Against The Spread Pick
After Oregon’s loss, the Oklahoma Sooners are back in the playoff picture, but likely need to win this game and the Big 12 Championship to get into the playoffs. Oklahoma enters this game ranked 7th in the College Football Playoff Rankings and are on a three game winning streak. However, each of those three wins has been decided by four points or less including a 28-24 win over TCU at home on Saturday. Meanwhile, the Oklahoma State Cowboys are 21st in the College Football Playoff Rankings with a record of 8-3. The Cowboys enter this game on a four-game winning streak and have won all four games by at least a touchdown including a 20-13 road win over the Mountaineers last Saturday. I look for the Sooners to get the win, but anything is possible in a rivalry game which is why I am going with Oklahoma State and the 13 points.
Over Under Pick
Offensively, both teams rank in the top 25 in college football. Oklahoma enters this game ranked 5th in points per game with 45.27 while Oklahoma State ranks 22nd with 35. Defensively, both teams are nearly identical with the Sooners allowing 25.45 and the Cowboys allowing 26.36. With how strong both teams have been offensively I look for the over 69.5 points to be a solid option on Saturday.
