Why Bet On Oklahoma State’s College Football Odds?

OSU (6-1) escaped Texas 13-10 last week in overtime. Rudolph was held to under 300 yards passing for the first time since facing Oklahoma last year. The Cowboys, who had scored at least 20 points in 35 straight games, fell short of that mark. They went 12 consecutive drives without a touchdown after J.D. King’s rushing score in the first quarter. The Cowboys’ defense carried the day. It held Texas to a mere 42 rushing yards on 33 carries and capped the day with safety Ramon Richards’ interception of Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger to seal the victory.Those 13 points were their fewest since a 28-7 loss to Texas in 2014. Oklahoma State averaged 611 yards a game before Saturday, best in the nation, but gained 428 against Texas. The Cowboys scored the winning points on Matt Ammendola’s 34-yard field goal on the first possession of OT. He missed a 29-yard attempt in the fourth quarter. Rudolph tied Gundy’s OSU record with his 28th career win as a starting quarterback. Rudolph is now 28-7 as a starter and has led the Cowboys to nine victories in games in which the Cowboys trailed in the second half.Washington leads the nation with 130.6 receiving yards per game and he and Marcell Ateman have hit the 100-yard mark in four of their last five games. On top of that, running back Justice Hill is the Big 12’s leading rusher with 750 yards and has hit 100 yards in four straight games. The last time a Cowboy rushed for at least 100 yards in four straight games was Joseph Randle in the first four games of the 2012 season. An OSU back hasn’t rushed for at least 100 yards in five consecutive games since Kendall Hunter accomplished the feat in 2010.OSU is outscoring opponents, 87-20, in first quarters this year. The Cowboy defense has pitched a first-quarter shutout in four of its seven games this season.
