vulnerability Texas Tech is surely hoping to exploit.
The oddsmakers expected fireworks between the Cowboys and Kansas State, but the 60-point over/under wound up being a bit inflated. Oklahoma State was able to grind out a solid victory over Kansas State last week, winning 26-13. RB Chuba Hubbard went supernova for Oklahoma State as he rushed for 296 yards and one touchdown on 25 carries. One of the most memorable plays of the game was Hubbard’s 84-yard touchdown rush in the third quarter.
The Red Raiders were out to avenge their 51-46 defeat to Oklahoma from the last time they squared off against one another, but they had no such luck. The Red Raiders played a matchup they are hoping to forget as they lost a 55-16 blowout to Oklahoma. The Red Raiders were in a tough position by the half, with the score already sitting at 34-10.
The Cowboys are the favorite in this one, with an expected 10-point margin of victory. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (3-0-1), so they might be worth a quick bet.
Oklahoma State’s win lifted them to 4-1 while Texas Tech’s loss dropped them down to 2-2. We’ll find out if the Cowboys can add another positive mark to their record or if Texas Tech can shake off the defeat and take the spring out of Oklahoma State’s step.
