Why Bet On Oklahoma?

The Sooners will be highly motivated to get back in the win column after suffering a crushing 48-41 road loss to K-State the last time out. The good news is that the Sooners will also be well-rested after getting a bye last weekend and this is a team that will be looking to win out in order to keep their College Football Playoff hopes alive.

Iowa State vs Oklahoma Expert Analysis and Prediction

Oklahoma might be playing at home and the Sooners might be desperate to reach the CFP after their upset loss the last time out, but Iowa State has the look of an underdog team that is going to cover the chalk in this one if you ask me. The Cyclones have not lost a game by more than a touchdown this season and while they average almost 14 fewer points per game than Oklahoma, Iowa State also has the slightly better defense in this Big 12 battle. The Sooners are 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games in November while Iowa State has been a cash cow the last two seasons when it comes to their conference clashes. I think the two-touchdown spread here is going to be just a bit too much for the Sooners to cover.

Pick: Oklahoma 38 Iowa State 28
