NCAAF Week 14 Free Picks – Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State
The Oklahoma Sooners travel to arch rival Oklahoma State to take on the Cowboys. The Sooners were brilliant last weekend throttling the at that time number 2 BCS ranked Texas Tech Raiders. How did the Sooners do it? By playing up to their defensive capabilities. Sports betting fans will note that Oklahoma isn’t your typical garden variety college football team.
Football betting fans have to appreciate how the Sooners’ defense more often than not comes up huge in important games like last Saturday’s battle versus Texas Tech. The Oklahoma Sooners are 10 and 1 straight-up and 8 and 2 against the BetUS online wagering spread.
The Oklahoma State Cowboys have had a much better season than almost any BetUS Sportsbook betting fan would have anticipated. The Cowboys are loaded on offense and have a very good defense. Unfortunately, this terrific fortune has occurred when the Big-12 is about as good as it gets. College football betting fans should note that Oklahoma State is also 8 and 2 against the BetUS online wagering spread.
Here are the BetUS NCAAF betting odds for this game:
Kick-off: 11/29/2008 8:00 pm est
Oklahoma Sooners – 8 ½ – 110 – 350 O 72 – 110
Oklahoma State Cowboys + 8 ½ – 110 + 290 U 72 – 110
The Oklahoma Sooners are 6 and 1 against the spread in their last 7 games following an against the spread victory.
The Over is 4 and 0 in the Oklahoma Sooners last 4 games on the road.
The Oklahoma State Cowboys are 7 and 0 against the spread in their last 7 games on field turf.
The Over is 28 and 8 in the Oklahoma State Cowboys last 36 games at home.
This game comes down to a very simple thing. The Oklahoma Sooners are an incredible team while the Oklahoma State Cowboys are a very good team.
In their lone loss of the season, in the Red River Shoot-out to the Texas Longhorns, the Sooners played most of that game without superstar quarterback Sam Bradford. Bradford is healthy for this and Oklahoma knows that they are oh so close to getting into the BCS Championship game.
I’m surprised at how low the BetUS online sportsbook against the spread odds are for this game. I mean, Oklahoma is just a far superior team that, from what I’ve seen, won’t let anybody stand in their way at this point in the college football season.
NCAAF Week 14 Prediction:
I’m going with Oklahoma to cover against the spread. I’ll give up the 8 ½ and watch Oklahoma roll to a decisive victory over the Oklahoma State Cowboys.
